Area: ColoradoI own 11 acres in the Rocky mountains at 8,000 ft. I work full time so don't have enough time for all the work that needs to be done. Our (my 2 sons are involved-off and on but ultimately will be a part of things) dream is to make our living off of our property.
Area: Maine, USAFamily of five, mom, dad and three kids (14, 17 & 20) We're a vegetarian homeschooling family who home birth and home church. We're pretty much free spirits who love to live simply and wholesomely. We live in a rural setting, close to Machias surrounded by forest, farmland, lakes, and a spectacular sea coast. Our Farmstead is totally organic and vegetarian and we have a large garden and plenty of room to host. You would have your own room and ideally blend into our fairly simple lifestyle. We are a happy, fun loving and hardworking family. We love meeting new people and sharing cultures and ideas with a very open and loving attitude. Interaction and good communication skills would be an advantage. We really appreciate kindness, a good sense of humor, appreciation for the simple joys in life, and a positive outlook on things. If you like new adventures and trying new things, if you like to learn new skills and new ways of thinking, if you see minor hardships as a challange instead of a reason to complain, if you are somebody who likes to work hard, but is also playful, fun, and pleasant to others, you will fit in very well with our family. Most of last year and so far this one too we have been completing the renovation of our home, so there are still little jobs to get done. If you are looking for somewhere to hang out for a while in a fresh and interesting location and have a good attitude towards work and communication then we think we should appeal. Some but not all meals will be provided. Guests should plan on locally purchasing some food, there are also food banks that provide a weekly allotment of foodstuffs. We have a sharing cabinet where we and others share foods with one another. We are happy to have you join us for some meals, either lunches or dinner.
Area: ZurichWe are an American family of four with a little dog, living just outside of Zurich (Horgen). Our sons were born April 2009 and June 2010. We love Switzerland and all it's natural beauty. We have been here since Feb 2011 and haven't stopped exploring Europe. My husband works full time and I am doing research and study to start a business. There are many activities to enjoy close by. One can get to Zurich by train in less than 20 minutes, swimming in the lake in summer, hiking, skiing and other amazing mountain acitivites all within 40 minutes drive!
Area: AzoresWe are a Swiss couple running a bed & breakfast and renting out two holiday houses on our land property of 4'500m2 on the island São Miguel, the largest island of the Azores. The dinner we offer to our guests is a 3 course meal, which we enjoy all together, which makes a great experience meeting people from other countries. We've got 2 dogs and 2 cats - so you should love animals. We are looking for workawayers for the low season (october until mai) to help us to prepare the holidayhouses, our mainhouse and the surroundings for the high season. May be, that also in the low season we've got guests and need your help in the kitchen and serving the dishes.
