Area: AucklandUpdate 27/08/2014: We are currently looking for a helper for Jan 2015 onwards. Please get in touch if you would like to volunteer we will try to accommodate you if we can. We really appreciate your interest and wish you safe and happy adventures.... Please note: We are happy to consider shorter stays, but we would really prefer someone who can stay 2 or 3 months - and upwards. Thank you :-) ----------------------------------------- We are a well travelled, educated, happy and friendly family with 3 kids living in a semi-rural part of beautiful Waiheke Island, New Zealand. Waiheke Island is just 45 minutes ferry ride from Auckland City - but it is a "world away" from city life with fantastic beaches, bush walks, great cafes (and awesome coffee!), friendly locals and much more! Our property is surrounded by farm land, trees and a nature reserve and is 15 minutes walk to world-class Palm Beach for excellent swimming / walks & lots of fresh air! See the pictures we've posted of Waiheke (note these are not all taken from our property!) We are seeking a friendly, happy responsible girl (minimum 1 month - longer preferred) who speaks good English to assist us with house duties / looking after our kids. Our kids are Rudolf Steiner educated 2, 5 and 6 yrs of age, fun and creative and (mostly!) well behaved! They would like to hang out with someone who is fun and relaxed who can enjoy extended playtimes with them, drawing, playing on the trampoline, playing with toys, singing, dancing story time etc - while their mum works (in massage) and their Dad works in the studio located on the property (I run a graphic and webdesign business so if you have experience/skills in this area - please make that clear as there may be some office work available on a P/T basis - subject to discussion!)

Area: Emilia–Romagna================================================ We are sorry but at the moment we cannost host any workawayer ================================================ Our B&B is a family business situated in Fanano (MO), part of the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano near Bologne and Modena. We are family of 4 people, Patrizia, the mom, is always present in the Bed and Breakfast. With the help of the family (Argio, the father, Emilio and Enrico, the sons) and of the neighbour (Caio), the B&B became a very colorful and happy place. Fanano is a small and very charatcteristic old town with many stone houses, like the B&B. However, in the family there is an international atmosphere. Patrizia is turist guide, Argio a travel agent, Enrico and Emilio did the Erasmus as student and Emilio has also been a workwayer until May and now is working in Germany. Living in the B&B is also for us as a working holiday, but is always full of pleasures and also the hosts are happy of this atmospshere. The B&B is situated in front of a small river and from Fanano there are many possible trekking trails all over the Apennines. In the winter there is the opportunity to sky and in summer to fish, even in front of the house, and to ride the bicycle in very beautifull and wild places. We have been in Fanano for more than 30 years and now all the town is like a big family, we have many friends of all the ages and there's always the opportunity to enjoy the day and also the night.
