Hello, dear workawayers :) ...we are a family of 2 (Martina, 39 & Sophia, 7) and we live in Upper Austria near the Lake Attersee in a town (about 13000 inhabitants). We live in a flat and it just needs a few minutes by foot to be in the nature (wood, river where you even can go swimming). A city bus near the home takes you to town.
Sophia and I are interested in other people and cultures, we like to go outside in the nature, to go swimming, listening to music and to make music (we both learn to play the cello) We like to cook in a healthy way (vegetarians and vegans are welcome).
We have two cats.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
You are welcome to be part of our small family for some weeks, get to know austrian culture and I can help to learn German. We live in a beautiful landscape where you can discover a lot of beautiful places (lakes, mountains, World Heritage Site Hallstatt, saltmines...).
I go to work 20 hours per week. Because I don‘t have holidays as long as my daughter has summer holidays (6th July to 8th September) I need especially help for child care & help in the household/shopping in this time. And maybe sometimes in the evening, in I want to hear a concert.
If you already speak some German, my daughter would be glad because she only speaks German. And it would be great if you can stay at least 3 or 4 weeks so my daughter must not say goodbye too fast.
You will sleep in an own room where you can retire. Take your personal things with you and we‘ll share the rest you need with you.
And we would be happy if you would eat with us.
There are a lot of things to do in our town or you can go by train to other cities (Salzburg, Linz, Hallstatt). You can go hiking or swimming. For weekend-trips you can even go by Train to Munich, Vienna, Prague, the Adriatic Shore, Venice....
