Région: AndaluciaI am a two years old boy and my parents are a young couple around 40. My mom is a physician and work in a hospital every morning from 8-15 and some evenings she works on the computer. She needs to learn some english. In fact, my english is better than hers :-P My daddy is a nurse and works on an ambulance (I love ambulances and how they sound: nino nino nino...) one or two days a week. He is also a lecturer at the university so he also work on the computer at times. He always speaks to me in english when we are alone. His english is fairly good but I am very clever. I am learning very quick and his english is not good enough for me. Though they seem to be working most of the time, they take turns and they are always wih me. I am with daddy every morning and every other evening. During the weekends, I am with mummy most of the time. I love the evenings, my parents take me out to play with many other children. This year, they want to take me to the nursery so as I can play with other children during the morning and they have some extra time to sort out daily issues. We have an spare room at home and we would like a native english to come and stay with us, look after me and teach me english. My parents and I can teach back spanish. We would like you to feel part of the family :-) Also, there are some spanish academies for foreigners around home.
Région: 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.
Région: UlsterWe are Pete and Anna, living in a traditional Irish cottage with two young children in a very scenic and peaceful part of Donegal overlooking a valley and the Glendowan mountains. We are an easy going family who enjoy travelling and meeting people from other cultures. Pete is a chef and Anna works with Crafts and Design. We have restored the cottage ourselves to a very comfortable standard using traditional methods. The house and barn are heated with wood stoves and we also use a wood-pellet boiler. We intend to install solar panels for water and/or electricity and a wind-turbine sometime in the future. We grow a lot of our own food in the garden and polytunnel.
Région: CaliforniaCome visit the mountainous countryside of North Inland San Diego County! Our little rural town is an hour drive to the city of San Diego, so this location is perfect for those who enjoy a farming community with options to travel into the city within an hour. If you want to Google the location, please look up "Valley Center, California". Southern California is full of many adventures including theme parks, beaches, mountains, desert. hiking and a beautiful climate year round! We have amazing wildlife like roadrunners, eagles, hawks, Wild Turkeys, Quail, Coyotes, among a few. There are many charming and exciting things to do right here in our little country town not to mention the impact of festivals and events in San Diego. We are a small family who chooses to be mainly vegetarian vs. vegan. We prefer to eat a whole food plant based diet, less or no processed or junk foods! We have one child who is 6 years old. We have 2 cats, 1 dog, 2 horses and 18 young chickens who just started laying eggs. We also have a hobby in Astronomy with a small charity for kids where we inspire them to look to the skies and enjoy the planets, moon, galaxies, nebulas, etc. The projects we have on our property can be demanding physically and rewarding through accomplishment and team work. We require volunteers that are physically fit and live a healthy active lifestyle in order to be able to handle the physical demands as well as tolerate hot and cold temperatures. We prefer that those who are unsure of their physical fitness discuss this with us upfront. Our goal is safety first and if you are not living a healthy active lifestyle currently, we are concerned our home projects are not the best choice for you. We strive to live a healthy life style, including a vegetarian healthy diet. Only vegetarian food is provided on our premises and it is a requirement that the volunteers during their stay with us on or off property, refrain from smoking and using any alcohol or drugs. Due to the nature of raising a young impressionable child who looks to role models etc, we ask you to avoid junk food and only display for all residents living here a positive attitude and committed presence. You can stay a short or long time, but if coming short term, must be minimum 6-8 weeks but can stay longer and is more favorable for several months or more. For those choosing a longer stay or for those with construction skills, we can and will arrange for extra income to be earned if you are open to working more than part time for workaway volunteer exchange.
Région: CalvadosThis will be our fourthyear of having Workawayers here to help us, and we are hoping for another great time of meeting interesting people and having the help we need. We are Lin and Geoff, an early retired English couple (60 and 65) who moved to France to renovate a derelict Longère five years ago. We have developed a 2 bedroomed house from part of the building which we live in and a greater part of the rest of the house had been made into two self contained apartments which we rent as B&B accommodation. The Workawayer bedroom and bathroom are finished so you have your own space. The B&Bs have been very busy so far this year with bookings, all of which creates work, cleaning, linen changing, washing and ironing. We offer our guests Table d’Hôte dinner too so we are constantly cooking and entertaining throughout the summer months. Life is busy. Geoff grows dahlias in the summer which will need a lot of prep work to plant and grow. The rest of the garden (6000m2 in total) is laid to grass and lots of pots around the B&B areas and two rockeries, all of which needs constant tending, cutting and strimming. And as well we have a vegetable garden. None of the gardening work is difficult, it's just time consuming. Also there will be some work needed on the rest of building side, renovating and painting the exterior of parts of the house and its outbuildings. So anyone out there ready to do a bit of DIY (generally helping Geoff) but more especially gardening, and/or helping with the B&B please contact us. We have a 3yr old old Border Collie called Fred! He's adorable. We both have a great sense of humour, essential to life. We love any music, especially blues. We are good entertainers and enjoy a large circle of friends. We have had huge success with all our Workawayers for the past three years and hope to continue that success this year. It is essential to have a good sense of humour as laughter plays an important role in our lives. We enjoy what we do and like to involve our Workawayers in our general day to day life, not just as work horses. You would live in with us as family. Although the guidelines set by Workaway is a five hour day for 5 days we generally find our Workawayers are quite willing to work longer than that to get things finished or just to be helpful, so we can normally expect perhaps a 6 hr day generally speaking. Nothing is written in stone with us and we are very flexible. There is Satellite TV in the house both English and French. There is TV in your room. We have internet wireless broadband, Wi-Fi, Skype.
