  • Description


    Hi everyone, my name is Anoushka.

    I've been traveling around the world during 5 years and just came back home.

    I used workaway during my travels, and always loved the experience!
    I've been volunteering in farms, hostels, at people's home... Doing cleaning, picking, reception (hostels), gardening, working with animals, teaching english, discover community lifestyle...
    I discovered many different cultures, languages, food, way of life.
    My travels were amazing!
    I've been hosted by really amazing people and had wonderful experiences!

    My different travels taught me about taking care of the planet, respect any people or animal, live with the minimum and enjoy the simple way of life.

    I'm a yoga teacher, I enjoy cooking, eating, travelling, speaking English, music, cinema, dancing...

    I'm from a beautiful region in the countryside of France, called "Auvergne", we have lot of cheeses, food specialties, mountains, volcanoes, castles, lakes, even a ski resort...

    For me workaway is more about meeting, helping, discovering and learning about new people, and new experiences, sharing knowledge....

    I've been hosted people from all around the world using workaway because I need a bit help, want to share my life, continue to travel a bit though travelers...

    During this difficult period of covid, I'm happy to welcome travellers conscious about the facilitie to spread the virus and extremely careful with hygiene, masks...
    Please do not come if you are not careful!

    You'll love the landscape around here it's absolutely stunning!

    I love cooking and eating... You might enjoy that part! even learn some french recipes.
    I can accommodate easily to vegans.
    Ill make you discover the famous french or regional dishes.

    I speak fluently english and french. A bit of spanish. Few words of dutch and german.
    If you need any help with french or english, i'll be able to help you.
    Or if you wanna teach me the language of your country ill be happy... I love languages!

    I'm a yoga teacher, and practice yoga regularly.

    My house is an old house, it's really simple and minimalist. Many stuffs are not working that well. There is still a lot to repair, build and renovate.

    I love my house i grew up here.
    It's a stunning, old massive, beautiful stone house.

    A bed in a shared room, I also have a private room.

    Based in trust, exchange, spirituality, work..

    The house is huge, many part are not used, because it needs renovation I'm using the bigger part.
    I don't have Internet in the house, I don't have a TV.. If you are looking to escape from the modern world.. That migth be your place 🌍

    Food will be different food every day, and I bake my own bread, you are welcome to learn 😊

    Have a look of my house pictures to have an idea...
