In summer we live in a little house near the project of organic garden of vegetable, with a river to take a cold bath in the morning to wake up, and more in nature. During the auttum and winter we live in Orxeta, in the center of village (700 villagers). The orange trees are near the village, 10 minutes walking (the farest place). We love learn about everything, languages, music, different skills.... We love music, play guitar, piano, drums, achordeon.... and listen it. I enjoy cooking. We are not vegetarian but we don't eat some much meat and fish. We are happy to give you the welcome to our house!!!!! Alicia y yo (Enric) vivimos en un pequeño pueblo llamado Orxeta, en la comarca de la Marina Baixa, en Alacant. Yo me dedico a cuidar de los árboles que mi abuelo me dejó (sobretodo Naranjos y limoneros) trabajando de manera ecológica y respetuosa y vendiendo la producción en pequeñas cooperativas y directamente al que las consume. Entre semana paso casi todo el día haciendo trabajos en la huerta, cuidando de las gallinas, ayudando a otros amigos con sus proyectos... En el valle formamos una comunidad rural de jóvenes dispersa, en la cual cada uno tiene su casa y su proyecto, e intentamos coordinarnos para ayudarnos entre nosotros y compartir tiempo juntos. Los proyectos que existen en el valle: - Agricultura ecológica de hortalizas- - Agricultura ecológica cítricos y frutales - Trekking - Repostería ecologica - Panadería ecológica - Tratamientos de salud orientales. - Visitas escolares en la naturaleza (en proceso) Si vienes y puedes visitar y experimentar estos proyectos. Ahora mismo, estoy centrado en el diseño y creación de bosques de alimentos, trabajando en 3 proyectos diferentes. En verano vivimos en Sella en una pequeña casita cerca del proyecto de huerta ecológica de hortaliza, en el campo, cerca de un río donde tomar un baño frío por la mañana y cuando aprieta el calor. En otoño e invierno vivimos en el Orxeta, en el centro del pueblo (de unos 700 habitantes). El lugar de trabajo está cerca de la casa y se puede ir caminando (máximo 10min.) Nos encanta aprender cosas nuevas, idiomas, musica y más cosas de la vida! Nos apasiona la música y tocar la guitarra, el piano, percusiones.... Me gusta mucho cocinar y aunque no somos vegetarianos no comemos mucha carne ni pescado. Nos encantará acogeros en nuestra casa!!
Area: AucklandAfter becoming hooked on hosting and meeting lots of CouchSurfers I thought that WorkAway may be a better way to host - by getting my daily tasks done quicker and then being available to chill out, chat, show you around and potentially have some cool adventures!!! After all, I am a traveler as well and I understand that you are here to experience Auckland and enjoy it rather than work it away in some secluded place. I want to get to know you, teach you a few things, work together, have fun and enjoy each other’s company. :::WHAT I CAN OFFER YOU::: -- Accommodation -- Food -- Free WiFi Internet -- Computer -- Work experience -- Learning -- Helping you out with Local Knowledge -- Showing you around -- Chatting -- Deep and Meaningful Conversations -- Chilling -- Having a few Drinks -- Having Fun Depending on when you are here I can possibly take you: -- Mt Biking -- Rally Racing -- Boating (Fishing, WakeBoarding etc) -- Snowboarding -- Camping -- Going Out -- Other Fun Activities or events that come up Please note that I am flexible and very willing to give you my time when you are in town, but please understand that showing you around or doing something fun etc does use fuel so I would appreciate a contribution for fuel used while driving for you : ) :::TIME WORKING PER DAY::: You are not obliged to work anymore than an average of 4.5 hours a day. I hope we can just work in with each other’s schedules to offer a fairly flexible work environment. :::TYPE OF PEOPLE I WANT TO HOST::: Fun, easy going, keen to learn, loving life, open, wanting to meet people, someone that I can connect with and have in-depth conversations with. Someone who is different and who wont settle to the standard life that society seems to dictate to us. :::LENGTH OF STAY::: Because this is more about meeting people and having new experiences, I believe that 2-4 days is a good amount to time to start with in regards to getting to know each other, getting some work done and showing you around. :::FOOD (Available for you to cook/make)::: Breakfast – Toast and Eggs or Oats Lunch – Bread, Tomato, Lettuce or Soup Dinner – Meat or Pasta with either Salad or Mixed Vegetables :::ABOUT ME::: Loving life and living the extraordinary dream. Recently arrived back from traveling South America (read my realizations below) Adventurous, Gentle, Self Motivated, Energetic, Keen to try Anything, Trustworthy, Honest. Interested in most things from Cooking to Rally Car Racing to Dancing to Spirituality to Personal Growth to a balanced healthy life. I enjoy great conversations and anything Outdoors or Practical. During my last trip I came to the realization that most of my drive for travel is more about the people I meet and the experiences and adventures we share rather than the sights I see. So what better way to continue my developing journey than to host and meet travelers in my home town before I head off overseas again. I believe we should all be doing what we love and aim for the ultimate lifestyle of being flexible while enjoying life and growing from it. My interests Include: Snowboarding, Learning/Growing/Developing, Alternative Ways to Living and Thinking, Boating, Rally Racing, WakeBoarding, Dancing (Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Modern Jive), Travel, Spirituality, Scuba Diving, Meeting People, Healthy Living, Business, Love, People, Different Views and Outlooks on Life, Listening to Music, Documentaries, Technology, Karaoke, Conversations, Nature, Free Hugs, Road Trips, Hiking, Camping, Fishing, Adventure, Cooking. :
Area: South of Thailand on the small islands in Andaman Sea+++Please note that we can welcome all of Volunteer only in Friday+++ We are Anke (Netherlands) and Aoi (Thailand) and we own a piece of land on the island Ko Lanta in the south of Thailand. We've been working hard for the past three years to start our project. The land is slowly turning into a little village and natural farm. So far we took care of clean water supply and electricity, we've build 3 adobe houses, two compost toilets and a community area with a little dormitory for volunteers, a kitchen, and an open air shower. In our attempt to supply in most of our needs we are collecting and planting more and more local foods and materials, like fruit trees, herbs, vegetables, rice and bamboo. Since we are able to live simple and sustainable on an island where local life and tourism come together, we have the opportunity to share and exchange with people from all over the world. You are welcome to join us as a volunteer. Volunteers can come and work with us in exchange the knowledge. We work 4 hours a day, two days a week off. The work involves, among others: weeding, planting, making earthen bricks, building, painting and taking care of visitors. Volunteers are asked to stay for minimum a week. A few examples of what we are trying to do is making food and drinks from the garden for ourselves and for visitors, making our own utensils and furniture with clay, wood and bamboo, making herbal health products for our own natural spa and teaching all kinds of workshops. We are open to your ideas! If you tell us the exact date and period that you want to come, you could have more chance to join our team.
