We recently moved from the Rockies in Canada to my childhood home in Kranj Slovenia with our dog Cujo. Kranj is centrally located between Bled and Ljubljana and perfect for those that love nature, mountains and lakes mixed with city life. We're renovating our house to run a bed & breakfast with our own fruit and vegetables and looking for help with our projects around the house or dog sitting for the right person/couple (giving us a chance to have a break).
The house is located just a short walk/bike/drive from the old town which is small but beautiful with cobble stone streets, cafe's, stores etc. A supermarket is just 800m up the hill from us. The area is really peaceful and you can see a bit of the river from the house and watch the ski jumpers practice on the mountain across from the house from your window. Just a 2 min walk takes you into the farm fields with views of the mountains in the background. In the opposite direction is a nice forest walk that leads into the city and a great cafe by the river.
Other than that, we both have extremely itchy feet and love to travel. We also ski and hike whenever we can. We love learning about:
Mateja - food, cooking, organic gardening, nutrition, sustainability, health, so much more....
Adam - house building and how things work, hockey, random facts, cultures/history & people, so much more...

Beautiful setting close to mountains, hikes, ski hills and sights like Ljubljana, Bled, Kranjska Gora. Opportunity to learn about the area, the food, places to see as well as gardening, building & maintenance. Between us we've worked and lived long term in New Zealand, Australia, Japan, all over Canada including a remote island just a few hundred km's away from Alaska as well as obviously Slovenia.
We are currently open to workaways all year around so the projects vary depending on the season but overall the projects we are working on are:
General help needed:
Paining (internal walls, doors, trims/skirting)
Sanding (old doors for ready re-painting)
Maintenance or handywork if you know how like changing door handles, sanding, wood work etc
Cleaning (around the yard, recycling, dusting inside, vacuuming, mopping, cleaning windows)
Helping keep Cujo entertained. He was rescued when he was 3 months old and has some funny quirks. He's a super active hunting dog mix with who knows what and love to fetch ball (he could do this all day). Otherwise he loves to snuggle in the evening or lay in a sunny spot in the day once he's burnt off his energy :) If you would be interested to look after him while we take a few days off that would be great too.
Spring of 2020 onwards we will do all of the above as well as:
Garden work (weeding, planting, soil care, harvesting)
Yard work (lawn moving, weeding, planting, creating garden beds and maintenance)
Tree care (pruning our apple, pear, plum, cherry, walnut, nectarine, berry and grape trees)
Food processing for our home (cleaning fruit, canning fruit, making juice, making jams and jellies, drying herbs)
English and Slovene, some Spanish
Private bachelor suite with small kitchenette and bathroom. Easy access to public transport and we have a bike you can use. If we're going out you're more than welcome to join and the same applies for hiking, trips etc
Lake Bled and Bohinj are just 25min away and stunning areas where you can explore on foot or by bike. Around the house there are walking trails that lead to fields or small hikes. Ljubljana is just 25 minutes away, Postojnska Caves about 45 mins, Kranjska Gora is about 30 mins, and not to mention the Adriatic sea is just 1.5 hours away.
