AUTUMN UPDATE: [Feel free to drop me a message, even if it's a copy-paste. I will answer if I can help you. Apologies for not having answered all of you my friends, but recent time has been quite busy and demanding, so couldn't focus on Hosting]
Hello and Welcome travelers, adventurers, artists, musicians, couples, singles and families.
My name is Adam (38). I have 2 sons (3 and 5) who stay with me typically at the weekends. I used to be a traveler, vagabond and traveling volunteer too, so I guess I understand some of your needs.
I live in a house with garden in the countryside, in the south-west corner of Poland, nearby a forest and mountains. A lot of possibilities for trekking, hiking, relaxing,.
There's some help to do in the garden and in the house.
Cleaning, organizing, cutting grass, construction work, burning old branches and leaves, cooking for yourself, house-sitting, keeping fire in the stove, staying with the children sometimes (ONLY if you want to).
I work in another city. Sometimes I'm at home, sometimes not. It is important for me that the house is not empty for a long time.
There's a cat in the house. More in the garden than i house actually.
You can use my music instruments if you want (electronic piano, guitars). I can teach you basics of music and Polish language.
You can use my tools for work or for your hobby.
I have a car, so I can help you with transportation.
There is an independent social centre (theater, arts, yoga, permaculture) just 1km from my house. You will meet friends there. They are also on Workaway as hosts.
Supermarket, pharmacy. bus stop: 1,5 km
13 km (Gryfów Śląski)
45 km (Jelenia Góra)
Other cities nearby: Świeradów Zdrój (11 km), Lubań, Zgorzelec (Goerlitz)
Wrocław 140 km (2-3 h by car)
Smoking and occasional alcohol are ok.
Cigarettes only outside please.
No hard drugs.
I tend to be introvert, socially awkward, odd, direct and straightforward, which is sometimes perceived as mad or rude. I try not to expand my own emotions upon the others. I can be respectful and empathetic too. I've been in a therapeutic process forever now, so I can understand many emotions, reasons and attitudes. My guest usually go along well with me: see feedback.
If you are a last-minuter or just surfing around and in need of a short-time host, feel free to drop me a line as well. I know that finding a host might be difficult at times, therefore I am not against copy-paste messages. However, when texting me, please personalize the message a bit, referring to my description, please include my name and at least one sentence saying why would you like to stay with me, so I know you read the whole thing.

This host offers a language exchange
I'm always keen on sharing language skills. I'm a native Polish speaker with fluent English and will be happy to teach you. I have some communication skills in other languages (ES, IT, FR, TR, DE) that i would like to develop if a chance occurs.
If you are a group, a couple or a family, you will share a room.
If you are a single person you will have your private bed (or sofa, matress) in one of the 2 bedrooms or in a living room. We will work towards providing the best possible living, sleeping and privacy conditions for my guests. Feel free to ask any questions in advance.
* shared bathroom (hot water, bathtub, toilet, separate toilet, washing machine)
* kitchen (gas cooker with oven, fridge, dishwasher)
* shared living area (workshop, hall, living room, kitchen
* working room
What else ...
I hope to become friends, so we can do short trips and sightseeing together. But if you appreciate your privacy, I will not interfere. However some interaction and open communication is required.
A little more information
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
Can host digital nomads
Unfortunately there is no cable connection at home and I connect through my mobile phone. I can share the connection when I am at home. It is enough for youtube or netflix, so should be enough for standard office work, however, if you're a streamer or attend video conferences you might wish to have your own connection (pre-paid simcards with some Gigabytes are pretty affordable). If you are going to stay for 2 months or more, or I start receiving workawayers I may think about dedicated Internet connection for you.
Space for parking camper vans
The garden is big. Enough parking place. We can pull an electricity wire to your van. Bathroom only at house. No external bathroom.
Can possibly accept pets
How many Workawayers can stay?
5h / 5 days. You will have a lot of free time
Love to all.
