Honestly, were it that I had some overly romantic tale, when actually, I simply found myself here more or less through happenstance. In 2009 I came to "check up" on my Brother-in-Law who built his dream retirement home here. As it turns out my parents had also been to Ecuador and my mother really loved the country and seemed to thrive when she was here. In the ensuing few years we found dad in need of round the clock heath care so we packed him up and moved him to San Lorenzo, Manabi Ecuador. I initially took a leave of absence from my job and my sister and I agreed to take turns providing family support. As with many things in life, the more time I spent here the busier I became helping to run our little family construction and import/export businesses. So, here I am trying to have some fun and hoping to provide a wonderful vacation experience so others will also fall in love with this small impossibly beautiful country.
Région: Salt Spring Island, British ColumbiaHi - My name is Moray and I used to run a small carriage business but now have only 2 horses for trail riding. I am a single mother whose children have left the home. I am also a elementary school teacher. We run a community garden at the school that requires alot of help to mentor the children as a mentor and monitor the work/activities of the children. The garden program relies heavily on volunteer hours to help the teachers with their large classes. So you see there is a lot of work that piles up as I try and plow through it on my own. I would very much appreciate a workawayer that would like to spend some time with the horses and also helping children in class and in the garden.
Région: BrandenburgHi, we are Rike and Henning and we are running a house where some families and/or single persons live permanent and some only from time to time. We also have an almost two year old daughter, Freya. As we just started this project in the end of 2011, there´s of course still a lot to do. Any help is welcome with the garden, fruit trees, building the pottery and workshop, all kinds of jobs around the buildings. Help in house and kitchen or being nanny for our daughter will also be welcome. We live in a quiet and remote area in the North of Germany, between Berlin and the Baltic Sea in beautiful countryside full of hills and lakes. Languages spoken are English and German. We like to help you learn German, as far as this can be involved into the other activities. And we love to meet new people from all over the world. You can also learn treeclimbing, go kayaking on one of the endless number of lakes around, do cycling trips or just sit at the firepit in the evenings under a nice starfield far away from any city lights. As we are frequently going to Berlin you dont even need to miss this:) Rike is a potter and Henning works as an industrial climber and arborist, mainly in Berlin. We would be happy to hear from you!
