    Description

    STARTING IN SPRING 2021:
    We have a second house that needs renovations. In this house there is a fully furbished livingroom, kitchen and bathroom for the workawayer(s). Also we will start the garden end of January, where we have lots of fruits and vegetables. Ideal would be a couple because it's a very remote place and we have no internet connection (yet). Ofcourse one person is also welcome if they like the peace and quiet.

    If you are staying at the second house, you should be able to provide some of the food for yourself.

    We are a family of 6 members, our house is situated on a hill in a little village near Karlovac, Croatia. There is a river for swimming few kilometers from our house, seaside is an hour and a half car ride away. Our kids are age 28, 26, 23 and 19. The youngest child lives with us, and the older ones come to visit every once in a while. Also, my father is sometimes around, he is 87 years old.
    My husband and I have travelled a lot and now we welcome travellers from all around the world to share experiences and make friends.
    We have 1 dog, 2 cats, and chickens so travellers with pets are welcome, if they get along with other animals.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We would like to show you how you can live and travel with a small amount of money, without hurry and stress. We would teach you how to live in nature, work with animals and gardens, how to make small repairs around the house. We are also beekepers so if you are not afraid of bees we can teach you how to work with bees and get honey. I also make homemade jams and juices and I know much about herbs and medical plants so if you are interested I would also teach you that and more.
    We are religious so if you are too, we can share thoughts and experiences in that field.

  • Help

    Help

    We need help with mowing the lawn, keeping the backyard and garden in order (planting vegetables and flowers, mowing etc) and small repairs around the house (helping with fixing a fence for ex.)..
    I also plan on making two places around the house for relaxing, so I could use some help with making a diy bench and table, and maybe a gazebo.
    We expect you to work, 4 or max 5 hours a day, never more than 5 days a week.

    In the upcoming months (from April to Septmeber 2021) we will need somebody who can mow the lawn with a mowing machine (trimmer) and use a chainsaw.
    We could also use somebody who has experience in woodworking and construction.
