Hi, my name is Dave. I traveled around Europe and the Middle East for 5 years in my twenties. More recently I've visited a bit of 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 than four weeks in advance.
I'm offering accommodation and all meals while I am at home working on my house and garden projects.
I currently have one older male housemate. Besides the house activities, I'm into rock climbing, yoga, guitar, circus, festivals and camping.
