Come see a birds eye view of the Cariboo , the interior region of BC
I am a pilot/pizza maker, and I need help in the kitchen or keeping house and yard clean , I need people to share the work load of the cafe with me, and to keep an eye on the place while I am away on flying jobs during the summer
in the winter i often leave the country to do other flying work and try to find people to look after my house and pizza shop when I’m gone
In the springtime we do garden work potting seeds and planting a small garden in the nursery that is next door
My home is located half a block away from the cafe where there is an extra room for you to stay.
Sometimes you share a room with other travellers , but usually you have your own room , it is a waterfront home, and there is a boat there for you to use with plenty of fish in the lake !
in the summer from May until September there may be opportunities for you to join me on flying trips , however in the winter the float plane is taken out of the water since the lakes freeze over from december till April
hope you manage to make a visit and explore some of the most pristine parts of BC

The pizza cafe is more like our home , where we greet friends and customers in a small town where we have been serving locals for the past 14 years ,
Some workaway visitors adapt well in the winter months and find things to do , while others prefer to sit in the cafe all day on their computers ,
if you are looking for a lot of excitement there isn’t really a lot going on here when the weather is cold it can get quite boring to sit around ,
The summer is another story , the weather is always great , and there's lots more to do ))
We never expect visitors to do anything to difficult , actually it's more up to you what you want to learn , we offer min wage in partial exchange for meals and accommodations
We welcome you to our home and hope you enjoy our modest accommodations
We will gladly discuss any other terms in advance of your arrival , if you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask
we like to have extra people here when we get busy in the summer , sometimes there's a lot to do to keep things clean and be prepared
it's nice to meet new and interesting people from different countries , to make friends and share new ideas ,

In the winter months mainly locals visit us in the cafe to have a pizza , drink some beer or wine , and play pool , It's a normal winter day )

We always need help in the house and greenhouse - just trying to keep our places organized and clean ,
