Area: Skiathos, Greece1 July 2014 Hi again ! Well, the play lounge isn't open yet and the accommodation issues aren't solved. Other than that, everything is great :) Seriously... We won't found a house before the end of the touristic season, I think we're quite sure about that. So, yes, we'll have a house to host you at some point in September/October but until then, all we can offer is a mezzanine in the play lounge (with a lot of mattresses but I think that during the hot months of the summer, 4 guests is enough for our fan to bring you fresh air) and our van with 2 double beds. The play lounge has a toilet and will have a bathroom in a few days. The kitchen is... Camping style... The play lounge should be open at some point during July and we already have 4 very nice girls with us so for the moment we don't really need more people. But if you want to come in August and are not afraid of the accommodation part, send us a message :) Lots of love to all of you ! 26 May 2014 I just wanted you to know... The play lounge will be vegetarian (mainly vegan) and so am I and a lot of our guests. You can cook and eat meat in the house if you want to but please respect your roomates sensibility :) 21 May 2014 There were some changes in the accomodation part, as the house we wanted to rent had... roof problems. We found another (smaller) house, though, we'll move in in June and will know by then how many people we can host :) 13 April 2014 (yes, I'll start putting dates on my updates :) ) Hello everyone ! Things are going good, the paperwork is almost done (but is it ever really done ?), we rented the place and started building the inside of the place like we want it. In May, we should have a house for all of you. One bedroom with 2 double beds, a huge living room with lots of beds and couches and a even bigger balcony for whoever wants to sleep outside :) So... We should open around June but you're welcome to come and help with the building work :) See you soon with some pictures ! Electra Hi ! Thank you everyone for your enthousiasm ! We have found a place ! YES ! We've rented and and started all the bureaucratic work so, yes, around May 2014 we should open ! Of course, as we're still running with all the paperwork, we haven't found a place to live (and host you) yet but that will happen soon too. So, of course, we don't know yet how many people we'll be able to host... I promise we'll keep you posted ! Hello ! We are opening a play lounge on the beautiful island of Skiathos. A kind of cafeteria for the parents with a lot of room for the children to play. Outdoor on the bouncing castles and slides and swings and indoor in the big room separated in different corners with different kind of activities and games. We'll open sometime during the summer. The building work will begin in May but we won't be there and your rooms won't be ready yet so, actually, help will be needed after the end of June. Skiathos has a great night life, splendid beaches and nature and if you like it, you'll be free, of course, to enjoy it as much as you want.
Area: Essaouira ProvinceI am a 46 year old Scot and my wife, 37, is from Argentina. I am a jack of all trades and have been many things in life, from soldier to TV presenter and met my love in Ibiza where she had settled temporarily. We were both big travellers before meeting one another and still are, although there's less time for such things now. We just got back from walking with a camel through Xinjiang and then with donkeys through Kyrgyzstan. For some years now we've been building the Serai in Morocco with our fisherman and farmer neighbours. We have used cement only in the frame and on the roof. Otherwise we use only rocks, old bricks, earth and lime. We teach ourselves how to do things from books and the internet then we teach the guys and another bit is built. It's a fantastic building, sitting against a forested hillside 800m from the beach, and has a bright future as a permaculture research centre. We have now teamed up with the two communities we live between and are about to begin a fantastic project to regenerate their farmlands and the forest behind, to build a sustainable future for them and to learn, by trial and error, what works in such a semi arid landscape, before taking these lessons all over North Africa. We will be using permaculture, holistically managed grazing, agro-ecology and aqua-ponics. The permaculture project with will be starting next year (2014). For the moment, from mid-November, we are looking for people to help with building the house/centre, internet promotion of the permaculture project. We hope you can join us.
Area: RajasthanWe would love your help booking and traveling with our camel safari. On our trips you can expect to sleep under the stars in a beautiful non-touristic location and see the Thar Desert dunes on camel back! It is possible to visit many villages and cool spots along the way too! Our hotel/house is in a prime location within the fort. The rooms are decorated with beautiful tiny murals of flowers and quotes reminding us to "trust life." Currently we are working on making the rooftop into a cafe, and so we hope to finish that soon... maybe with your help! We are also interested in finding someone to help us with reception and waiting tables, if you are interested in that sort of work. Room and board will be free if you are willing to help us out! We also have an organic farm that has been in the family for hundreds of years. We would love to see you at our farm so we can learn about your culture and your country, as well as teach you our culture and work. At our farm you will help grow food in a traditional Indian way, we produce more than one hundred different kinds of food and spices and can teach you about all of them! At the farm there are 380 people all from our family working, with opportunities for all kinds of different work - from helping with the farm to teaching the kids. We hope to see you here!
Area: Urswil is a tiny town located in the heart of the Seetal lake valley. From our window you have an amazing view of the Swiss alps. With a 20 minute train ride from Luzern you can reach this secret, little paradise.We are a young-ish couple who live in a large farm house in a small (tiny) town in Switzerland. Urs is a dairy farmer who recently gave up his office job to work on the farm full-time. Urs bought the farm from his parents a few years ago, but his dad Franz, still helps out by working almost full-time as well. Urs loves to go mountain Biking, learn about Investment strategies, go on ski tours and rock climb. I (Nadja) work in Marketing and after a long day at the office I'm happy to come home and enjoy the beautiful view of the mountains. I love the peaceful feeling of the countryside and think it's the perfect balance to the hectic work life we all live. I also love to rock climb! Between the two of us I am definitely the more creative person in our household. I love to try all sorts of craft Projects and have started a natural soap Business. As I am a dual citizen (Canadian and Swiss) I also teach English from time to time! For me there are always to few hours in every day! Franz and Emilia (Urs' mom) live in a small, new chalet near the main farm house. If you stay with us, you'll surely get to have the pleasure of visiting them for a meal from time to time. Although Franz and Emilia do not speak any English, they are always very eager to learn and will love to hear all about your traveling experiences.
