  • Description

    Description

    We Herbert and Oliva are a retired couple living in the northern mountain range of Veracruz, away from the beaten path, at the edge of a small town (aprox. 9 000 inhabitants). I am German and my wife is Mexican. We are well traveled and still travel a lot.
    Our house is on 15 000 m2 fenced land and there is always something to do with maintainance, gardening and carpentry. I am a hobby carpenter myself.
    We have 5 dogs (a pair of german shepherds and 2 frenchpoodle females (mini) and a Fox Terrier) So you should love dogs and can get along with them.
    We have a couple of employees living in a separate house on the ground.
    We live in a very nice region, which offers excellent opportunities for hiking and sightseeing.
    The town we live in, has bus service from Mexico City and Tulancingo. Tulancingo is the next bigger town (about 2.5 hours away).
    We love to know people from different backgrounds and cultures and to learn from them.
    DISIRED PROFILE
    Some experience in carpentry and general maintainance would be great, as also some experience in WEB site design.
    We accept one work awayer or a couple.
    We have no preconception regarding age.

    WHAT YOU SHOULD CONSIDER
    An international health care insurance policy, valid through the length of your stay.
    Some sturdy shoes and long pants when working in the garden.
    Some warmer clothes. In the evening it´s getting a bit cool, as we are about 2 200 m high in the mountains.
    Depending on the time span you are visiting us, some raincoats. You better check with us for some more detailed recommendations, once you are accepted.
    If you smoke, you should do this outsides and dispose the remainings in the garbage.
    Moderate drinking is no problem, excess will be. No drugs allowed.

    General maintainance work, carpentry (some furniture) and gardening. If it’s a couple, some housekeeping from the couple (cooking and clean up). 5 hours a day Monday to Friday, although we may be flexible on it. You may accumulate hours and take one more day off for sightseeing etc. In exchange you get free accommodation and food. Normally Mexican cuisine, but sometimes I cook german food. If you prefer, you can also use the kitchen and cook something for yourself. We like to learn new recipes.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are many possibilities for hiking and sightseeing in our región but you should be good on feet if hiking! Public transportation (bus) takes you into the next largest town (Tulancingo) in a 2 hours drive. From there on you have conncections all over the country. The same applys to direct conection by bus to Mexico City. This bus only leaves once a day.
    Sometimes we will take you for a trip to show you arround and to see some interesting places.
