We are now traveling through Australia since October 3rd. We go from place to place thanks to the website HelpX, which is a web listing of people needing a hand and people willing to work a few hours a day in exchange for food and board.
We stayed 7 weeks in Bondi, at Lance’s, rebuilding his kitchen with a used one, gardening, learning about organic gardening, plant-based diet (see the article My vegan life in Bondi), and other subjects related to the environment and the world.
Then, we went at Swami’s yoga retreat where we stayed for almost 2 months (from November 21st to January 16th, 2017). That was a great experience for me because I taught yoga in English, which was a double challenge: teaching yoga, which I was new at, and teaching yoga in English, because I had never done it before.
From January 16th to February 4th, we went on a road trip with 4 other friends from Swami’s, from Sydney onto the Great Ocean Road.
After a week rest in a northern neighborhood of Melbourne, we flew to Tasmania on February 12th to help a family of 5 on their ginger brewery and daily routine.
