Next Destination(s): In the UK for autumn 2017,
travelling to Spain/Portugal for winter.
Artists in particular please contact us if
there's room in your community! Kelly is
itching to crochet, paint & create.
Jim and I are an Australian couple that are travelling around Europe and interested in HelpX because it seems to be a great way to travel and see more of the world.
Travelling in a campervan at the moment so we bring our own accommodation!
Our goal is to become more self-sufficient by learning from the permaculture projects and farms we visit. We see volunteering as offering the chance to learn new skills along the way, while seeing beautiful places and meeting wonderful people.
Ideally, we are looking to work approximately 4-6 hours a day, 4-5 days a week in exchange for meals, somewhere to park up, laundry/shower facilities, good vibes and great learning experiences. If this sounds like something you could offer us, please email!
We are 100% gay-friendly, trans-friendly, kid-and-dog friendly, have no special dietary needs or allergies and would love to hear from you!
