    Hi everyone!

    My name is Alma.

    As probably most of you, one of my favorite things in life is to travel and to discover The World!! And, this is easy to do when you have a family who encourages you to do so.
    I left home few years ago, and I am now based in Bahrain, Middle East.

    I am lucky to have a cool family, full of positivism, understanding and love who have taught me great values and the ability of enjoying life the way I feel is right to me.
    For this and many more reasons, I am so grateful to my parents that I would like to help them somehow through the distance.

    My parents are 54 years old very open minded and respectful people.
    My dad is a Music Therapist, happy, full of energy and hugs, rock n´roll singer and a guitar player.
    My mum is an Ayurveda massage Therapist, subtle, caring and great adviser and listener.
    Both are nature lovers and enjoy living in our tiny village where they run accommodations.
    My brother Noé lives only couple of hours far from home so you might meet him during your stay! He is 23 years old most sporty guy! He loves skiing, kayaking and climbing between many others. He is very friendly and active always up for adventures.

    We have a dog (Mora) two sheeps (Felisa and Negrita) and some chickens.- All of them very friendly :)

    My family speaks very very little English so I will be the one answering all emails and questions you might have.
    Volunteers from any country are welcome but, ideally you would be happy with the language exchange!
    It would be awesome if you have a basic knowledge of Spanish but, if not, google translate can help!

    The house has three floors with all facilities, 2 living rooms, 2 toilets, kitchen, 3 rooms, terrace, garden, swimming pool, parking, WIFI. - You are welcome to use the communal areas at any time but please always clean after yourself and treat things as they were yours :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Orbanajo is a tiny village surrounded by nature. - It is peaceful, relaxing, a place where you can feel the silence and fresh air! The perfect place to disconnect out of the big cities and reconnect with yourself...

    There is nothing but houses and only 15 people living here so you must be aware of this however, the closest village is only 2km away and the main city (Ponferrada with 70.000 inhabitants) is 7 km away.
    Although there is not public transport to Orbanajo, my parents and brother daily drive to the city centre so they can always lift you. There is a 24h taxi service if you would need it at some point as well.
