My husband Rafa is 38 years old and works as economist. He is really clean and tidy which makes life very easy at home. He also practices sports on a daily basis. Our daughters go to primary school which is 5 minutes walking from our home. They like to go dancing twice a week and we would like you to take them to their dance classes. They love also singing and make up themselves, all kind of sports… Paula is 7 years old . She also enjoys reading and writing and she is looking forward to speak in English and practice all the vocabulary she is learning in the school. Martina is a 5 years old girl who enjoy learning the same as her sister! We also like spending some “quiet” time at home, when everyone enjoy their own space, reading, cooking, watching movies, etc. That means that you will have plenty of time to enjoy yourself at your convenience.

Area: Austin, TexasHello Hello - We are Dwight and Jessica from Austin USA. We just finished 9 months of traveling in the South Pacific and South East Asia. Now we've settled down and would love to share our creative space with you! We used workway to travel to farms in Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, and Malaysia and now need your help to turn our place into the same creative homes we stayed in across the world. We enjoy Workaway because it allows for the cultural and life skills exchange we both cherish. We need some help building and maintaining gardens- fixing bikes and building a creative outdoor space around us.
