If you love to travel and want to see the world as it is - not through tourist eyes...HAVE I GOT A SITE FOR YOU!
I read a great article by a mom/travel writer Alice Griffin. She begins the article thus...
"In return for a few hours’ work each day, volunteers have the chance to take the holiday of a lifetime"
Well, I was certainly intrigued! My son has been wanting to tour Europe upon graduation and this seems to be a way to stretch the length of time he can stay, by volunteering his way around!
It reminds me a lot of our site, hosting families but with a twist! A working vacation, this might be the thing that many of our members and readers would find beneficial!
Spend some time there! You will most likely be inspired or at the very least intrigued!
Here are some places you might go...
Villa on the Cote D'Azur, South of France
We are a British couple ( three grown up chidlren) who live 6 months in France and 6 months in California. Our place in France is in the heart of an absolutely beautiful medieval village approx 4 kms from the Medierranean. We bought the house 3 years ago and we have been renovating the grounds which contain a large old established garden which was very neglected when we bought it. There is always a lot of work to do in the garden and we need help from volunteers with some experience of gardening. There are many lovely beaches within a few kms for swimming and sunbathing. We are currently signing up volunteers searching for a working holiday ( 2 weeks) on the Cote D' Azure
