  • Description


    I am originally from London and travelled a fair bit in Europe and India Southeast Asia New Zealand Australia and I would still like to travel more be cause there is lots of places I've not seen. I have been to India 3 times I would love to go back again. Where I live is 15 km from the closest town of Margaret river there is only farms out this way cows and sheep and emu and kangaroos one or two vineyards so it is very peaceful out here very few cars on my road during the day maybe 3 or 6 per day and the milk truck in the evening. I really like to interact with travellers and finding out more places I would like to go visit and just basically enjoying a good conversation with different nationalities I have always wanted to volunteer overseas the only thing stopping me is finishing this house and of course my dog who is very friendly and just love all the travellers which have been coming through here

    I live on approximately 20 ha of mainly Forest. 30 km from the beach. The south-west has lots of wineries and surf beaches. I am trying to finish off my house and then get someone to live here and look after my dog so I can do some travelling myself. Most of the main construction as all been done. So the help I need is carpentry/cabinetmaking painting I have worked all of my life in the building industry so is lots of skills I can teach you! general tidying up around the building site. Helping in the garden/vegetable patch cutting and Stornoway firewood for the winter. And generally cleaning up the land making it safe for the oncoming summer fire season.
