Recently we hosted a couple of young travelers in our home for a labour exchange – have you heard of Helpx.net ? A great way to meet new people, learn about other cultures and get some jobs around the home done too. This time around we say thank you Jessie and Scotty (and Adele and Kendal who also stayed briefly with us).
We have Scotty and Jessie to thank for this wonderful drone image of our house and garden.
Scott’s amazing art and photography can be viewed here: http://scottdenholm.com/
To learn a little more about Jessie (and see more shots of our garden/home) and read about the helpx experience first hand- check out this blog post http://theycalleditparadise.com/blog/helpx-travel-affordable-experience-culture-meet-lovely-locals/ Thanks Jessie.
It was lovely to meet you both.
Has anyone noticed the blog has been mysteriously quiet lately? We are on holiday! Our first stop – Lake Towerrining in Western Australia’s wheat belt was a fantastic place to stay ( but fortunately/unfortunately the internet signal was pretty hit and miss) hence the lack of recent communications – previous to that I have been flat out with one thing and another (including my mum being admitted to hospital – twice – and she is still there and my sister once). It has been a busy month or two.
We are fortunate to have been able to sneak in a quick two week break. Here are a couple of pictures of our recent stay. This tranquil place was a delight to visit and re charge the batteries.
