We are a german-icelandic family (parents, 2 boys in the age 5&7, 3 cats, aupair) living in Laugarvatn located between UNESCO heritage Þingvellir and the famous Geysir-area. It´s a small place 60km from Reykjavík. Here is a swimmingpool, a Spa and a lake.
I work as a touristguide so it´s a good possibility for you to learn something about Iceland and its people. We will have an aupair over summertime living with us too - perhaps you can go together on trips?
Meals will be eaten together with all familymembers as worktime permits.
Need someone between 12.-26.05.19 - for a week or longer
and again 2.-12.07.19 - for a week days
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
You can learn how icelandic families live between town and countryside, two languages spoken somtimes in one sentence ;-)
If you want to know about icelandic culture from the very beginning to today - I can tell you. If you want to learn about geology and icelandic nature - your´re in the right place.
I need some help with recreating my garden, build a fence around our lot and paintwork around house and garden.
It´s not hard work, but you need to do it precisely - I will help as time permits.
You will have your own appartment in the garage with private facilities - it´s normally rent out to tourists.
It would be perfect for a couple.
We´re having breakfast in the morning with the kids - not too early, lunch - with bread, food, leftovers and dinner in the early evening - cooked, baked, grilled. We eat meat and fish - directly from the farmer and vegetables, fruits.
National park Þingvellir - 25km
Geysir, Gullfoss - 30km
Swimmingpool & Spa in Laugarvatn
No problem to hitchhike and perhaps it´s possible to get a car for a trip. (Depends on your driving experience and availability)
Selfoss - 38km
Reykjavík - 60km (we´re going there almost daily)
All this is possible to do in a day trip or just in the evening, when most tourists are gone...
We had aupairs for 6 years now, moved here to the countryside and need some help around the house. I have no experience with workaway yet, but it can´t be that different. I expect from you to be honest, in a good mood and follow the house rules, take care of your room. It´s a non-smoking household.
