    Description

    Hello and Welcome travelers, adventurers, artists, musicians, couples, singles and families.

    My name is Adam (36). I have 2 sons (1,5 and 4) who stay with me sometimes. I used to be a traveler, vagabond and traveling volunteer too, so I guess I understand many 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. Less in the autumn and winter. Cleaning, organizing, construction work, burning old branches and leaves, cooking for yourself, house-sitting, keeping fire in the stove (once in 2 days: semi-automatic coal central heating), 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.

    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's a bike you can use.

    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
    Railway station:
    13 km (Gryfów Śląski)
    45 km (Jelenia Góra)
    Other cities nearby: Świeradów Zdrój (11 km), Lubań, Zgorzelec (Goerlitz)
    Airports nearby:
    Wrocław 140 km (2-3 h by car)
    Prague (CZ)
    Berlin (DE)

    Smoking and occasional alcohol are ok.
    Cigarettes only outside please.
    No hard drugs.

    Preferred minimum period of stay: 2 weeks, but 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.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    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. At the moment, I haven't hosted Workawayers yet, so it's not 100% clear how to furbish the living area. Feel free to ask any questions in advance.
    * heating
    * 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.

    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.
