Area: IndiaThis is a different type of Workaway post. I am looking to host a workawayer to travel to various destinations and help me with some cool projects! (No manual labor, no dishwashing, no dirty stuff!) I've been traveling for too long. I love it but I found that I was missing something. So I am starting up various cool projects to travel and perhaps make an impact in the world. These projects are borderline travel blogging but with a twist. Travel blogs are informative and enjoyable but to me they all sound the same. So I am looking to create content that shows the everyday aspect of life from all over the world. Simply put, it's a mix of National Geographic documentary + travel blog. Sounds interesting? Read on! A South Korean from Gangnam, I always tell people I meet that I'm from North Korea. People either run away, act as if they're not surprised or simply don't understand what it means to be from North Korea. I'm 29 years old and quit my overworked job last year to travel. Now travel is a full time occupation. Wanting to become one of those cool people that travel, take photos, write and become famous on the internet, I've set out on that journey myself. Now I'm starting various projects to do stuff all over the world! All projects consist of creating content online for people to enjoy. Basically I am creating experiences to share with the world. 1. Project Photo, OK? We meet tons of people when we travel. Crazy people, to fun people, to even fellow tourists. Everybody has a story and everybody has a face. People of the world love to gossip and hear of stories of fellow humans around the world. So, I'll go up to random people and say "Photo, OK?" and take their photo! -taking photos of everyone I meet on the road, and conducting a short interview, creating a video documentary of the process, uploading contents in a fun way to various blogs, etc. 2. Project Cool Little Things this project is quite difficult. buy unique and cool items from a certain place and sell in another. sounds easy but this has to be done in an artful way. can be sold on the street, online, to shop owners etc. finding the cool unique items can be difficult at first! 3. Project Whatever anything is a project. all it needs to be is well produced, well written, and placed on the internet medium for people to enjoy. ***If you've read until now, you're clearly interested. Just shoot me a short email and ask more about the details!

Area: AndaluciaHola! We are an anglo español family ;) 30mins away from Cádiz, with all the history and culture that it offers, in Chiclana de la Frontera. Our house is a typical finca in the countryside, 5 mins from the town. We are on a bus route, so it´s reasonably easy to get into town. There is an extensive travel network from there, access to sightsee and travel further afield. (trains can be caught from nearby San Fernando too) La Barrosa is one of the best beaches on the Costa de Luz, and we can boast that it is on our doorstep. Well okay, 15 mins by car, or a 30 min busride. So for any beachlovers, this could be for you! ;) Our blended family consists of my 2 spanish stepsons, ages 15 and 12, my partner Alejandro, our 15 month old adorable girl, 3 dogs and myself. (British born and bred ) We are a very warm and friendly family and would like to find someone with the same attributes- A down to earth person who has a natural affinity with kids- in particular very young ones! Our dogs are big and pretend to be intimidating, so if not a keen doggy person, then maybe think twice. Please someone who wishes to explore the área, embrace the spanish culture, and enjoy fresh air. Not a person who wishes to be shut away in their room- thats unhealthy! ;) Our house is an Andalucian country home, in the past have had horses, here, and always dogs. We can be prone to the famous levante wind, which means dirt and dust and anything blowing around, gets everywhere! Here we have a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and enjoy our way of life and are of the opinión that; "People in glass houses shouldn´t throw stones..." This is NOT for someone who has allergies to dust, pollen, any animals or insects (mosquitoes, flies, spiders) big or small, or used to living in the city or in a show home. Main role is looking after our adorable 15 month old girl, spending a little time with 2 teenage boys- football etc and undertaking basic household chores.

I live and work on the farm and also teach Tai Chi, Chi Kung and Meditation locally. My son of 29 also lives and works here, the farm has become a joint venture. He also works as part of a catering team at the big music festivals alongside being an accomplished builder using natural building techniques and materials. We are asking either 25 hours work per week spread over 5 days in exchange for accommodation and all meals. 20 hours work over 4 days exchange for breakfast and one main meal daily. 16 hours work exchange over 3 days, for accommodation plus breakfast.
