Area: Wadi Rum Village, south of Jordan in between Petra and Aqaba.After several years working with tourists in the beautiful desert of Wadi Rum in Jordan, I've got a big experience as a guide. My name is Atayek Hamad, from the tribe of Zalabieh and i grew up in the desert where my parents are still living in. I am very proud of my bedouin culture and I like to share it with the foreigners who are going to visit my area. Very good driver, well experimented as trekking guide, I speak and understand english good enough and I want to communicate my passion of the desert to the others. I know many beautiful places where you can contemplate the red landscape of Wadi Rum, on the top of the highest mountains of the place for example. I will show you the tracks of animal drawings on the sand, I will tell you about our wild bedouin life here, I will lead you through unknown canyons and roads. We will share together the pleasure of being in such an amazing place. You can decide to sleep under a bedouin tent in a camp, or outside in the moonlight, you can decide if you prefere to visit Wadi Rum by jeep or by feet, I will adapt my tour to everyone, because each one has his own rythm, each one have different wishes. I am sure you'll spend an unforgetable moment with us in our desert.

Area: Midi Pyrenees**Urgent help needed to create new accommodation in the loft. If you have experience of building or carpentry there is also a possibility of paid extra work** We are creating a pilgrims' rest, campsite and yoga retreat near the French Pyrénées and we would like some workaways to help us work and play :) It's time to put the potager (veg patch) to bed for the winter and we are about to start work on renovating the attic to create more pilgrim accommodation. You can check out our progress on our website and Facebook page which we can send to you via email. We are a family of four - kids aged 8 and 6 - who moved from Norfolk in England in July 2012. We work hard while the kids are at school but we also like to play hard so please come with sense of humour intact. We have a dog, four cats and three kittens and will soon be adding chickens (once we've finished the chicken coop) and pigs to the menagerie. We want to grow as much fruit as veg as we can. I teach yoga, pilates and Zumba classes in the local community (in French and English) and we are also creating a studio in our barn for yoga/creative writing holidays. The house and land are beautiful but there is a lot of work to be done. We have found our ideal jobs but on our own it will take too long. That's why we need you!
Area: CharenteWe are a Dutch Family living in France! We live on a milk farm of 65 ha., so there's a lot of space :-) We have cows, ponies (the kids can ride on them with a little help), a donkey, 4 dogs and a cat. Our farm is just 500 mts away from the rn 141. On this road you drive 6 km left or right to a small town. Bigger cities are St. Junien (~20 mins), Limoges (~45 mins), Angoulème (~30 mins), Bordeaux (2.5 hours~) and Paris (~4 hours) (Estimated timings by car) The 3 kids speak fluent French and Dutch; they are learning/picking up English from others (English-speaking friends of the family). I (mama) speak fluent French, English, German and Dutch. My husband speaks French, Dutch and English fluently. Dear Workawayers, As our farm and our children are very laborious, we are almost always looking for extra hands! Of these extra hands we hope that they are able to work independently, own make decisions,without side lining others. Generally we are early work starters - we start with breakfast between 7.00-8.00am,(in the weekend/holidays one our lather!) subsequently taking a short rest in the afternoon.We ask 4-5 flexible hours a day, rest is volunteer.
Area: ConnachtCome and join me on my six acre smallholding on a hill 25 km from Sligo. There's a cat, dog, ducks and lots and lots of fruit trees and bushes, rhubarb and other trees (mostly alder, willow, birch). If you are interested in Irish culture, I am one of only four or five Hosts in all Ireland that can speak the Irish language. Please take note: I need helpers who are able to start work early and work hard and enthusiastically. I am an honest and a fair man, but not a rich man. If this is too much hassle for you, do not waste your time (and mine) by writing to me. Availability: Looking for help starting MID JANUARY. PLEASE;PLEASE; PLEASE DON`T WRITE TO ME IN ENGLISH; IF YOU KNOW ANY OTHER LANGUAGE; even a minority language. I can translate any language using Computers, and it will be a pleasure. just let me know what language you are using, and we´ll take it from there. The aim is to establish a forest garden with a wide range of edible and useful plants, and eco-friendly, low energy accomodation. There is an awful long way to go yet, but a start has been made. The disadvantages include extremely primitive accomodation and washing facilities, swarms of bloodsucking insects, lots and lots of rain and clouds, hard physical work outdoors, remote location, BUT: I'm flexible on work hours and days (as long as you work well), and usually have availability to take helpers! If you want to learn or improve your English, I will be helpful, but you must teach me some of your language. I much prefer speaking Irish (Gaelic) and if you want to learn a few words, it will be a pleasure. NO internet (nearest public internet is 8km away). NO television. Compost toilet (yes, the bucket has to be emptied regularly!). Wash yourself with a bowl of hot water and soap, or try the outdoor bath (light a fire underneath and in half an hour you have a very warm bath). There are a couple of bikes for the use of helpers. To encourage helpers to take good care of the bikes I request a 50 euro damage deposit, fully refundable if you return the bike in working order. (If you hit a pothole while using the bike, you can buckle the wheel badly, and a new wheel is 40 euro!)
