Oceane stayed with us for two months and it was a great experience. She quickly became a member of the family and our kids loved her. She was a courteous and quiet house-guest (always did her dishes, helped out with dinner etc.), excellent at following directions, a competent care-giver, and was always on time and ready to go when we had arranged for her to take care of the kids. She was also super-fun to hang out with! She is well-travelled and was great to talk to. I wish she could have stayed longer. Thanks, Oceane!

Krystalenia was my first Workaway host and I am very thankful for that. I felt like I was a part of her family. It was the best two weeks experience and I wish I could stay longer. She is a hard working woman and I tried to help her the best I could. I helped with house work like cleaning windows, ironing, washing dishes and carpets, easy jobs. She is a wonderful person, she helped me a lot with arranging my travel to the South part of Crete. She took me to her home village Kritsa where I met her nice parents and her sister and we had dinner together. She told me a lot about Crete and it's history. She cooked very good Cretean meals. She did everything she could to make my stay pleasent. Looking forward to meet her again.

Légué ahi y no sabía exactamente que iba a hacer a parte de dar curso de ingles. Llegué en un pueblo aislado y tenía que dar cursos de ingles en el colegio (jóvenes de 12 a 18 años). Desdel principio me sentí muy bien en este lugar, los otros profesores y los estudiantes me acogieron super bien. Fue una experiencia exepcional para mi, una de las mejores que tuve en Sur America. Pude compartir mucho con los jovenes de la escuela que se interesan a tu cultura y que siempre estan con una sonrisa grande. Cada dia fue interesante. Además, pude compartir y jugar volley con los otros profes. Ahi, aprendi un monton de cosas y pude experimentar la vida de profesora en Bolivia que es muy diferente de mi pais. Yo tenía mi habitación privada y me daban la comida. Yo recomendaría mucho este voluntariado! :) Yo me quedé 2 semanas y fue un poco corto, recomendaría quedarse más tiempo. Ps: el nivel de ingles es muy bajo así que no es difícil dar los cursos, y yo tenía la libertad de eligir cada día lo que quería enseñar. Muchas gracias a Beymar el creador del proyecto por darnos esta oportunidad, y además es super simpático! :)

Eu combinei com um felipe para ser voluntária por 10 dias, o que se tornou meses. adoro o tratamento de felipe, é uma pessoa linda, muito divertida, compreensiva, alegre, simpática, está sempre organizando uma festa, churrasco, trilha para a praia, etc. Ele me ajudou muito com o meu português. A experiência de ser vizinha da praia e os amigos que Caraguatatuba me deu foi a melhor. O trabalho é simples, com horários flexíveis, se você precisar. Sempre será um lugar para voltar. muito sucesso em tudo que vem, sempre serei grata por me acompanhar quando mais precisar, para cada conversa diversificada e me receber de volta ha. ata mais marcelino =)

We stayed with Suzanne, Doug and beautiful Skye for a week in June for our first workaway and had such a fab time! The week was full of hard work, amazing home cooked food and lovely people that we will never forget! The village was quiet but there were a couple of nice bars and restaurants to enjoy after work that are only 5 minutes walk away from the house. You can even see the bus station from the kitchen! Although it is worth bearing in mind that the buses are not very frequent and the nearby villages are too far to walk. Other workaways recommended hitch hiking but if like us that’s not your thing you might struggle getting around as taxis are non existent. Our work included painting, organising, ironing and clearing out rooms and carrying things to the basement or cave! Be prepared to put your back into it! We would definitely recommend this workaway if you’re looking for an authentic rural village in the south of France. Suzanne and Doug are fantastic hosts. They couldn’t do enough for us and they were great fun to get on with! We would love to visit again!

How difficult to put into words such an incredible experience! We share with Fergus, Petra and little Annie a beautiful month in a small, quiet and beautiful village in the Central Bohemian region. From the first day they welcomed us with joy and made us feel at home. We shared most of the day with Fergus and Petra was returning from work in the afternoon. Although our English is not very good, Fergus tried hard to explain our tasks. We were very excited to see how his project to modify his big house to rent apartments was progressing. We feel part of the project and very proud to see an apartment finished! The family is used to receiving volunteers (we became 6) and Fergus prepared each meal with great dedication. Fergus cooks in an exquisite, healthy, tasty and varied way. He always made every shared lunch or dinner a very pleasant time and we shared many stories. We work as a team and always very organized. During the middle of our stay we slept in the new apartment with the other volunteers. The appartment is very comfortable and spacious. We agreed with Fergus on the work schedule and when we needed a day off we had no problems. In time we shared with Petra, she took us to see and visit beautiful places near the town such as rivers, lakes and forests. They were beautiful sun evenings! Little Annie is very intelligent, active, wants to learn everything and practiced Spanish language whit Ana For the next workawayers, if you want to know Prague this is the indicated host since you are not far away and you will also be in the middle of Central Bohemia, a region that surprised us for its beauty, believe me you can walk for hours through the forest and day next you want to do it again Another company that you will have in this family is they Wolfiee dog, we assure you that you will love him from the first time you see him. This is just a summary so that the next guests know what great host is waiting for them. When we said goodbye to the family, we expressed how much we missed them and how well we felt together with them during the month of sharing. It only remains to say thank you thank you and we are confident that we will see each other again !!

Anna es una persona excepcional ! Se quedó 2 semanas con nosotros y se integro perfectamente al lugar. Tiene mucha energía, mucha curiosidad, es sociable, tranquila, entiende las cosas muy rapidamente y es muy autonoma. Anna trabajó full, pero tambien compartimos muchas fiestas, paseos por la selva, cocina deliciosa ( Anna cocina hermoso !), y tiene manos y imaginación de hada, haciendo muchas cosas muy lindas para embellecer al lugar (tu colibri es el mas lindo del mundo !). Fue un placer abrirle nuestra casa y compartir con ella y el equipo de voluntarios que estaba en el momento. Vuelve cuando quieras ! Que tengas un lindo viaje ! Fiesta !!

Well, how can I start this... What you can read in Jane's profile is exactly what you get. A lovely rural life in the fantastic rural area of Herefordshire. The day I arrived at Jane's house I was heartly welcomed by four very kind dogs and Jane's family. Had a delicious lasagna and a stowford cider while talking about my journey, and I immediately realized: this is going to be an awesome time with all those kind people around me. I felt at home the second I stepped over her doorstep. Yeah what do you have to do at Jane's little animal shelter? Jane is very easy going and the jobs she asks you to do are not that difficult or hard manual work (unless she decides to cut down the three birch trees in front of her house while you are staying there :D ). Her cooking is great and she tries to cater to your every needs. I really enjoyed our discussions in the evening and the scientific debates with Ryan in the lounge. All in all was a stay that made some great memories. And I will definetely try to visit them again in the future, if I find the time. Nevertheless I will stay in contact with you guys. I can absolutely recommend this host to everyone that is thinking about visiting the UK. So greetings to Pete, Ryan, LJ, Moira, Alan and of course Jane (Nemo, Ellie, Zed, Jake, Lucy, Archie and all the cats ^^ ), hope we will meet again in the future and best of luck for your acting career Ryan ;) Cheers Stefan

Sorry for the late feedback. I wanted to thank you for the 4 weeks in April. First of all, I have to say that the landscape and the view from the house are unique and beautiful. I learned a lot about sheep and it was nice to be involved with the lambing. It was a busy time but I really enjoyed it. To rescue a lamb is an experience I will never forget! And it is really great how Deirdre and Jerry take care about their sheep and everything is really organized. Now I want to come to the two little toddlers Margaret and Annie. My highlight was on the first day taking Annie and Margaret for a bath. These two are really sweet but their also keeping you busy. It was always a challenge to get them to sleep. They are full of energy! A day without being outside is a no-go hahah. And not to forget Matthew the busy little farmer. He is really independent for his age and loves farming. While my stay I saw a few little towns (Killarney, Sneem, Kenmare) which are beautiful. And I was able to pursue my passion with horses on the farm. A pitty that I couldn`t meet Susi`s foal anymore. I wish you all the best.

I couldn't have had a better first Workaway experience. I was worried, going for the first time, being quite a shy person and not practicing any French save conversational with tourists for a few years. Claire was always welcoming from the beginning, not just with my French, but encouraging for me to try new things, asking about Scotland, the differences between our countries, and always had something interesting to share about the landscape or local sites. The 10-year-old twins (Salut Angeron et Serafan!) were charming and cute, not just as kids go, but for anyone. (Did you know in France, it's called 'Le Dabbe'?) They were well-spoken, mature and polite for their age, and more often than not knew an English word I was yet to find in French. When and if I did look after them, they often looked after themselves, but I'd encourage you to try French with them if you can, since they really seem to appreciate it. So much so, that by the end of the ten days, they had asked I counted at least three separate times when and if I was coming back, and I felt guilty at the fact it could only maybe be next year, Claire was even accommodating for my shyness and anxiety on the one day, when the family was going to a Rugby tournament in the Isle over, I asked if it would be alright to stay home for the one day, to which she said 'No problem'. But when we were going out, we did plenty you could ask of for a week and a half. The beautiful Oleron beach (twice) the weather was scorching (Great for a Brit) and Claire did what she could for my asking to play somewhere, looking all over the town and being more than apologetic when we couldn't find anything. Maybe next August. Claire's food was an excellent introduction to the French stereotype. Even the simplest meals were full of flavour, and beforehand she messaged asking my food preferences, from the veggies I ate, I can say vegetarians or vegans will be in good hands. As for the work, if that's your worry, it was simple and rewarding. Just painting a room or weeding or mowing a garden, nothing to make you feel like a workhorse or not part of the family, you feel good helping someone renovate their house knowing that it'll help. I never felt overworked or used, Claire letting me work at my own pace, which encouraged me to try to work maybe a little bit faster. I'd recommend the place, people, trying Workaway.

I had an amazing time at Megan’s lovely hostel at Bruce peninsula!:) She introduced me to her friends and took me to local events so I could get to know the lions heads community and life in rural Ontario. The hostel is full of love for details and it felt like home to me. Megan has developed a really good sustainable and well organized way of running the hostel and it was nice to learn about that. Working there and meeting guests from all over the world was a great experience. It was a pleasure to get to know her and the lions head community and I hope I can come back soon 🤗

Excelente experiencia en el hostel. Pau, la encargada de los voluntarios, es una excelente persona que hizo que me sentiera en casa desde el primero dia, y fue siempre pendiente de nosotros. Tengo excelentes recuerdos de los encuentros compartidos. Me sentí muy a gusto y cómoda durante los 3 semanas. Estoy agradecida por todo y espero poder volver un dia en Holbox y alli esta el mejor bar de la Isla ❤️

This was my first work away experience and it was very good! I stayed on Jason and Linda's farm for 4 weeks, and I am so grateful for their sons Martin and Isaiah for taking me across most of the Island on weekend excursions. Hana locals are such an amazing group of people, and I will most definitely come back to Maui again. The food is expensive in Hana because it is a resort town. There are food trucks that cost around $8-20 a meal that are very easily accessible. The work on the farm for me mainly consisted of weed whacking. I enjoyed it because it is really rewarding. I have to say I did leave kind of early because of a more permanent work stayer on the farm, who is very friendly most of the time, but he did get negative towards me sometimes and didn't accept that. I also found myself walking into town and doing some of the same stuff over again and it got kind of boring. If you stay here I would definitely recommend getting a bike so you don't have to walk everywhere.

Sophia spent 2 weeks with us and I really enjoyed it! She is such a positive, respectful, open-hearded, lovely young woman! She appreciates all the little gifts in life and her positive view reminds me to be more thankful every day . It is very interresting and joyful to spend time with her and talk about many things. Also she is very fun- loving! She cooked delicious meals, helped to keep the kitchen clean, managed the dishwasher and loved to play with the children. It was a great cultural exchange for us! Sophia, we are happy if you visit us again! All the best! Eva

I stayed to weeks at the farm from Jacqui and Fernando. I really enjoyed it to stay with them. It was a very good experience and I learned a lot about planting trees, their animals and cooking. Jacqui is an excellent cook, I loved her food. You can always be sure, that the things she make is organic or from their own farm. You will never go hungry to bed:) Also Jacqui take care of her workaways, if anything is wrong or you don’t feel comfortable, you always can talk with Jacqui and Fernando. The work on the farm makes fun, especially to take care of the animals. I also had the opportunity to go and explore Ottawa, they took me to the bus and is easy to get to the city Centre. So I can recommend to stay on the farm for a few weeks! Thank you to Jacqui and Fernando for two interesting weeks at your farm! I wish you all the best and take care:)

It was great to have April and Gracie staying with us. They are both fun, easy going and helped us a lot with weeding. If you are looking for someone friendly, helpful and reliable we can highly recommend both girls. It's been a pleasure to have them and we hope to see them again one day! Maybe for another round of the Azul board game? ;-)
