    I am happy to help with language skills, and I hope that you will share your language and recipes. We can attend local music events together or just share favorite songs on our playlists. I can show you around the area with occasional day trips. We will enjoy healthy meals and happy hour by the pool at time off if you would like to bring your own favorite beverage.

    You will have your own private room with a comfortable double bed. I posted in search of a single volunteer but a couple will be considered. My daughter who used to liv nearby, knows the best places to take photos if you are interested in hikes or day trips. .. There is internet that is available. The city bus stops just across the road and if you are travelling with your own vehicle, parking is available on the street in front of my home. Please let us know how you are travelling and how long you hope to stay. I welcome guests for 1 -3 weeks at this time but may extend the time depending on the current projects.. I look forward to meeting interesting people from all around this wonderful world!
