Area: Wallonie (Hainaut)Hello, I am a 42 years old face and bodypainter living in the charming village of Feluy. I live one week on my own, one week with my children aged 8 and 7. My daughter has school in English 2 days/week. I live in an old house in the center of the village. I work at home doing costumes, props and prosthetics for a new project in street performance. I have no workshop in the house, so it is often quite messy here ;-) The kids have 2 lovely rats. Feluy is 40 km south from Brussels (it takes a 25 min bus to Nivelles and then a 30 min train to get to the capital.) It is a old village with a medieval castle and an old canal, with some ramblers and cyclists on weekends. There isn't pretty much to visit, but the countryside around is beautiful. There is a bus stop near the house. I can give a ride to Nivelles station when needed.

Area: Gili Meno, IndonesiaWelcome to our new home! In August 2014, The Hostel opened its doors after five months of building work by hardworking locals and volunteers, many of which have been from Workaway. We are Gili Meno’s first and only beachfront hostel, situated on Meno’s eastern beach right in front of the islands prime snorkelling spot. Gili Meno is a tiny, tropical coral island one hour speed boat ride east of Bali. It is the smallest of the Gili Islands which makes it delicate and resources somewhat precious. We are looking at ways to promote sustainability for the long term future of the island. We need to find ways to harvest rainwater, reuse the grey water in the garden, grow organic food, compost all the organic waste, keep the beaches clean and educate our visitors protect the coral reefs leaving shells and coral in place. When we have successful methods to do all this we can promote useful practices to the children at the local school and any locals that are interested. We need your ideas,education, experience and energy to do this. We are looking for an enthusiastic team of volunteers to help us develop our eco practices as well as in the day-to-day running of the hostel. There are always new projects going on and we’d love you to come and make a difference and make our place even more special.
