Area: Bikaner / Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, IndiaMy name is Yogi. I offer a short- or long-term volunteers at my properties in beautiful Rajasthan in India, namely the in Bikaner and in the Thar Desert, near Bikaner & Jaisalmer. Both places are fully run by locals. Our place in Bikaner is situated in a quiet, residential neighborhood and is only a short drive away from many interesting places worth to visit & our resort & farm in Desert is 31 km from Bikaner City , such as the famous Junagarh Fort (Red Fort) of Bikaner, the Karni Mata temple at Deshnoke (Temple of Rats, so beware of many crawling creatures near your feet!), the Bikaner spice market or the camel research center, where you can see hundreds of camels and taste camel milk. Further more, at both places you can enjoy Desert and camel safaris with our company with discounts to all work away members.. You will have enough free time to visit and experience all these, and more!I would love to find other people to travel with as travel compenions in india or other countrries! Beside these places, we also manage a organization that is working in local villages, where we contribute to youth education and basic health and hygiene. We are also supporting other causes, helping with the training of various skills needed to earn a living and also with teaching English to poor students. Our guesthouse/hotel and desert resort are important funding resources for many of these projects. For many years, we have been connected with tourism and social work and are now trying to merge them both. As we love sharing our culture and traditions with our guests and volunteers, we make an effort to make sure that the people coming to work or travel here in India get a special and peaceful environment. In doing so, we want to create a place where people can learn and exchange cultural and work experiences and help each other, a place where new ideas can grow into activities and self-sustained business. We want this place to grow space-wise and people-wise, like a network. In the last few months, we have hosted many volunteers from all over the world. Many travelers, young artists and other people who wanted to evolve have stayed at our place and have made many useful contributions, each in their own way, for the growth of our camel safari /guest house We have started our own travel we make tailor made packages all india specialy rajasthan & bhudhist sector as per clints budgets soo might need help in this also as escourt but it all depends on booking. etc . I would also be happy to travel with you to the many cities and attractions across india & the Thar Desert such as Pushkar, Mandawa, Johdpur, Jaipur ad Jaiselmer which are all within reasonable distance of Bikaner.

Area: UlsterWe are Pete and Anna, living in a traditional Irish cottage with two young children in a very scenic and peaceful part of Donegal overlooking a valley and the Glendowan mountains. We are an easy going family who enjoy travelling and meeting people from other cultures. Pete is a chef and Anna works with Crafts and Design. We have restored the cottage ourselves to a very comfortable standard using traditional methods. The house and barn are heated with wood stoves and we also use a wood-pellet boiler. We intend to install solar panels for water and/or electricity and a wind-turbine sometime in the future. We grow a lot of our own food in the garden and polytunnel.
Area: Midi PyreneesBonjour! We are Eyal and Tia. Our home is on a forested hill overlooking farmland, with an ever-changing view of the Pyrenees. Several glass doors light the double-volume lounge and open onto terrace, swimming pool and large garden. We and our cats, Liquorice and Caramelle, want to share it with you. We work in programming, web developing and writing. We also aim to host guests and integrative creative workshops (combining music, poetry, yoga, dancing, Shakespeare, new media, psychotherapy, dialogue, etc.), but must maintain day jobs while making our home welcoming, comfortable, and inspiring for guests. Having lived in several countries, we know traveling's joys and trials, so we'll give you advice or contacts, and invite you to swim, cycle, walk, do yoga, join community activities, or explore local sights, events and gastronomy. Our local Tourist Office offers guided walks in summer. Restaurants, markets, wine farms, galleries, museums and horse-riding are nearby. Within 30min to 2hr by car are hiking, climbing, skiing, river rafting, spas, caves, and beach towns such as Biarritz, St-Jean-de-Luz, and Saint-Sébastien (Spain).
Area: AlmeriaEleven years ago my husband and I decided to leave the U K for Andalucia in Southern Spain. Here we bought eleven thousand square meters of land and had our ideal home built, just outside the small mountain village of Bedar. Since my husband's death, 5 years ago, I have continued to live in Spain as I have many friends here and I love the country, its people and the Winter climate.I often fly back to England and to Switzerland to visit my daughters and grandchildren and they enjoy coming here for their holidays, especially as I have a lovely swimming pool and they can go to the sea. Mojacar, the nearest coastal resort,is 20mins drive away and I have seaviews from my home. I was a secondary school English teacher before I took early retirement and I still do some private tuition when asked. I consider myself to be a young 60ish and I like to keep active by walking, playing golf and boules.I have also taken up new creative hobbies such as painting , pottery and photography. Gardening is one of my favourite pursuits, although with such a large area, I do have some help with this and always need more. Entertaining friends is another enjoyable and regular activity .I have a beautiful garden courtyard which is ideal for get-to-gethers . In the village I have friends from Spain, Germany,and France as well as U K and as I have travelled widely myself, I enjoy the mix of European cultures and languages.
