  • Description


    Hello, we are a young family of four living in Calgary, AB currently looking for workawayers. (July has been filled:-)

    My husband and I have two children, a boy who is 7 and a girl who is 8. My husband works full time and I have gone back to University part-time. We love animals and have a dog, a cat, a gargoyle gecko, numerous fish, two bunnies and a gerbil.

    Our home is located near Fish Creek Provincial Park and the Bow River. There are miles of pathways in a beautiful natural setting to enjoy 5 minutes from us. City Transit (bus) is available close to the house as well.

    We enjoy life and are a fun family. We go downhill skiing in the winter and camping in the summer. On your days you have off feel free to explore places in and around Calgary. We can make suggestions or help with logistics of how to get to different places.

    You will need to be fluent in English as throughout the day you'll be communicating with myself and the children.

    Both my husband and I cook and the meals we eat are homemade and are enjoyed together! You are welcome to make meals though this is not a requirement.
