Area: East Gippsland, VictoriaI live in beautiful, East Gippsland, Victoria, in the small town of Orbost, halfway between Melbourne and Canberra, and on the highway to Sydney. (Melbourne is 4 to 5 hours away by car, longer by bus. Canberra likewise. Sydney is about 8 by car, longer by bus.) Orbost is close to the beach, mountains, national parks, walking and bike tracks, and caves. It truly is a glorious little place. We are driving distance to some other beautiful areas. I moved here, mid 2012, as local minister but a large part of my work is as a comunity development worker in some remote mountainous villages ... Again, in beautiful country. I appreciate travel companions. I frequently travel amongst part of the lovely Snowy Mountains, and volunteers may have the chance to see some amazing places- often in parts of the world few usual tourists would go, especially in the regional national parks. My garden used to be a showplace, but is now rather overgrown. It has potential. I envision that part of it could become an open garden, a place of peace and reflection for my community. My house and garden back onto the church grounds, so there is potential for what I have here to be a part of the bigger whole. I am raising hens at present... I enjoy watching their antics. Autumn is a lovely time here, as the colour of the trees change... There are regular public buses to the beaches, so if you don't have a car, we can work something out. Orbost is accessible by public transport. There is none in town though, so we walk, or I drive us. Still we are talking small town here, so distance is not great. Life gets hectic here at times, but there are always interesting things to do and see, and people to meet... Even in my own job sphere you will meet fun and quirky people. You would be most welcome to come... Help out... Explore... Have fun.... Although I am new to this program, I have had experience in Helpx, and in couch-surfing. I do not offer second year visa work. Sorry. It is winter now. It will be cold. I have warm bedding however. It will be too cold to swim at the beach. Please note. Orbost is too far away from Melbourne to go exploring or shopping in Melbourne, and then back on the same day. Please don't suggest this as a possibility.
Area: EnglandNestled in the heart of the Mendips, in the Somerset countryside, we share our 2.5 acre smallholding with 2 crazy dogs, an equally crazy cat, and a small flock of Portland sheep. As well as keeping animals we grow our favourite veg and salads and are working hard to set up a small scale flower farm growing gorgeous seasonal flowers for weddings, events and just generally to bring joy to the world. We love being able to work the land, look after it, and would really welcome hands-on help with all the day-to-day jobs involved!
Area: Provence Alpes AzurWe are a franco-american family living in the Alps, our two children are aged 4 and 10. Lori works from home as a translator, and also travels quite often for her work. Fabien is a SAHD. Our home is located in a beautiful area in the southern Alps at 1000m elevation, near lac de Castillon. Our property borders two rivers, the Verdon and the Ivoire. We have a huge yard and there are many tourism opportunities nearby, although we are somewhat isolated with no neighbors or amenities within a 6km radius. It is easy to get here by train from Nice or Digne les Bains (our home overlooks the tourist train station,). We have two guest rooms in the main house. Things to do in the immediate area include hiking, swimming, fishing, boating, cycling, archery. There are great opportunities for day/weekend trips to places like Digne les Bains, Annot, Entrevaux, Puget-Theniers, Nice... travelling on the small tourist train that departs from the station right by the house (4 stops/day). The nearest village is 6 km away, population approx 550. The lake is about 8 km away, we are also not far from Castellane. We speak mostly French at home, with a little English here and there. If you want to improve your French, you will definitely have the opportunity to do so! After our 3 workaway experiences in the summer of 2013, we have realized that we prefer hosting workawayers with at least some French language skills, due to the nature of the projects we have, we found it was important to be able to communicate efficiently, and Lori is really the only English speaker in our household, she isn't always available to translate ;-)
Area:We are a family with two kids living in Ljubljana. Searching for someone to stay with us and practice French/English language with our kids, mostly Lana (she will be 9 years old) and Maks (he will be 13 years old) during summer holidays July/August for 4 weeks. Lana is attending French school, she speaks French fluently. Maks is in primary school seventh grade, he is learning Italian and English. They are funny and sweet, go along with other people well. If you can handle two kids this will be just holidays.
