Hi my name is Dave. I travelled Europe and the Middle East for 5 years in my twenties. More recently a bit a Asia and a lot of Australia. For the last couple of years I travel away for work in blocks and then return home for periods between jobs to work on my house and gardens. Due to the nature of my work I will not know whether I can accept a booking request for greater then four weeks in advance.
I'm offering accommodation and all meals while I am at home working on my house and garden projects. I live with 1 other girl in late twenties. She has a young pet rabbit. Besides the house activities I'm into rock climbing, yoga, guitar, circus, festivals and camping.
Due to several unexpected unwell people arriving I need to specify that arriving with a cold or flu or anything else that could be contagious is not acceptable. I am not running a hotel with self contained living quarters and consideration is mandatory to not arrive unfit for work and bring viruses that could affect my household's members ability to work and be able to financially support themselves.

It is no problem for me to provide vegetarian food. Catering for vegans would not be much more of a stretch as I already avoid dairy. I don't however provide expensive vegan diet supplements or "superfoods".
