    Description

    I am a 60 year old retired teacher and i have just purchased a barn to convert into a family home.
    The barn is to be built using local builders but i need some help preparing the garden and little bits of clearing out within the barn.
    I have a converted American School bus that is available with two beds and cooking facilities.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    the project is a barn renovation!

    I am living on site trying to slowly renovate an old barn whilst keeping the garden fresh and healthy!

    I need any help you can offer, whether it is trade skills, gardening or simply cleaning and keeping good company!

    In exchange i can offer a place to stay, occasional meals, cooking facilities and English lessons. I was a teacher in Oxford, UK for 20 years and therefore have a strong command of the English Language.

    The location is on the camino de santiago trail which i have walked recently. I can cerainly assist you if you are walking that way and direct you in the correct direction.

    Lastly, i have many connections regarding teaching, or learning in England so i can certinaly help you if you are considering moving to work/ study in the UK.
