Hippohelp assists travellers in living for free in peoples homes across the globe, in exchange for helping out with various tasks, mainly in the garden.
Leopold Huber created Hippohelp, while living with his wife in Guilin, China, a smaller city with beautiful scenery and lush land where they grow passion-fruits, tomatoes, carrots, beans and potatoes.
Guilin is a popular tourist destination, which led to the thought that travellers would be interested in helping in exchange for free food and accommodation.
