Área: EnglandDoggie Training and general help required in small, friendly household, West Yorkshire. We are a family of four, I Monika, my partner Pete and our two doggies "babies" Alfie and Millie! We discovered workaway through my Son and his friend who spent a year touring the world volunteering with the workaway scheme having a fabulous time so ,after hearing their adventures we decided it would be ideal for us to sign up as hosts ourselves. We are easy going, relaxed, down to earth folk who like nothing more than to socialize with interesting people. We would like to open our doors to workawayers not just for help with our "babies" and in the home, but also to take part in a cultural exchange and to meet new people. We both work full time, on a shift basis, so we need volunteers who are motivated and at times can work under their own initiative. Like most households there is not a lot to be done here, but we are receptive to new ideas and will try to adapt tasks to your individual skills.

Área: Rhode IslandOlder "semi retired" woman, RN, physically fit, living on 2.5 acres of wooded land, south of Providence, close to the University of Rhode Island and beaches. I go between being a volunteer and visiting other hosts worldwide and have enjoyed volunteers on a previous project, back in the '80's, building a women's retreat in Vieques, Puerto Rico, without the aid of such a wonderful website. I'm offering a tentsite or room in my comfortable home, where I also rent out a small apt., Everything is pretty straight forward, sometimes I have a paying housemate.
Área: Midi-PyrénéesWe share our life between Paris and this authentic French village. I live with 3 men in Paris, two boys 20 and 15 and their daddy...and 3 horses and a dog... We have recently bought this old house along the Viaur River which flows continuously and is not polluted...it is like a natural swimming pool. The house is in the village with many accommodation places, 2 bars, 3 restaurants, a pizza restaurant, 2 food markets, a pharmacy, post office, library, and a hardware store. I buy my organic vegetables at the local open market. Our home is in a very historic area, just few minutes from Najac, Saint Antonin, Cordes sur Ciel, Albi and Villefranche de Rouergue. After just a few minutes walking, you are in a wonderful nature area ...if you like old stone buildings or wild nature you will love our place.
