Area: Buenos AiresSORRY - CAN'T TAKE WORAWAYERS TILL FEBRUARY 2014 - THANKS I'm a 60 y.o. retired engineer and travelled man. I run 2 small guesthouses (not hostels) for foreign visitors who come to Buenos Aires as tourists but also want to know about our culture & way of life. Both houses are old rustic character italian style... and they need cleaning and some maintenance. As I´m one of the few in BA, so many workawayers write me. To don't lose your/my time please write me ONLY if you - ... have a real plan with aprox. dates to come; - ... are older than 25; - ... have a previous experience as workawayer; - ... speak enough Spanish, at least to go to the laundry or shopping; - ... are able to do homework or duties (... this is not coachsurfing). I can take ONE workawayer for a couple of weeks, according with the dates I will have a room free, so I cannot tell you to much time in advance if I can take you or not. NOTICE: Some workawayers asked me to come but they didn´t appear. This made me to lose the chance to rent that room. That's why now I also ask workawayers to make a booking deposit ($30) as all normal guests. Once here, I will pay it back. Thanks to understand...
Area: AndaluciaWe are a family of three: myself, my husband and our daughter. We also have a very friendly elderly cocker spaniel and three cats living here too! I am Irish, Thierry is French and we have set up this small yurt bed and breakfast business in the mountains of southern Spain because we love the area. We aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible and are always interested in trying out new ecological techniques to improve our business. We love meeting new people and cooking and entertaining.
Area: New South Wales, Forster/Tuncurry HinterlandHi Workawayer's, I'm Karen, Good English please because I like to have fun interacting with you. Plenty of work at the moment pulling out Lantana ( a plant). Boring house work is kept for rainy days. I live on 12 Acres of real (native) Australian Bush with winding tracks and Rainforest at the creek. It contains a few rare native plants and there lots of different ferns, palms, rainforest plants, vines and very tall gum trees. The creek has natural beauty even when it is dry. I'm a registered wildlife carer and conservationist and my property is classed as "land for wildlife" One of my French backpackers has come back 3 times because she says my place is the best experience in all of Australia. I'm proud of that. Only one in New Zealand better. The wildlife is abundent because I know how to keep it how they like it. I have a certificate 3 in Conservation and land management, also cert2 in Horticulture. I have 2 hand raised Wallabys and 1 Kangaroo that are released but still live here and bounce into the house every day for some oats and carrots. The Kangaroo loves a cuddle! At the moment I'm raising a Paddy Mellon (small wallaby) very cute! Every morning and afternoon the wild Wallabies and Paddymellons feed on the grass and the birds and frogs are defending. In the hot weather the Eastern Water Dragons and Land Mullets lay about on logs soaking up the sun. They have great characters and sometimes I feed them to keep them friendly. Every night Paralka the possum turns up for a feed, usually with a baby in her pouch or on her back. I renovated a site office and turned it into a home to live in. A shipping container provides work shop and storage. And a second container has been turned into clean, comfortable guest accomidation but there is no heating or cooling, so you have be tough and live within the elements. My backpackers are allowed one square foot of wall space to leave there international mark. This property is totally self sufficient which means there are no phone cables, no power lines and no water pipes........a "stand alone" solar system provides electricity, water from tanks and mobile phone and wireless Internet have great reception. BRILLIANT! Experience with manual labor is preferred but not essential. The work is hard but rewarding. The animals you might find here are: Kangaroos Wallabies Paddymelons Koalas Water Dragons Land Mullets Goannas Bandicoots Snakes Ticks Leaches and heaps more. PLEASE DON'T APLY IF YOUR NOT INTO HARD WORK OR CREEPY CRAWLIES!! I only take people for short stays 7-10 days. I can pick you up from Taree train station, or the Greyhound Bus stops at Nabiac. If you have your own car it's only 20 minuets to the beautiful beaches of Forster, or you can come with me into town on a day off. PLEASE NOTE: I only provide 3 meals a day, so if you want anything to snack on between meals or alcohol they are at your own expense. Contact me for any questions, And please include your private email address. Cheers, Karen.
Area: LimousinWe are Mike and Audrey, a retired couple living in Central France. We are very much self supporting and we love gardening (all organic), bee keeping, fishing and nature in general. English is our first language but we can also get by very well in French, without calling ourselves fluent. We are active in the local music scene, both amongst the English community and also the French traditional music culture.. As we are getting older, we are struggling to keep up to date with about an acre of garden, and two small fishing lakes, and would be happy for someone to give us a hand to manage them.
