Area: South SardiniaHi everyone, I'm Andrea, I'm 27 years old and I live in a small village in the South of Sardinia. Here, I run a bar with my family. My daily activities are dealing with the customers, running the bar and cleaning it. My bar is provided with a kitchen, where we prepare meals( seafood, meat and fast-food mainly) for the customers. The main duties of the future workaway guy will be: helping run the bar and cleaning it, giving a hand in the kitchen when needed and helping cleaning it. At home I have 5 pets, 3 cats and 2 dogs, so another task will be to take care of them.
Area: New South WalesHi There. I am unable to host till mid November. Going around the world. I'm Adrienne, an easy going person with good values and morals. I am well travelled and enjoy hosting interesting guests. I live on one acre of land, large house and garden, in a quiet suburb. I live alone most of the time and would love some help tiding up the garden. No heavy work. Probably 3 hours a day work required. I have 2 chickens that adore me. I am in the process of getting ready to sell the house. I have a great pool and spa, so chill out time in the summer heat is a must. I do smoke but never inside the house. I work at different hospitals as an anaesthetic nurse. The bus stop is 30-40 min walk or 3 min drive from my house. The bus can get you to the train station. From there it is one hour by train to the city of Sydney. I am able to host a maximum of 2 people for one week. I am a true Piscean: Imaginative and sensitive; Compassionate and kind; Selfless and unworldly; Intuitive and sympathetic. (Chinese horoscope - I am a Dragon).
Area: EnglandWe have a 20 acre smallholding in north Northumberland, about an hour north of Newcastle and an hour and a half to Edinburgh. My husband and I have been renovating and extending a cottage which is now just about finished and there is also a bungalow here where our daughter lives with her 2 year old son and baby daughter. I am a supply teacher and our daughter is also a teacher but is on maternity leave at present. My husband is a retired teacher and has done most of the building/renovation work on the cottage. We have 4 cows and their calves, 3 sheep (in lamb we hope) and several hens as well as 2 cats and we also have a polytunnel where we grow lots of our vegetables. We are trying to make a garden as when we came here there was no garden at all but obviously plenty of space and scope for one. We have been spending most of our time on building and getting the fields into shape during the past couple of years, but we also enjoy cycling, mountain biking, walking. My daughter and I also do basketry as a hobby and my husband would be very pleased to show anyone how to do car maintenance, welding, carpentry etc etc!
Area: Island of Kea, Cyclades, Greece.I am a general practitioner living on a Greek island, Kea. I live with my wife and I have two children who are students and visit us occasionally. I run my own private surgery in the capital of the island for twenty years now. I love communicating, meeting new people and I am always interested in learning new things. As a family we like to take long walks, go swimming, play board games and sometimes cultivating our garden. Our house is cosy, with a lovely view. Furthermore, my wife's cooking is famous for its taste! I have visited Norway, I liked it a lot and I would like to spend some years living and working there. I fing Norwegian culture very interesting. I have been taking Norwegian language courses for 1 year but I need to practice speaking, so I hope you could help me!
Area: Infiesto (4km), Asturias, SpainWe need help from February or March 2015. At Fontebona we try to live as natural and self-sustaining as possible. We have the intention to set up a natural camp-site or a retreat centre for nature lovers. Fontebona is a beautiful place. It's just that our mini natural paradise still needs quite some fine-tuning. That's where you come in. Who are we looking for? The helpers (max. 2) we are looking for should be, like us, motivated to dare to pioneer and be prepared to live according to a low standard of living. We are looking for helpers that respect our way of life, have a great love for nature, are not afraid in the dark nor afraid of some dirt, and enjoy working outside. Enjoyed nature as a child already? That must mean you will find Fontebona wonderful. We ask you to work with us 25 hours a week. We ask you to bring your own workclothes and rainwear. We prefer people that already have some working experience, and run their own home. Helpers with working experience in forestry or horticulture and also (technical) odd-job (wo)man are very welcome. Can you combine that with a positive, creative and pro-active attitude? Then you're more than welcome! You should always ask if we can have you, because in the end the click is more important to us than what specific skills you have. How long? We understand perfectly well that you want to travel, but you will only feel at home if you really want to stay at Fontebona. That's why we ask you to commit yourself for at least a month to our project. This gives us time to invest in you, so you don't only learn where to find the biscuit tin, but we can also show you the ropes so you can work solo. In other words, we are very pleased to invest time and effort in you, but we ask this same attitude from you. In return? In return we love to share our knowledge and experiences, if needed with a beer or a (home made) cider next to a camp fire. We know a lot about living a live as self-sustaining as possible, but we can also brush up your knowledge about art, mushrooms, philosophy or the pruning of your sweet chestnut tree. Or about whatever that makes you tick. We like to go on an excursion with you, if time allows that. What's to be done? We will mainly ask you to take over some of the routine jobs, like watering and weeding the vegetable garden, taking care of the donkeys and their crap, feeding the animals, lugging wood, cooking (if you know how to work with our seasonal supply of food), removing bracken and gorse. Sometimes you can help us make our homemade products like jam, chutney, gherkins, sauerkraut or cider. What are you getting into? Though Infiesto with all basic facilities is only 4 or 5 beautiful hiking kilometers away, a stay at Fontebona is quite isolated. There are no next-door neighbours. At Fontebona it's usually only us and our very modest livestock (1 dog, 1 cat, 2 donkeys, 2 sheep, 3 chickens). You have much more chance of meeting yourself than someone else. We sleep in an old German wagon. For you we have a sleeping place (hot water bottles and 1 warming cat available) in our old camper van. We have only very limited internet at your disposal. Checking your e-mail is usually no problem, but for other purposes we ask you to go to Infiesto where the Telecentro has free broadband internet for you. We have very limited solar power, so you cannot automatically recharge your equipment. The good news is that we have warm water in the panoramic shower. Who we are? We are Thomas and Astrid. A Dutch couple in their forties that settled for this independent lifestyle a few years ago. We enjoy meeting new people and learning new things from them in a companiable atmosphere, in which team effort plays a big role. We do not smoke, do like a beer, wine or cider, but don't do other drugs. We don´t expect you to have the same habits. To conclude Please tell us in your e-mail what is your reason for wanting to come to Fontebona, and in which month you are available.
