  • Description


    I live together with my -years-old son, Bogumil. We live in a beautiful place in South - East of Poland. It's a small village "at the end of the world" - we have a small wooden house, a garden when we grow vegetables, some fruit trees and a piece of field and meddow.

    Our place is situated at the edge of the village, near the wood. We try to live in a simple way, as close to the nature as possible. I also work part-time as a psychotherapist. I loves yoga and meditation, dancing and singing and making fire. Bogumil is 8 right now, he likes contact with people, talking and playing.

    I've bought an old house which needs renovation and try to make this place our ideal home, and that requires a lot of work to be done.

    I need help with my kid - to stay with him sometimes when I'm at work. There's a lot of work in the garden during the gardening season. We also need help in renovation - repairing some things, cleaning, woodwork (furniture) and general maintaining the whole area.

    We have a room for guests on the attic where you can stay. The room is very simple, just a place to sleep. When it's warm enough, you can also sleep in a tent. During the daytime, feel free to spend time in our room or the kitchen and become a member of the family. At the moment we don't have a shower, we use a bath . And we use a compost toilet - it's important for you to know that.
