  • Descripción



    I'm originally from the UK. For the past 35 years I've lived in a beautiful village in the mountains 20km west of Ronda.
    I write walking guides and lead walks in the Grazalema Park.

    The help I'm looking for - sometimes we work together, at other times not - is inside and out; gardening, some painting/restoration of doors and windows etc, at my beautiful home and campsite.
    I hope to plant out a succulent, low-water garden at the camp and possibly plant out some vines. So the help involved is varied and can sometimes be adapted to what you feel happy to undertake.
    It's also about having fun working together!

    I'd also be interested in some kind of language intercambio/exchange in Italian/German/French/Slavic language. (I'm fluent in English and Spanish). I'm also trying to improve (belatedly) my computing skills and am interested to set up an Instagram site to promote walking in the Grazalema Park (not a commercial project but one to raise awareness of the many beautiful hiking trails in this area and other parts of Spain). I've just returned from a month hiking in Asturias and would like to share some of the walks that I undertook there on an online platform.

    We sometimes will cook together whilst at breakfast we do our own thing then meet to discuss the day's tasks over coffee at around 9am. We work together until 14h meaning that you're free to do your own thing in the afternoon.

    I see workaway as a cultural exchange and enjoy company and conversation.
    Over the past years I've welcomed workawayers from all over the world.

    I enjoy sharing my knowledge of Spanish language/Culture/history and will be interested to learn about yours. I've travelled and accompanied groups to many different corners of the planet and am a committed One Worlder and European. I'm currently adopting Spanish nationality after the Brexit fiasco and will feel no regrets when I come to throw my UK passport in the bin. I am currently hosting a refugee family from Ukraine in one of my houses (not the one where you would be staying).

    You'll be close to great walking trails in the Grazalema park and Montecorto is a small, quiet and very special mountain village.

    My workawayer's accommodation is in a separate house, a spacious room with its own bathroom. There's wifi there so if you are telecommuting, no worries on that count.

    Thanks for checking out the profile.


    Please note:
    - I can only accept workawayers aged 25+ who have a driving licence
    - hope to be adopting a dog some time soon so their could be a bit of dog-walking involved

    There's a fast wifi connection in some parts of the house where you would be staying (though not necessarily in your bedroom.).

    Espacio para aparcar autocaravanas

    There's a nice place to park your van in the forest close to where I live. If you stayed in your van you'd still have the use of a house for showering, washing clothes, cooking and so on.
