My name is Ludo, I'm 36, I grew up between the Mediterranean sea and the beautiful Cevennes mountains in the south of France. I lived with my family, my parents, Dimitri my younger brother, my grandmother and Flucky my sweet dog. We are all very different, I m the one who loves travelling and leaving for new adventures. I'm also a nature lover and am working towards a healthier lifestyle with respect for the environment. That is why I am very interested in learning more about gardening, recycling and eco building.
I'm a big dreamer, sometimes I’m a solitary person and love to walk along the beach or into the forest, but I also love to talk, to laugh and interact with other people.
I love to read books about personal development but I don't considerate myself a spiritual person.
I have travelled a lot for 3 years, and done many Workaway placements and volunteering in different countries. I have been to New Zealand, Australia, East Asia, India, Canada, Morocco and some countries in Europe. All these experiences were very enriching, to the point that I am not ready to settle in my own country. I still want to learn, have adventures and meet new people.
I will be glad to help you with gardening, cleaning, building, etc .. Anything you ask me I will put my heart and soul into.
I am on this site, to find true cultural exchange and experience, not just a place to sleep or do a job.
I don't send messages to everyone, I take the time to select my hosts and write them a personal message, even if it’s a short one. Also, if we plan an arrival date, I will come and will not let you down at the last minute.

- gardening, striming, mower,...
- choping wood
- sanding furniture
- teaching french in schools
- take care of animals in rescues sanctuaries
If you expect specific skills, please, tell me before my arrival and I will answer you honestly if I can help you. If you want improve or learn French, I could teach you it. I' d love to learn and share the things I have learned on my travels, including how to make good crepes and chapatis, reiki healing and interesting chats about life.
