Volunteer exchange in Scotland – I’m Sam. I live in a stupidly beautiful rainforest on the sea. I live in a wonderful studio I build myself 30 years ago and have recently renovated it. It’s busy – trees to plant, logs to collect, DIY always lurking in the background, paths to maintain, beaches to clean, veg to grow, hens, cats… I have two nice caravans which have all you need. One for a couple and another for a single. I provide food, and bake bread almost daily – we eat lunch together and cook independently at night.

Trees to plant, woodland paths to maintain, logs to collect, DIY always lurking in the background, beaches to clean, veg to grow, hens to care for, cats to enjoy… I expect the caravans to stay in good order, but besides that have a good time!
