Klara as she says is a little shy at first but soon grows in confidence and is great to be around sharing some wonderful conversations, a really bright intelligent girl. Good at her jobs doing them quietly and efficiently and in her spare time loved to be out and about a natural traveller. Good luck klara and hope to see you soon maybe in more

Everything has been written by other volunteers previously.
I just would like to thank this family the extra things what I got. Before the trip I didn't want to speak any english I was very shy. This volunteering job made me speak english more. I returned home and after 2 months I have just realised that I dare to speak english. This trip taught more

Thanks a lot, I miss you so much! I really felt like part of this sweet and lovely family. It was so amazing to stay with you.

Marlene is a very happy fun loving girl who is always cheerful and positive. Marlene was quick to learn the jobs and good at them and in her free time was always planning walks and trips off. We all hope to see you again soon Marlene. A big thank you
Sylvia was a fantastic helper and great company around our busy little B&B. Sylvia was happy relaxing with a good book or having a trip off. Every now and then you get really lucky with workaway and get a 5 star helper and Sylvia was definitely one of those. We were all sad to see her go but look forward to seeing her again one day. Oh and Sylvia more

I had a beautiful time there and I loved the place and the family I lived with. They were very kind with me and I never forget my days there.
It has been a good experience because I worked but also I had free time and the possibility to visit cities and towns.
I hope I will go to meet Richard and his family again!

It was an absolute pleasure to have Anja stay with us and we were all sad when she left. A great help all the time, always thinking ahead and offering to help out with anything. Anja planned many trips off making every minute of her stay count. I hope other hosts are lucky enough to have Anja come and stay with them. Thank you and good luck Anja

I spent a wonderful time in Great Britain and felt there like being a new member of the family. When I needed help with anything I knew that I could always ask them, even when I had to leave earlier than expected, they helped me find an earlier flight.
It was my first workaway experience I had and they really made me enjoy it! I would definitely more
