Area: CataloniaWe are a family with a 3 year-old kid looking for a babysitter. We live in a nice town (Sant Pol de Mar) on the coast of Barcelona. Our house is close to the beach, in a quiet neighbourhood and with swimmingpool. It is 40 kms from Barcelona and Girona (Costa Brava) very well communicated by train. There are some others "workawayers" living here, so you wouldn't be alone if needed. They use to assist to Spanish classes in the morning- during their free time- so that they can learn a new language.
Area: LombardyHello, tks for visiting my profile. I'm an airline hostess aged 30 living in Italy since 2007. I took a break of my work to do something completely different in my life, and I'm delighted to have found the way in which people who think outside the box can help each other. Furthermore, knowing different cultures fascinates me. So, I signed up as a volunteer but I'd like also to experience as a host. I am a curious, calm and open-minded person who loves reading, dancing, make sports (although I'm not particularly good at any), make friends, enjoy the family (which remained in my beloved Brazil), the nature, and, of course, good wine and good cuisine!
Area: Uecker-RandowHello there! We're Alex, Jan and Arthur Heuer. We are both mid 30s, and Arthur was born in 4/2013. We live on our farm in Kirchenfeld/ Penkun, eastern Germany. Alex comes from a little town near Stuttgart and I was raised near Hamburg. We met in Tromsø, Norway in 2006, where Alex studied biologie and I kind of studied philosophie. We were brought together by our love for heavy metal music and been together ever since. Alex went back to Tromsø twice to finish her diploma, the last time, I joined her and made our living by guiding tourists. Meanwhile I had grown tired of philosophie and cancelled my studies. After Alex got her degree, we moved (back) to Hamburg together. We soon grew tired of the hasty city-lifestyle and decided to move to the countryside. We found the place we are currently living in and fell in love with it at first sight. The house had not much, but potential and we started to make it a home right away. We basically emptied the house, did the waterinstallation and electricity and started to form everything to our liking. This year (2014) we finally got a new roof and the house plastered. In 2011 we got married, in 2013 we got Arthur, so now we are a propper family. We still try to attend to Wacken festival every year, though we had to pause, the year Arthur was born. Our goal is to become selfsufficient minifarmers, we keep chickens, ducks and pigs. We have also tried sheep and rabbits, but gave them away again. We also have Lara, our dog and our three cats, Cleopatra, Pippilotta and Odin. By now, we have got quite some gardenspace ready, to keep us occupied. We try to grow as much as possible ourselves, but we are far from selfsufficient. We take responsibility for the world around us, so whatever we buy, we try to go for organic and fair trade products. We try to avoid plastic as far as possible and stay away from flavour enhancers, preservatives and a lot of other additives from modern chemnistry. We don't have WiFi because we don't know what it does to us and Arthur. We got cables ready, though ;-) We like to eat meat, but it's not a problem if you are vegitarian/vegan. We respect your way of living and expect you to respect ours – that applies generally. Since we have a little baby, we are pretty occupied, so we won't be around most of the evenings, that means, you have to be ok with aloneness, in case there are no other volunteers around. We have three caravans and a roomy viking-style-tent and also a guestbathroom, so privacy is garanteed. If you want to help us, we expect you to be able to: - clean up after yourself - cook simple meals - hold a shovel and consider yourself a hard worker. What is probably important for you as well: as we live out in the sticks, there are no shops or pubs around. The next town with 2000 inhabitans is 4 km away, there`s a tiny grocery store, a pharmacy, a flower shop and a bakery. That`s all :-P Feel free to ask last minute- we need more help! >>update 12.7.: we need more help from the beginning of September!
Area: Mosoj Llajta,Yotala nr Sucre, Bolivia, South AmericaSTOP PRESS! WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER. PLEASE CHECK OUR CALENDAR FOR AVAILABILITY BEFORE APPLYING. Ed and June have created this place, using stones from the land and earth to make adobe bricks, in the beautiful countryside 20 minutes from Sucre, Bolivia. The land measures 10.5 acres and has 360 degree views of the Andean mountains. If you are interested in getting out of the polluted cities of South America you will love staying at our place. Check out our photo album below. The main building, is an intimate hotel that was officially opened on 1st September, 2012. The UK Independent newspaper wrote in March 2013 "Sucre, the official capital, has the prettiest centre, with sparkling white colonial buildings. Its manageable altitude and cultural spots make for fine sightseeing, and there's a rare hip hotel nearby'' When our business is generating regular income we intend to contribute to those less fortunate than ourselves who are living in Bolivia. We have set up an NGO and registered charity which is aimed at improving prospects principally for young people and children in local communities, through education and training. We enjoy all year round temperatures of around 23C although it feels warmer in the high altitude sun. Nights are cooler, but only cold in June, July and August. Our pets are a siamese cat and 2 adopted rescue dogs. We also have sheep and chickens.
