If you like peace and the tranquility of the countryside, you are able to experience it with me (middle-aged woman), my foster son 18 (German, foster cared by me) and some animals. I understand German language (My foster son's native language), but me myself prefer to communicate in English (Or Finnish ;)! ) At home we speak mostly "FinGelisch ;)!
We are living in the small farm. We have three donkeys, horse, pony and four dogs and one cat at the moment.
If you are interested, please take contact so I will tell more by mail!
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
For volunteer's help there is no any regular times like example from 8 am. to 13 pm etc, but just some duties during the days. So many different things to do...- I will need help with the animals, like feeding, brushing at times and clean the horse's and donkey's barns. Would be great if you have skills to make a light riding with our horse...he loves it, but at the moment we do not have time enough by ourselves.
-Home duties, cooking, baking...sometimes make the snow work even. Other gardening is not possible in winter time...!
Driver's licence is necessary!
Sometimes take care of two lovely twinboys 6-years old (my grandchildren)
Difficult to say the exact time hours/day... more and less. Very flexible.
English, Finnish, German
Own nice room. Living like the member of family.
No public transport, but the car to use if you have the driver's lisence!
We are living in rural areas in the very small village. No street lights...
The nearest villageshop is in 10 kms. Nearest towns in 35 and 65 kms. Closest cities are Pieksämäki in 37 kms, little bigger Mikkeli in 75 kms.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
You can experience Finnish clean and pure nature...silence, fresh air. The place, where the birds still are singing :)!
Besides these, we here by ourselves already are two different nationalities and from a bit different cultures (Finnish, German). We have met many different nationalities through the years -easy to see we humans are similar everywhere, -only cultures and manners are different. Don't let it be distressing and rigorous -take this an experience.
