With Rayne I had an amazing time, even during winter I had the chance to learn about Permaculture. She helped me a lot to reach the village (it's in the middle of nowhere, quite hard to reach it, you only need to ask). The task are suitable for volunteers that just want to tear down invasive trees with an axe and build things, and for those who want to be creative and do artistic tasks, cook, plant flowers and clean the project. The host is able to communicate: a not so common ability on worldpackers. You just need to be able to spend a lot of time alone, apart from that I completely recommend!

This was a truly rewarding experience! The work you put into this project will have a lasting effect on yourself, and hopefully the host and local community. Rayne is a wonderful host, with a vast knowledge on the local culture. She took me to Yambol and treated me to a Bulgarian meal! The town is in a remote area, but the project pets are really good company. You can also hike to and explore a nearby Village, or take a minibus to a bigger town. I would love to visit again in the spring or summer time!

The village is away from big cities so this is the perfect moment to connect with nature and learn a lot about permaculture. The host will make time to show you the real Bulgarian culture and the village. It's necessary that you love animals, there will be dogs and the project to pet. This is a cool experience and you will have time to explore Bulgaria or even Istanbul.

This is a place to enjoy nature, learn about Bulgarian culture and understand the importance of permaculture. It's important that you love animals, there will be 3 beautiful dogs ready to be petted and 4 the project that will eventually trust you. You will have your own room with everything that you need. Christine is very flexible the project schedule of work, so as you comunicate and agreed, you will have time to travel Bulgary or even explore Istanbul. I highly recommend this experience.

Se encuentra en una pequeña villa en medio de la naturaleza. La estadía fue muy agradable en convivencia con Rayne, sus gatos y su perro, ella es una persona accesible en cuanto a los horarios y días de descanso. Siempre intento explicarnos acerca de la cultura en Bulgaria y cuidado del medioambiente. Su cordialidad fue expansiva en todos los aspectos, nos proporciono una habitación cómoda y la comida era buena.
