Some testimonials from our ethical nomads.
"I had a fantastic time staying with Eva. She is a delightful person, very grounded, caring and perceptive. The moment I arrived, she took me to a drum circle at the beach. I actually DANCED, despite my shyness and apprehension. Her home is modern and lovely: I stayed in the tiny recycled house mentioned in the description. There were quite a few other travellers and workers in the house. We shared chores, meals, and day trips, which was really fun. The work was very interesting. I helped her to edit some of the book she is writing. Work parameters evolved in a very organic way, and this really suited my personality. She allows creativity and self-direction."
"Where do I even begin to find the words for how wonderful Eva and her surrounding community are? You gave me so much love and a priceless opportunity to engage in truly gratifying and meaningful work. Through this, I found a window to discover more about my own capabilities and confidence to put them to work in the future. I am so blessed and grateful! It is a beautiful house where good vibes prevail and magic just happens."
"I arrived on Eva's doorstep a very jetlagged and lost backpacker. I had planned to stay for a week, but ended up staying four months! Eva is one of the most welcoming, fun, interesting, passionate and inspiring people I've ever met. I've thoroughly enjoyed working with her on lots of different Wellschool projects and it's great to see what we have achieved in just a few months. It's a very sociable house - there are always lots of people in and out, usually another Workawayer or two, sometimes someone renting a room. It's an ideal base to meet lots of people and explore Melbourne. I can't recommend Eva's place enough - you won't want to leave!!"
"I have never been part of such a loving, welcoming and open home in my life and met some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I helped Eva with the design and publishing of a book, which got printed while I was at the house which felt super rewarding. The food was awesome and the Sunday morning trips to the market were some of my highlights of the week."
