    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    45 years ago I worked my way round the world before Workaway was invented. I empathize with like-minded travellers and we can learn from each other.

    Due to a Workawayer getting sick, I am urgently in need of dog-sitters for 5 weeks starting end of September. I have a remote property in central British Columbia, Canada. Spectacular location, very wild. Work at other times of the year is building and maintenance work, and collecting and splitting firewood, and gardening. Season is usually from late March to end of October. Some years I need dog-sitters in the fall when I go on book-promoting tours. This can be either October or November and may last from 4-5 weeks.

    In a cabin or yurt usually, but if the accommodation is crowded, a tent is used for overflow.

    What else ...

    It is not always possible to give volunteers half a days' work so I tell everyone to work half the time: in other words, work one day and take a day off; or work 4 days and take 4 days off. This is ideal for people who like to explore. Lots of hiking opportunities in spectacular mountains, and some wildlife viewing; notably bears in spring and fall.
