I am looking for a family living in a francophone country such as France, Begium, Morocco, Tunisia with whom I would live <en famille> during 2014 for a number of weeks. I will contribute whatever I can to the family, especially gardening, shopping, cleaning, running errands, fixing things. In exchange I seek conversation exclusively in French. I prefer a family who speaks only French, as this will force me to speak exclusively in French.

I would like a challenging travel adventure accompanied by either one or two other persons. The challenge I have in mind is to travel in two landrovers or on motor bikes across sub Saharan Africa from west to east. My preference is to start in Nouakshott in Mauretania and go more or less due east until arriving in Sudan, whereupon the direction would change to south east, arriving in Mombassa, Kenya. Is anyone interested in join me in such a challenge?
