Area: FethiyeLocated in the midst of the ruins of ancient Lycia, Our Lodge is an excellent Turkey beach hotel near Fethiye on the south west coast. The hotel is surrounded by a delightful orchard just behind a quiet desolate sandy beach, only approx. 9 miles from the center of Fethiye. Situated in a garden with organically grown fruit trees, this small beachfront hotel features a restaurant bordering the sandy beach and home-cooked meals. The restaurant uses organic ingredients and is situated next to a small creek. Its beach-side terrace offers stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea and has an adjoining bar that serves cooled drinks on the hotel's beach benches.

Area: KalmarWe are a family of six. Emma (24, law school), Karl (33, doctor), our 2-year old daughter, our newborn daughter and two dogs. Two years ago we bought an older house that we hope to renovate with care and preservation of the old touch. A lot has been done but we still have some final touches left, right now mostly finding furniture, lamps, carpets and other stuff that fits in with the style. The garden is not big, about 700 square meters, but we hope to grow some vegetables, fruits and herbs in the future. For this to happen, the garden needs to be fixed up properly and we need help with both work and planning. We also hope that the garden can become a good place for dogs and children to explore, play and learn. They like it already but the garden needs more fencing since our neighbours drive way is rather close. Our daughters and our two dogs are with us in our daily work and we hope you enjoy spending time with them. Since we are quite busy with work and studies we really appreciate baby/dog sitting sometimes.
Area: South AustraliaI live on a 150 acre farm property 8 kilometres from Gawler on the edge of the Barossa Valley. I have 11 acres of vines (Shiraz and Cab Sav) ,that have been productive for 10 years. I also have 100 lambing ewes. Much of the remaining land is share farmed and cropped with cereal crops. I have 2 border collie dogs who help with the sheep work and 2 alpacas who protect the lambs. I have 3 grown up children who are married and no longer live in the area. I grow most of my own organic vegetables and have about 40 fruit trees. I have a pool and a fairly large garden.
Area: Porto and NorthHello :) I am Adrian, 25 years old, Hotel Manager / Tour Operator / Travel Agent. My passions are: living, traveling, sharing, learning, pizza of course, fitness, sun, laughs, cinema, photography, comedy, simplicity, peace and so many other things I do not remember right now because it was really late when I wrote this :) I have been living in London for the past 2 years. Before that I was living in Tenerife. Now I decided to spend July and August in Braga with my family and friends. I am looking for somebody who wants to join me in this summer holidays and share the fun (and work sometimes) :) I am going to become a Nomadic BackPacker this September but first I want to host somebody from WorkAway :) I am a CouchSurfer enthusiastic as well. I used to host lots of CouchSurfers in London and now I want to keep hosting and sharing in Portugal. I am a traveler and travelers are my favorite people :D I live in a big house with a big garden and a swimming pool. We are 4 people: Mom, Dad (cool 50 year old people), me and my favorite person in the world: my brother (13 years old). We have small dogs and one cat (but the cat acts like a dog, so... I don't know... Can I have a Psychologist Vet, please?). My parents are working at the butchery most of the time. My mom is the nicest and coolest of all moms out there (she is getting a tattoo this summer). I am sure you will love to meet her. She is how every human should be like! My dad is a hard worker. He does not spend much time at home and he does not talk much. It is really easy to live with him. My plans for this summer are to enjoy the Sun, the People and just relax. Me and my friends usually go out at night, river beach during the day, and that is it basically :) Just chilling, sun bathing, eating fruit, play some volleyball or tennis (and yes, I can teach you how to play tennis :) Well, I am sure you have lots of questions that I cannot predict right now, so just give me a shout and I will be glad to chat with you. Soon I will update more photos of the surroundings, my family, animals, friends, moments, etc. (And now, the real reason why I am looking for somebody to spend this summer with: I have been living in Central London for the last 2 years. I am used to talk with hundreds of people during the day (my job) and to go out and meet countless people at night (common London life style). Now I am going to move to the countryside... With my parents... And even though I really want to spend some time away from the craziness of a big city, it might gets boring at some point. But, if you join me, we can always do something awesome together (explore Braga, visit Gerês, go to the cinema, do charity, save the world, etc). Since I grew up there, I know lots of nice people and I will introduce you to all of them :) I would also love to practice my Spanish / French / Italian. You can practice English or Portuguese with me as well. PS: I am not saying that I want somebody to entertain me when I am bored. What I am trying to say it that I am a sharer. I love to share. And it would be a pleasure to share some knowledge, ignorance, experiences, moments, fun, adventures, etc. I think that is it, this is the most honest I can be. As I said before, just send me a message so we can chat and discuss more details) See you soon amigos, Adriano Vieira
