    We are very open minded, caring and compassionate and enjoy the company of others and get on great with children, We also enjoy photography and local history.
    We have been hosts since 2012 in our place in Spain and we have hosted many different people from all over the world. We have a garden where we have worked to develop an area of bio-diversity and plant life in a very dry environment. We have also grown organic veg and maintained and harvested almonds trees.
    We also built a straw-bale, sandbag house and fully renovated an old stone farm building with help from our volunteers. We also have experience volunteering through workaway, having done a few long-term placements.

    Craig is very handy and has skills in many areas and can pretty much turn his hand to anything. He loves working with wood, building custom made furniture and fitting out our van for travelling.
    He has experience with plumbing, electrical work, tiling , stud walls, flooring, stone walls and has general building skills. Machine opperator. Landscape gardening and maintenace, grounds keeping and woodland management. (chainsaw ceritfied) As well as working in tech support for many years.
    Krista is very crafty and always trying to evolve my crafts skills and I am proficient in decorating and labouring.
    she has also been practicing yoga for many years now and is a quailified 300 hour yoga teacher, teaching vinssaya flow. Krista is more than happy to find people to teach teach yoga with. I also love to sketch, and paint and practice calligraphy.
    We both love nature and living in an environment where we are close to nature. We are down to earth and adaptable people with initiative. We are very keen to learn new skills and pass on skills we have acquired. We are not scared of hard work, or getting our hands dirty.
