We are a loud, fun and just a little bit messy family of 5 (mum, dad, + a 14 year old, 11 year and 4 year old). We love our large home in the Blue mountains and happy to share our guest room with a talented traveller. There are a lot of creative projects we have around the house inside and out, and if you can help out in between your travels - what a great partnership. We do have 3 cats, a dog, and chickens (they add to the fun & messy part).
