Area: BavariaHallo traveller, I would like to invite you to Germany. I´m married and I have two children (a 17 year old girl and a 19 year old boy). My family and I, we live near the mountains, between Munich and Salzburg. We are inbetween lake Chiemsee and the mountain "Kampenwand". It`s a beautiful area. We would like, that you live here in our house, teaching us English. You should be able to cook twice a week for us. You have your own room in the second floor of our house. You can go to the next city Rosenheim by bus. It`s about twenty minutes by car.
Area: SkagafjörðurWe are farmers on a mixed farm in the north of Iceland 15km from Sauðárkrókur. We have 3 boys born 2008, 2009 and 2014. The older two go to kindergarten from 8-16, mon-fri. Mostly we are a dairy farm. We have 34 cows and about 40 female calves growing up to be milking cows. We milk the cows twice a day. Most often at 8 in the morning and at 19 in the evening. We can´t tell an accurate time because there can always something happen to disturb that. F.x. some animals on a wrong side of a fence or heymaking with a possible rain in the evening or the day after. From may/june til sept/okt the cows are outside, only taken to the stable to milk them. We have 170 sheep. From nov-mai we have them in a stable to make them pregnant, keep them safe during the pregnancy and giving birth. After they give birth they go out. In june they go to the mountains and in september we gather them again because we can have snow in the mountains and also to take the lambs to the slaugther house. We have around 40 horses. From jan - april we have horses in stable and train young horses and competition horses. In may or june we shoe our riding horses, around 10-20 horses, sometimes we have young horses then to if we have time. They are taken of shoes again in okt/nov and most of them are outside until next may/june.

Area: Midi PyreneesHi, We are a young (26 and 28) French/English couple. I am Jenny, Im English and arrived in France for work in 2005, met Jeremy and ended up staying. We decided to settle in the Gers so about a year ago we looked and found an old barn to renovate. We are both interested in eco building methods so are using many of these (wherever possible) throughout the renovation. Whilst we are renovating we have been lucky enough to be able to rent the house next door to our barns, so we can live on site, whilst also being able to have the comforts of a finished house. We have 3 very friendly cats and a few chickens (for eggs and eating). We also have a small vegetable patch which gets a bit bigger each year. In the summer we eat a lot of our own vegetables, and have a lot of BBQs. We live in a small quiet village, 5km from a small town. The town has all facilities such as restaurants and shops, takeaway, cinema, car rental.. There is also a race track (cars and motorbikes) and a small airfield in the town. In the summer there are local fetes which have displays of 'course landaises'. We are on the edge of the Armagnac area, so on your days off you could also go wine or armagnac tasting. Being a French/English couple we are happy to speak either language, depending on your preference.
