Area: SardiniaIn 1977 I inherited and have run this traditional bee farm which was started in 1917 by my maternal grandmother who introduced moveable beehives (one of the first to do so in Sardegna). I have three apiaries in the countryside and the wildflowers and rare endemic plants of this area make it an ideal place to keep bees. The area of Monte Arci, near the west coast of Sardinia, is of the highest quality environmentally and historically. It is part of Parco Geominerario della Sardegna and is poised to become the first natural park on the island. As an environmentally friendly activity our beekeeping is of the highest standard. I work the hives and farm organically (certified) and my ‘Mieleria’, powered by a photovoltaic system is built in the traditional clay bricks used in Sardinia. In addition to the bees, we have, distributed in several plots around the farm, an orchard consisting mainly of olive, apple, almond and pear trees.
Area: Veliko TarnovoHi, My name is Cliff. I live in Bulgaria and run and accommodation/activity center. I live on my own. I am a rock climber and teach people to climb. I have lots of Bulgarian friends and climbing friends. I support Wolverhampton Wanderers, the greatest football team in the known universe. I need lots of help throughout the year to keep the place clean and tidy and to improve the place.
Area: AndaluciaI have lived in Andalucia since 1998 and have bought a piece of land 15 years ago. With it came a horse and since then the love and work with these fantastic animals has transformed my life. My experience and dedication in this field are now almost 100% natural. The only thing missing here is green fields, where the horses can run freely and grase all day.
Area: Appenzel AusserrhodenSpanish Mustangs are the heritage horses of Europe as well as the US. We believe they carry the DNA of the war horses of the Crusades and the Celtic Iberian horses of European prehistory. Our charity Windcross Ch seeks to publicise and educate about this rare horse with our 6 here in Appenzell AusserRhoden. We are a family of 4. We also support the preservation of Historic European Martial Arts with long sword, bow, crossbow, halberd etc. and have our own local club Artes Certaminis. There is local skiing in winter and lots of local hikes, paragliding, and biking paths. The Tsantis and Alpstein are local mountaineering challenges.
Area: East-Flanders, City of GhentHi, we are a friendly Belgian family living in Wondelgem near the city of Ghent. I work as a translator, I'm 42 years old. My husband Carl works as a chemist and he's 42 as well. We have a 16 year old daughter Joline. We live in a detached house, surrounded by a garden. Public transport (bus) is right across the street. We would like to welcome a young girl (aged between 17 and 21). She can learn about our culture, participate in daily life in Ghent, visit sights with us, have fun with the family and the animals we own. Our guest does not have to work for us but all help in and around the house and with the animals is welcome. She can learn our language, or one of the languages we speak and our daughter and we could learn from the guest. It would be great to have a nice person staying with us as from MAY 2015. Looking forward to meeting you!!!!
