    Description

    Gardening and household organizing and/or cleaning are our usual needs
    We found each other at the age of twenty and have spent 47 years learning about life together and growing spiritually. We both have a great quick sense of humor. We have an acre on the bayou that is always needing some care. We sometimes need some household maintenance. We are in the process of minimalizing and appreciate those that have good organizational skills and are good at minimalizing.
    We believe a 10 days to 14 days max would be great help. In our culture it is understood that whomever stays in the home is part of the community and they help out with meals and or clean up as needed.
    We are online hosts with guests from all over the world. Linni speaks Spanish fluently and some French.
    We like to travel. Trent is a scientist/ massage therapist and I'm an artist/healer. We have a saltwater pool and kayaks for time off fun. Our home is an easy nice 1/2 mile/ 1km walk to our small downtown w restaurants, coffee shop, gift shops and thrift stores for off time. We are vegetarians and do not cook meat in our home. We have 1 cat that wanders in and out the house.
    Please no smokers.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Breaux Bridge is in the heart of Cajun country where the French people came here and have kept their French culture including music food and dancing. We are about 2 hrs from New Orleans Louisiana and 20 minutes from Lafayette Louisiana. Saturday's there's a Zydeco breakfast then a Cajun music jam and several micro breweries some with live music. There is cajun and Zydeco music and jams just about every night.
    Trent is a scientist/ massage therapist and I'm an artist/healer. We both do energy healing. We have a saltwater pool and kayaks for time off fun. We are vegetarians for over 40 years and can answer any questions for those curious or interested. We have 1cat that wanders the grounds. We participate in Tibetan Buddhist meditation practices twice a week in Lafayette and you are welcome to join us if interested.
