Area: UlsterI am an American lost in the brilliant life that Donegal has to offer! I live in the country with my 4 horses, pony, and 3 Jack Russell Terrior (dogs), a little bit of heaven to say the least.... I love to host people from all over the world and exchange cultures, so if you want to come to Ireland and see the country come to me for a visit. I will help you have a nice holiday any way I can. My biggest passion in life is and always has been horses. I see them, smell them, feed them, love them. I don't ride very much these days, but like to have people to hold my horses to work on them. I do massage and chiropractic on them, so if this interests you get in touch. I'm hoping to have 2 healthy foals this spring!
Area: Languedoc RoussillonWe are an English family of 4 who operate 2 gites in the beautiful French countryside. 1 hour south of Toulouse and 35 mins from Carcassonne. Help is needed with gardening and general maintenance. The 3 properties (we live in 1 of them) are situated in 3 hectares, with a private pool, a lake, spectacular views of the Pyrennees and very rural, we are 15 mins drive away from the closest town, where young night life is very limited. We have 2 dogs, a Boxer and a Terrier, a handful of chickens. Mums an artist and runs the gites and loves her big vegetable garden, (a great cook too), Dads a builder who needs to work to keep the 2 kids at college! We are a very easy going household.
Area: MontanitaEscaping commercial Europe again around three years ago,... I exchanged my little houseboat in Amsteram, the Netherlands for a small terrain with cabin on a hilltop in Montanita, Ecuador. Two years ago a build my house. An ongoing project that's been open for costommers since a year or so. Success is growing and help is needed :)!... I build everything myself, mostly from recycle materials.
Area: OhioMy husband and I run a pet care facility for dogs and cats. We are in our 50's. We take the dogs out for trail walks on our 4 acres, provide daily care, cleaning up after the pets, and bathing/grooming. They say if you love what you do that you never have to work a day in your life....so we are very happy. While our beautiful spot in the hills is wooded and feels like the country, we are within two miles of major shopping areas. One of the largest parks in the Eastern U.S. with hiking and canoeing begins less than a mile away. Also at the park is a vintage train-if you pay two dollars, you can ride with your bike and then bike back (or ride both ways!) If you like the arts, we have many museums and two famous symphonies within a one hour drive. We are in Akron, 45 minutes drive from Cleveland and Lake Erie and the islands. We have a nice mountain bike to lend and can provide some transportation depending on the business hours too. If you are improving your English speaking, I have a Masters from the Dept. of English from Bowling Green State University in 2001 and as a graduate student have taught Freshman Composition with many students in the ESL program (English as a Second Language). So I won't teach you bad English!
