Ann is an excellent cook and plenty of food will be available,We have a large sun-deck facing south down the river(sea)(fiord) and enjoy having a weekly bar-b-que, there's enough room on the deck and in the conservatory for 20 or more to have a party. but would lke volunteers ASP.

AND WE WLL REPLY WITH AVAILABLE DATES I HAVE ADDED BUILDING TO THE JOB LIST AS THERE ARE SOME JOBS A GENERAL BUILDER COULD DO-NOT BECAUSE WERE BUILDING ANTHING NEW, ! we are following workaway site rules, 5 days working, 5 hours, we now have 1 hour for breakfast from 8 til 9 work 9 til til 12, lunch, 12 til 1 then work 1 til 3. dinner is generaly a late dinner around 7 or 8 PM, USEFULL QUOTE FROM "workaway site- advice to hosts@ " Food is normally included in the exchange, and in most exchanges the tasks of cooking and clearing up are also SHARED. This means that you are not expected to prepare three meals a day for your volunteersers!" though we do-but appreciate help in doing so ! these hours were decided by the first workaways here, and are always subject to discussion. and are variable according to weather and mutual agreement ! we are also of the opinion that the other site guidance of "start with 5 days and then continue if both agree" is a good idea! though it's a very short time, it does allow each party to find out whether it's going to work, though if you're not a mickey taker we would envisage that a longer time would normally follow on. we don't follow folk around ,checking if they are working, as folk come here to help, and so expect them "to play the game"

Area: Croatia, SplitWe found a long term helper and won't need help for another year. Please don't send us your offers as we won't be able to host you or respond to your offers! Thanks! We are an easy-going married couple Renata (41) and Bango (53) living in Stobrec near Split. Bango works and I am unemployed at the moment. We've been married for 18 years. Our house is 10 min walk from the beach and 15 min walk from a nearby river Žrnovnica with a beautiful promenade. The climate is very nice with lots of "spring" days during winter and really hot summer. The area is ideal for windsurfing, hiking, running, swimming, diving etc. We are hikers and spend most weekends hiking (but not in summer, it's too hot). Split is a 1700 year old city that offers all in one - Diocletian's Palace (on the UNESCO's list of protected heritage), beautiful nature, night life, museums, entertainment and outdoor and indoor activities. With mountains in the north, islands in the south, coastal villages close to Split there's plenty to see and do during your stay here.
