    Description

    Hello!

    My name is Valeria, I am 26 years old. Currently I am living with my mother and 4 lovely dogs in the countryside of Puebla. I just returned from some time traveling and I am looking for an English native speaker to help us improve our skills and who can help us around the house. French/ German native speakers are also welcome since I would like to learn those languages.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I believe that from everyone that crosses my path in life I learn something. If you share this idea, you will definitely benefit from staying with us. I love to exchange stories, views of life as well as any other knowledge.
    Other than that you will spend a good time here with easy work, open-minded hosts and some adorable pets.

    Besides, you will try delicious mexican food and experience what real Mexico is about. I could help you with tips of things to do around the state and how to move around. We have some archeological sites, museums and a historical hacienda near us.

    Help

    Your main task is to teach me French, English or German and helping us around the house. We are looking for someone experienced with dogs (at least a little bit so you are not scared when they bark or play). For the remaining time your help is appreciated in cleaning, gardening or walking the dogs.

    I am very flexible regarding duties and schedules, and in return I ask for your flexibility as well. I would suggest we make a weekly plan and use this as a base which can be adjusted flexibly -> Communication is Key!
    If you have any other skills that you think we could benefit from, yoga skills, photography, piano, etc. please offer them to me, I am very open minded and eager to learn!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Generally, I love to meet new people, go on adventures, telling stories....
    I also learned to enjoy the silence, whether it is alone or in company. I believe that there is nothing wrong with just cuddling yourself up with a good book or your favourite music and a hot cup of tea.

    The most important thing for a stressless "Workaway" in my opinion is communication. With honesty and respect towards each other I am sure we will have a great time together. Whatever we do, we ideally make it out of self-motivation. Therefore I harmony best with independent individuals who look around and see what they can contribute (e.g. if you see the floors are dirty, or the garbage bin is full, you take care of it)

    I describe myself as a very understanding and helpful person. So if you're having a bad day, just let me know and we can talk about it or adjust the plan. Please note that I don't enjoy making rules, I expect that everyone treats the other and his belongings the way he likes to be treated. However, after a few experiences I had to make some rules which I will tell you upon arrival or request.

    Public Transportation is quite particular here in Mexico, it s extremely cheap but is not very reliable regarding time. The bus station is in 5 mins walking distance and you can use a bicycle to explore around.
