  • Description


    We are two girls - me (50yo) and my daughter (17yo). We travelled abroad and learned about different cultures. We also participated in projects as volunteers, so we decided to continue as a host-family. I am an English teacher, work at school, I'm a choir conductor as well.
    We live 1 hour by minibus from metro station. Quite a beautiful place, - hills, lakes, forest.
    Now there is no possibility for long stay/work. Our current situation is like this - we can host you for 2-3-4 days with no need to work, just be our guest! Girls preferably. (hot turkish guys, sorry...)
