Area: TuscanyJens and Marjolijn welcome you in the beautiful surroundings of the authentic, yet hardly discovered Garfagnanaregion, in the northwest of Tuscany! Our small campsite is located at an altitude of 600 meters on the edge of the mountain village Coreglia Antelminelli, one of the "Borghi più belli d'Italia'. From the campsite it's a short walk via the ancient arch to the citycenter. Walk through the small, charming streets, take an espresso or caffe latte in one of the bars and enjoy a place where time seems to have stood still! The rustic campsite accommodates 40 tents and five caravans and campers. On the campsite you'll find a small restaurant, which we are operating as a table d'hote, and a bar. In the vicinity of the campsite you can find the village Bagni di Lucca, famous for its thermal baths, and, the medieval town of Barga, with its narrow, sloping streets, small squares and many galeries. The area offers a variety of hiking and mountaineering opportunities. Several parks, including La Grotta del Vento and Il Parco Naturale dell'Orecchiella, are in the vicinity. Lucca is located about 40 minutes by car from the campsite. One hour drive and you are on the sunny beaches of Viareggio and Lido di Camaiore. Also Pisa with its famous Torre Pendente is located one hour away. Florence can be reached easily by car.
Area: EnglandWe are a traditional English country pub in a small village beside the coast in North Devon. We serve real ales, home-made food, and run regular acoustic music nights (with your host on the fiddle), games night and discussion groups (agnostics anonymous with the local vicar), and promote internaional arts events such as Tunde Jgede and Arve Henriksson. We are busy with holiday-makers and residents alike, and the pub is an important part of the community here. Meals are generally provided from the pub kitchen, though we can easily cater for most diets. We are a friendly team here and we welcome new faces. Bill lives at the pub with his three-legged dog, Lucy, and occasionally you may find other family and friends staying with him. We are non-smoking throughout. We have free wi-fi.
Area: Langkawi, Malaysia. Malaysia is the eldest jungle of this globe, dating back something like 130 million years. Although Langkawi is not a snorcheling or diving hot spot - due to sediment rich waters - there are plenty of things to see. Some of this original rain forest is covering the mountains, trekking is a good idea. Birdwatchers come from all over the world to see the many eagles etc. hornbills run riot even downtown. There is a breathtaking ride on a swiss built cable car, an abundance of waterfalls and world heritage parks with spectacular mangrove forests.We are a German family and have been building a traditional wooden Malaysian junk-schooner, the Naga Pelangi (Rainbow Dragon). The boat is built in an ancient building technique, using wooden dowels and caulking bark. This technique is only practiced in the Malay cultural area. It is a dying art. I had a boat of this type built in 1980 and sailed it round the world. This boat is a much bigger version and we want to establish it as a charter vessel in Malaysia. Naga Pelangi is the only boat of her kind sailing in Malaysia. Since November 2010 the boat is sailing and now stationed in Langkawi, an island group on the West coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Here we are mostly on standby and waiting for charterwork. We do maintenance work, sanding, varnishing, painting, standard upkeep and volunteers can experience life on a traditional wooden sailing boat in a beautiful tropical setting. We are offering 2 - 4 places for people to help us maintain and sail this historical vessel. If you have skills like beeing an electrician, a carpenter or a mechanic, we will definitely be most happy to show you how a wooden boat sails and feels in return for your help. No sailing skills required, but a will to work and an ability and a liking for manual labour. Volunteers should be physically fit and trained - no couch potatoes! We expect our volunteers to share in cost of living if no money is coming in through charter and charge 10,- USD/day per person. We are currently back in Langkawi after some cruising around the islands. Since it takes a while to get familiar on a boat, we do not encourage people to come if they only want to come for a week or two. After getting to know each other, we expect our helpers to stay several weeks or even months. I am traveling to Germany in July and will be back in August / September. Until then, The boat is looked after by a team of workawayers and there is no opportunity for helpers during that time.
Area: Veliko Tarnovo/Gorna OryahovitsaWe are a lively and sociable couple who have lived in Bulgaria for over 5 years after emigrating from the UK. We have a 5 acre plot of land that needs work and can offer accommodation to volunteers in a 2 bed roomed self contained bungalow. Or in our own home. Currently we have 2 horses, 2 dogs and 3 cats, some poultry, 2 friendly rabbits plus we do breed pigs and raise them for the table. We now have 2 beautiful goats and hope to produce goats milk and cheeses later in the year after their kids have been born. We need help with some small building and maintenance projects, gardening (organically), tree pruning and animal care etc. During some summer months we could do with some help to harvest produce from the garden and also for haymaking etc. Some larger projects are in the pipelines for 2014 and we'd be very interesting in hosting volunteers with experience in natural building. We can offer archery lessons (traditional English long bows). Please note archery will only be available if we have the time. We enjoy a fairly healthy diet, a good laugh and the occasional beer with wonderful home cooked and produced food. Would you like to learn more about cooking or rural living while helping us a few hours a day in return for board and lodging? I love to cook and try new recipes, we also make jams and preserve foods and brew rakia (Bulgarian Brandy). Please note that we are now NON smokers and eat meat. We try to recycle and re-use what we can and produce as little waste as possible. We are trying hard to use less power, water and packaged products and hope that any volunteers would try and live by the same standards when they are here. Part of our use less lifestyle means we will be reinstating composting toilets and solar showers in 2014. We would prefer volunteers who are able to work on their own initiative and do not need constant supervision. Experienced equestrian volunteers are welcome too as our 2 Bulgarian ponies are still being re-educated for riding using more natural methods. Currently we are looking for motivated, enthusiastic people to come and help with animal care, fencing, building a road and some land clearance. We have lots of plans this year and also hope to build a new pig house and pen, shelter for the horses and who knows what else! Your input, ideas and experiences are welcomed as we try to become more self sufficient and ecologically friendly. Please note we do NOT supply alcohol/tobacco products or luxury items but you may bring/supply your own. We now have broadband and a wifi connection Also available is a 1 acre landshare for those who'd truly like to experience Bulgarian rural life for at least 6 months to a year.
