Area: Santa Eugenia, MallorcaWe are a family of three kids, two German Shepards, and four cats. My hubby is originally from Wales, while I am from Canada. My children range in age from 18 to 5. Michael is an IT expert with a passion for music. We had a fully operational music studio which was used for Michael's spare time, as we have moved, we are needing to finish the rebuilding of the studio. My oldest daughter is a singer and is as well attending her last year of school. The two youngest are 7 and 5 and generally get up to everything they possibley can!!! Me, I am the facilitator, with the chance to escape once every couple of weeks to let my hair down! We live in a very typical Mallorcean Village with lot's of bars and restaurants near by. There is a bus stop about a block and a half from our house that will take you to the train station in turn to Palma the main city on the island. So you will never feel stranded. We have had visitors from Canada backpacking who have found it very easy to commute from here and enjoyed their time immensely, we have had numerous workaways now and some have thought we were completely off our heads and couldn't wait to return to reality, while others embraced our weirdness and got stuck right in!!!! I look forward to hosting and meeting more people from around the world and introducing them to my slightly zany and wacky family!!!!

Livestock - about 200 sheep (including about 60 milking sheep), about 20 Devon cattle, some poultry and two sows.

Lawrence does most of the farm work and Karen does the cheese making and marketing. We are in our sixties and before 1992, were architects. Our son Bennet also lives on the farm.

Area: CaliforniaThe hostel is a cozy European-style guest house located in the historic East Village of Cambria. We are a homey creative alternative to busy dorm style youth hostels, plain-box motels and expensive B&Bs. Cambria is a quintessential California beach town and artist enclave that offers up a variety of meaningful and inspiring activities for the artist, musician, foodie, nature lover, hiker, surfer, and bicycle rider - bicycle friendly community, hiking/jogging trails, live music, restaurants & galleries to sample, and coastlines to explore, there is something for everyone. Because we are in a small town with an older population, if you are looking for excitement, bars, and clubs, this may not be the place for you. The hostel is located one mile from beautiful Moonstone Beach, and only four hours from San Francisco and Los Angeles. We are the perfect midway point along the sprawling Pacific Coast Highway! Our guests come from around the world so you're sure to meet a plethora of creative, adventurous, and talented people. A friendly neighborhood hostel, we are looking for energetic, optimistic, happy, outgoing individuals to help us build and sustain a wonderful hosteling experience for our guests and keep our environmental impacts low. Our living area is small and shared with guests, so you must be neat in your living style and enjoy being with others. The hostel requests 20 to 25 hours a week in exchange for room and a breakfast that consists of organic oats, raisins, sunflower seeds, tea, and coffee. Accommodation may be in a small room with a single bed and suitable for a travel backpack, camping, off the grid cabin with a full size bed. Volunteers have full access to the hostel that includes free wifi, showers, kitchen with a beautiful cast iron collection. We usually ask volunteers to stay a month to two month. Depending on the time of year, more of the activities will take place indoors as opposed to outdoors. HOUSEKEEPING and checking in guest are what take up most of the 20 -25 hours. If you consider these activities fun then you'll have a good time. We encourage volunteers to use the hostel as a studio space. Volunteers interested in traveling writing, music, surfing, bicycle riding, jewelry making, yoga, painting, gardening, the outdoors, video work, etc will have an opportunity for amazing experiences.
