Area: Languedoc RoussillonI would like to invite you to spend some time in this magnificent area in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The mount 'Canigou' seems planted at the edg of my garden,2874 m above the sealevel and sacred for all Catalans. Looking on Prades as from a balkony,a pleasant house to live. Every 23th of June 'la trobada' assembles Catalans from the north as from the south (Spain), a huge fire is made on top and brought down to multiples towns and villages where there's music and dancing celebrating summer solstice. While staying at my place I'd love you to discover all this, easy and so cheap ( for 1 euro one way ride on bus or train) trough the whole department! I am planning the construction of a water-bassin for wich I could use some good help,for this job there will be 'extras'. Otherwise some gardening, mending the acces to the site, putting up a fence, install an irrigation system(drip), vetg garden... Exceptionaly I shall receive two people at the time for the water-bassin project (3 weeks max.), probably in May-June. Accomodation in the house or tent, according to what's available.
Area: tamparuli, sabahGreetings from "The Land Below The Wind" - Sabah, Malaysia's North Borneo. My name is Tina, a local of Kota Kinabalu , and my Australian husband Daniel have settled in a beautiful valley around 250 meters above sea level with our pets and we would like to invite you to experience rural living in the tropics. Located approximately 40km North of Kota Kinabalu just an hour’s drive from Kota Kinabalu International Airport. We live nearby very peaceful village and our neighbour about 1km away. The nearest town is Tamparuli which is around 5.5km from the property. Tamparuli town is situated along the way to UNESCO world heritage listed Mt Kinabalu National Park, the town is also well known for its big suspension foot bridge - there's even a popular song about it!... on every Wednesday, indigenous farmers and traders gather at the "Tamu" where visitors come to shop for local produce, rural residents from the hills do their weekly shopping and meet up under the bright umbrellas and raintrees...it certainly is very colourful scene. Tuaran beach is roughly 20km from town and Kiulu white water rafting less than 20min away. Our property is surrounded by rubber trees and secondary jungle. We are currently building up a 10acre fruit orchard, which primarily consists of the king of fruits durian. Other tropical fruit trees include; tarap, mango, rambutan,watermelon pineapples and many other fun things.we have just started a vege patch which is starting to look promising. We have just started phase 2 of our project which is building a guesthouse.we hope to have the bulk of the work done by october 2014.Local contractors are working at our place daily but the serenity wont be affected too badly as we are doing minimal earthworks and heavy construction.We dont ask volunteers to work onsite due to safety issues, theres more than enough other supporting work to do in anycase! If you enjoy the heat, peace and outdoor work then our property is perfect Workaway holiday for you!

Area: Peonia,Central macedonia, Mountain Paiko, North of ThessalonikiHallo friends from around the world, I am Tania and live together with my family in main land of Greece. I came back here after traveling and living in other countries ,like the Netherlands, Tsechoslovakia, for shorter time in Nepal, India, Australia and few more. The point is that for me it became necessary to settle somewhere... and Paiko Mountain in central Macedonia in Greece is the right place. It feels living completely in the nature but the culture is just around the corner. Thessaloniki, the international airport and the Aegean sea is an hour drive from Goumenissa. And at the same time our 'homeland' is seemingly lost in the mountains. After ten years of easy going and family creating, Antonis and I feel that we should open our doors and share that what we most appreciate, "Life in nature"... I believe that sometimes in our life we need to stop for a while and reconsider... so to appreciate even more that what we already have accomplished or to find the positive energy to start afresh in to new adventures. 20/10/2012 What is most important probably to know about us is that...Antonis and I are in Love with MOUNT PAIKO, each one of us for our own reason. To dwell and exist here is a blessing. It would make it possibly even better if people could come together here and learn and teach things to each other...like...Permaculture, General Gardening, Self-Sustainability , Meditation, Conscious Positive Thinking, Herbaling, and more kinds of 'Human Living'. I would for example love to have families with children coming over, to collect aubergines and peppers to bake them on open fire as we use to do, peal them put them in jars in oil and take them back home. While the children could participate and play around. Or to go out all together to collect seasonal herbs or wild green salads.Or in May collect cherries to make a jam or dry for the winter. Especially Greek people need to rediscover the value of there home land and the possibilities of living closer to nature. Things like permaculture do a lot of good, and there are young people that are questioning and searching for solutions. We wish to be a part of it... I hope in the coming months to make it possible for more people to stay with us, so that we will have more company, exchange, communication... to bring the world to our place. And also to make it possible for the ones that will stay with us to find space and time to relax, reconsider ... to escape for a while from the wide world. You are welcome and needed to help, we are happy to get also any advise you may have from your own experience, so if you think you could be of any assistance send us a note ... The sooner the better! Wish you all good travels and great experiences. Greetings from Beautiful and 'aromatic' Greece, Tania and family.
