Hello everyone !
My name is Melody and I am a French girl currently living in Lausanne with my partner and our dog Pepito.
I have been travelling the world for a few years as a digital nomad and I am currently developing a website for language learning, and also a new immersive language program in Switzerland.
I did so many Workaways over the past years that I thought it would be a great way to get help for my website while giving back to some fellow travelers who want to discover Switzerland !
Help with Computers / internet
During you stay, you will be able to discover the city of Lausanne.
There is a lot of museum that you can visit, you can swim in the lake in the summer, hike in the UNESCO vineyard, enjoy the snow in the winter, visit all the surrounding Swiss cities or even cross the Geneva lake with the ferry to visit the city of Evian on the French side of the lake.
Also when I am not working, I will be more than happy to show you around and maybe take the car to go visit something further away. Even if I have been living here for 2 years, I love doing touristic stuff and discover new things in this region.
Also during the evening we love to cook so we could have nice dinner together, have a movie night, play games (we organize quite often game nights with a couple of friends) and we also like to go out in the city to have a few drinks so you'll be more than welcome to come with us.
If you are interested in learning French I could also teach you since I'm a French teacher :)
This host offers accommodation and payment.

- Yoga / fitness instructor
If you are a yoga or fitness instructor you can stay at my place and teach me yoga once a day :)
And maybe some other some job that I might need …
You will not work more than 4 hours per day. It would be most likely 3h in the morning, and then we can have a 30 minutes session every evening to prepare the next day. So you will have the whole afternoon as free time, and also the weekend. I am very flexible regarding the working hours so if you prefer working in the evening it's also fine :)
You will have your own private room in our flat to sleep at night. During the day, this room is my office so might use it to skype my clients, but you can use the rest of the flat which is quite big.
We have a large living room with an open kitchen, and also a veranda which has a view on the forest and the lake in the distance. It’s well furnished with couch, table and barbecue, so that’s the best place in the summer to have dinner or chill during the day.
Since we have 2 bathroom, you will have your own private bathroom as well.
The apartment is located 20 minutes away from the center with public transportation. There is not much around to be honest, because it's a residential area, but the bus station is just down the apartment building and the subway station 4 stops away. Meaning you can be at the lake in less than 30 minutes.
Also you might know that Switerzland is a super expensive country ... I have been travelling on a budget myself so just so you know that a daily transportation card is 9.-CHF (which is approximately 9$ per day) and you probably have to take that into account when coming here. However, my boyfriend and I will be more than happy to drive you somewhere during the weekend so you can explore other parts of Switzerland.
