Région: EuropeOur Backpackers hostel in Stockholm has been voted the best hostel in Sweden repeatedly by our guests. It's run by passionate travellers and staff, providing a lot more than just a bed to sleep in. We offer a free daily sauna, run guided tours, cooking classes and adventures, as well as lending out a tandem bike for free, just to make sure our guests get the best out of their Stockholm stay. But most importantly, this is a social hub for the independent traveller. Our guests are awesome, and we work hard to create the perfect social vibe to make it as easy as possible for solo travellers to meet new friends.
Région: Midi PyreneesWe are a retired British couple who spend 8 months each year in our idyllic French retreat surrounded by vines, sunflowers and wild life (deer, wild boar and butterflies etc). We have a guest annex, a pool and 2.5 acres of wooded parkland to enjoy, along with all the maintenance. We would love to have one or two extra pairs of hands for two/three weeks in October to help us prepare for the winter departure and also share our very relaxed lifestyle. Swimming pool, table-tennis, cycling and golf clubs are all available. We need help with varnishing the window frames and shutters, wood stacking, tree pruning and grass cutting. There is no shortage of activity and plenty of time to enjoy.
Région: GaliciaHello! My name is Ana and I'm from Galicia, Spain. I'm 27 and I'm interested in learn more about different languages and cultures. I live with my parents in a small town just near Coruña (12-15 min by bus) and 1h from Santiago de Compostela. There are 3 airports in Galicia: A Coruña (15 min from my home) , Santiago de Compostela (1 hour) and Vigo (2 hours). I lived in France for one year and in England for six months. Now i came back to Spain again and I would like to continue learning english, french, italian, portuguese,... With regard to my family, they are very kind (they are my family!) I love them. My mother works like a social worker and my father works in a high school like as a psycologist. My brother will be away, so he'll not be at home. I've finished my studies and this year i'm going to validate some subjects to update my degree in interior design. If you want to know more about me, my family, our city, the work...i'll be glad to answer all your questions.
Région: LeinsterWE HAVE AN OPENING FROM OCTOBER 20Th approx for a practical, farming- friendly workawayer for two to three weeks to help out with getting the farm winter-ready and paintings windows. We are living on a farm just one hour by bus from Dublin in the foothills of the Wicklow mountains in (South) Co Kildare. We are a family of 7 - five children (13 - 21), and ourselves, along with dogs, cats, ponies, hens and cattle. Our agricultural industries are beef, tillage and forestry, and we farm in an environmentaLly friendly way from a large 18th century house and garden which is open to the public. We live just outside the village of Moone. We have a tennis court, lovely farm walks, bicycles. A couple of km away is the 11th century Kilkea Castle, home to the Dukes of Leinster. A great cycle for the day takes you on a tour of Round Towers and High Crosses, or perhaps take the bus to Dublin or Kilkenny (one of the smallest cities you'll ever see!). The peaceful monastic mountain retreat of Glendalough is 45 minutes by car.
