Area: Geelong North VictoriaI am what some may term a "Trendy Nanna" - some people refer to me as "Nifty Nanna" - anyway I am a Nanna to many - both blood and "adopted" - I am now retired and live in my own home which is far to big for me alone so I have opened it up for share accommodation - mostly for students from all over the world - I have many "new children" and have been lucky enough to visit some of them in their homelands and even to attend a couple of their weddings - I have eight of my own children and many grandchildren - both blood and adopted and they are scattered world wide - I am now on nocturnal dialysis and have been trained so that I can carry out the procedure myself at home which I do 5 nights a week. I am an habitual magpie which seriously needed attending to and I absolutely love gardening. I am a born again Christian and attend http://www.planetshakers.com/ check them out... hope this gives you a bit of an insight into who I am - oh I almost forgot the most important members of the family who live with me - two cats - a very cheeky but loveable three year old female called Cookie Monster and the old man and boss of all, 13 year old Nemko - who loves to snuggle up and just sleep the days away.
Area: co. WexfordThanks for your inquiries everybody, at the moment we can only host someone from the 16th of May until the 23rd of June. If that suits you, we'd love to hear from you! We are a German-Irish family (30-something couple with three children) and live on a dairy farm in the sunny south east of Ireland, close to the Irish Sea.
Area: UrbinoHello dear volunteers, We do activities: painting, watercolour workshops, music, Murals and practice meditation, yoga and some natural therapies. We are not a Centre, activities are taking place in different public centers. We live in the countryside located in the region of Marche, surrounding by beautiful hills near an small medieval city plenty of young students from the university. 35 km from the coast and beaches. Lots of nature, beautiful landscapes, natural reserve, forests, small lake very close to the home, (ideal for a clay bath and swimming in the summer). Now in the winter, stay here could be a very nice adventure for open minded people. The place is very quiet and in this moment there's not much people. Ideal to be calm and to get deep contact with nature, meditation and if you need to go into yourself and learn things from the human being and its personal development and evolution... think about to come. Bus stop is 15/20 minutes walk. PLEASE DON'T WRITE US MORE THAN TWO MONTHS IN ADVANCE... THANK YOU.
Area: centralWe are Gijs, Linda and Carlos, and run a camping in Central Portugal where you will have the opportunity to learn all aspects of running a small rural camping, located 9 kms from the historic city of Tomar and one hour.s drive from Lisbon. We are currently looking for a couple or two males to help with some small building projects during the month of March. Here we attract a variety of international visitors - chalet, caravan and tent guests who you will be able to assist with registrations and payments in addition to offering local tourist information and advice. In the mornings we need assistance with feeding and walking the animals, cleaning duties around the camping, laundry and chalet preparation. Occasionally there will also be maintenance or gardening chores to be undertaken. In the late afternoons the children like to walk with the animals or help with their feeding. In the evenings our guests enjoy to chat over a drink at the bar-terrace and on certain evenings we offer Camp Dinners to bring everyone together which you will be able to help prepare and serve.
