  • Profile description
  • # Long term projects are the most welcome (minimum 2 months). Present location - England

    This seems to be a good alternative way, to get to know the local inhabitants, special places and local traditions, once that I'm seeking out a new lifestyle abroad.

    Combining volunteering with some extra work, amongst the local residents, got to be rewarding for everybody on the long run. Artisans, communities, organisations, business owners, etc, looking for someone versatile, reliable or just an extra set of hands, are welcome to drop me a line.

    • I had the privilege to stay over a certified fully organic farm where I did a wide variety of daily chores. -Welsh borders
    • I stayed for around 3 months over a cottage at the Herts council where I took the role of caretaker all around the property & as a volunteers assistant as well.

    @ Please note that I'm not planning on travelling outside the UK for now, so please do not send me invitations coming from abroad. Thanks anyways.
