Area: Rhône-AlpesHi I'm Peter and I'm 39 years young. In the winter, I'm working as a professional skipper in the Caribbean and in summer, I like to cruise with my sailboat in the meditteranean. Most of the time having fun with doing a lot of water sports and rockclimbing cliffs and sometimes having some charter guests on board. In the winter, my nice, comfortabel and safe sailing boat is standing on the dry while I'm working abroad. After two weeks of maintenance work in the spring the even nicer boat gets launched in the water and than all the fun starts. If you are interested to help me out with some painting, sanding wood, polishing, some general maintenance or some coocking if you like to cook, it would be much appreciated. In the meantime, I can occupy myself with the maintenance of the engine and the technical aspects of maintaining a sailing boat. If we work hard the first two weeks, I'll offer you a two week sailing holiday on the beautiful Southern french coast. The ideal time would be preparing the boat from mid may and to start sailing beginning of june
Area: GuangxiAfter lived in UK(10ys), France(2yrs), Italy, speak English/French/Italian/Chinese). I am now looking for help with guitar learning and play music together in Nanning, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. I am a singer(Chinese folk/musical/lyric)/writer...and a cook(that's true!). What I could offer: A REAL China,(Zhuang Autonomous Region, a healthy lifestyle, a stone's throw to Southeast Asia) , Nature(mountain climbing, swimming in lakes/rivers), languages! and yoga! I am training as a Yoga teacher in Nanning, in Guangxi. This intensive training is going to be last two to three months (April - June 2014). I need a guitar teacher and doing music together about two - four hours a day. You don't have to be professional but a committed teacher with decent playing and teaching skills. I know local musicians and bands, we could do 'busking ' frequently, recording in professional studios for our music, or perform for Chinese weddings! ) Guitar Lessons would expect in the early evening. Weekend is flexible. I have professional guitar lesson once a week from a local Academy, so no pressure! Life Style: I conduct a simple life. To assure energy for intensive physical training, I prefer go to bed early, 10pm - 10.30pm. I start meditation and Kundalini early in the morning. I don't expect you do the same, but if you are party animals, this is probably not suitable. Unless you could walk on clouds when you home at 3am!) Food I am a vegetarian and food lover, could eat fish and seafood, drinking/making red wine. I used to teach cooking in the EU (I could teach you cooking!)I eat mostly vegetables, bean curds, fruits, nuts, beans and whole grains. I am allergic to pork, so no cooking of pork in my apartment. I don't mind workawayers buy other type of meat and cook - as long as they clean after themselves. Life here is very interesting and it's a stone's throw to Southeast Asia, living expense is very low. In your spare time, I could teach you yoga or Chinese language/food/culture , or to work as a volunteer in a Buddhist Vegetarian restaurant or visit other fantastic places together! Such as Kunming, North Sea, etc.. If you REALLY interest in this, it would be best to talk via skype, my skype is TALKCHINAEYE. If you interest in authentic culture and Chinese people, this is your chance. You will be THE instrumental LEADER in this project, (I had MA in media/unfinished PhD in Theatre:( If you are good at English(writing), a musician(play ANY instrument), it would be fantastic!!! I will need people for at least committed three weeks to a month. However it is my duty and obligation to warn you that: it is NOT a fancy job, a quite primitive environmental if not prehistorical, you wouldn't have the same material comfort in the West EU. If you are not put off by my warning, please send me one photo, your travel plan, your we could get organised in no time!
