Area: OberösterreichSeeking for October urgent help for renovations in and around the house, possibly a craft clever man with experience! Ich suche für Oktober dringend Hilfe für Umbauten im und ums Haus, möglichst ein handwerklich geschickter Mann mit Erfahrung! My name is Sophia (57). I live in the countryside, in a house mostly made of natural materials and there's a wonderful view of the surrounding hills. My husband, Wolfgang (60) has his own travelling dairy, he goes to farmers and makes cheese out of their cows' milk there. Our son lives with his family opposite us. When they're not working the Workawayers could collect mushrooms with his children in a wood nearby. Our area is beautiful and off the beaten track. There are lots of paths for going walking. In the evening we could chat, play board games or play music (if the Workawayers play an instrument; e-piano, two cellos and a guitar are available). You could perhaps also visit Linz, Passau or Salzburg, we might be able to take you there if we're going or you could go by public transport. We'd also like to take the Workawayers to festivals or events in the area. For October I'm looking for one or two Workawayers. At least one of them should have experience of practical work in the house and garden. I need to take apart a wall behind the oven in the kitchen and relay the paving stones in front of the house. These are building tasks and at least one of the guests needs to be practical. The workawayers need to be able to work independently. I can't always be there and explain every step. The working hours are flexible and depend on the weather and on what work needs to be done. I can make myself understood in English and would like to learn the language better. However, I still want at least one of the Workawayers to be a German speaker so that it's easier for me to explain what you have to do.

Area: South Australia**Now looking for someone to help in the house during harvest (October to December 2014). Good English language skills are preferred. Situated in the heart of the South Australian Riverland near Loxton, our family runs a mixed cropping, broadacre farm. At this time of the year, we are looking after our crops and invite you to join us for harvest. We are approximately two and a half hours from Adelaide.
Area: MurciaHi, We have a 2 years old baby-girl (Estela). Our house is in Cartagena, a small city in the Mediterranea Sea. The weather is really mild and it is well communicated (3 hours to Valencia, 4 hours to Madrid, 2.5 to Granada, 30 min. to Murcia and besides the seaside!). It is sorrounded by little mountains and it is full of places for hiking, running, etc. We have the best place in Europe for kite-surfing (El Mar Menor) and 360 days of sun per year. We are looking for a Native English speaking girl to have our baby immersed in your language. She is now starting to say his first words and she can already speak and understand Spanish and Romanian but we need her to grow also fully fluent in English. The baby is lovely and really easy to deal with. We can offer you a room for the duration of your stay and also meals. You will need to take care of your room and help a bit with the housekeeping of the house, although the place is really easy to maintain. It is a fully renovated 4th floor high rise in Cartagena´s downtown. You may need to be with our baby just a few hours per day. It is not a full time job and we could help you on finding a job to teach English or teach conversational English. We can also teach you Spanish. There are lots of places to see around, including Granada which is 2.5 hours by car. We do not smoke nor drink alcohol. Best thing is to write or call and discuss the possibilities.
