  • Was noch ...

    If you have PAINTING AND/OR DECORATING-work to be done: contact me!

    I combine Workaway with covering distances on a bicycle.
    Staying in a family for 3 weeks is therefore to long: 7, 10 or 14 days is more realistic for my way of traveling.
    So, because of my rather short stay, it's timesaving to know from the beginning what type of work I can do ... and painting and decorating I can :-)
    I have very good experiences with working in this way. Look at the feedback and you will see people were happy :-) and I was happy too.

    It's also my experience that when the relationship concerning the work to be done, is fine, it's easier to get a nicer relationship in general. Important when you just stay for 7, 10 or 14 days!

    The reason I started working in this way is to avoid ending up in a situation hosts assume I will do the cooking, the household-jobs and the looking after the children (See my gender and age).
    Yes I'm still able to stay on a ladder. Yes I'm rather handy with tools.
    I don't like ending up in situations in witch children are looked after by a whole series of Workawayers and hosts assuming (Because of my age and gender) I will do the same.
    I like children, and doing activities together with them, a lot. But being an au-pair is not my piece of cake :-).
