    Description

    Dear Workawayer,

    I am a single Mom living in central Berlin. I have a lovely 21-month-old daughter who literally delights everyone. I am looking for someone who is warm hearted, very responsible and reliable.

    >>>>> LAST MINUTE: Currently I am looking for someone in Berlin <<<<<<<

    I am an acrobat and magician which I take very seriously. This has been my only income for the last 10 years.

    I am looking forward to welcoming you into my home. <3

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You might be expected to come with me while babysitting. This also gives you the importunity to see some cool places - others than you might expect, but a deep insight into German culture and life. I am an artist, so you might also see me training, dancing or performing. It will be exhausting (at least for me) but also loads of fun. :-D

    During the week most of the work I do is planning, organizing and everything else that needs to be done. Even though I am a circus artist, I am down to earth. I try to live a responsible and caring life but I don't do extreme veganism, minimalism, no-waste, etc.
    And my balcony is not an urban farm. It is just a balcony with the occasional flower and maybe some laundry.

    I am a multiskilled person. Ask me if you want to learn something specific. If I cannot teach it, I usually know where you can learn.

    >>>>> BERLIN lots of stuff to do!

    If you have netflix and like to improve your German skills, I enjoy watching series in the evening together. ;-)

    You are expected to do some cleaning & housework, babysit my daughter while I perform and help with other projects 20-25h a week for free accommodation and food.

    You will take care of my daughter while I work. You will have a good experience if you genuinely love spending time with kids and if babysitting is an easy task for you. I will set up a schedule together with you before you come to our home. Be sure when you come you agree to the schedule and stick to it. At the moment it will be mostly on the weekends, mostly Saturdays and sometimes picking my daughter up at the Kita.

    During the day my daughter goes to kindergarten. Your job will be to take her there in the morning at around 8-8:45 am (5-15min walk) and to take care of her on Saturdays - maybe go on a fun trip? I am very open to suggestions for Saturdays.

    CURRENT PROJECTS:

    Logo design and other design work is becoming more and more urgent. Please send me a link to your website with previous work if you like to help with design.

    In the long term I am looking for a someone with design skills as well, logo design, posters, corporate design, website design (no html, only design - I need a amazing new design which I can then turn into html) - a couple would be perfect.

    I am also looking for someone who knows how to construct and build metal work. A certified welder with an engineering background maybe? I am also happy to learn how to weld.

    Accommodation

    My home is a central apartment in Berlin. You will get a lovely loft bed (160*200cm).

    If you wish, I can also provide food and meals for you.

    I lead a very healthy and fresh lifestyle, please talk to me about the details of your nutrition plan, etc. so I can plan accordingly. :-) I do eat meat, but I am happy to host vegetarians and vegans.

    I have a washing machine and wifi.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It is essential that you are very respectful, responsible, tidy and VERY clean.

    I am looking for someone who wants to stay several months. Please state how long you want to stay. Please indicate if you have a drivers licence (yes or no) and if you do which one (B,BE,C,CE). We travel a lot.

    If you stay with us while we change locations, you don't need to worry about transportation. We make sure you come with us!

    In Berlin I recommend that you get a monthly or 30-day (zone AB) BVG-ticket for public transportation. Yes, there are controls and yes you will get a fine if you don't have a ticket.

    You get free wifi in each U-Bahn station in Berlin.




    Some German culture advice:

    Germans are very correct and detailed oriented. Compared to other countries Germans usually buy extremely high quality stuff which is very expensive and easy to break. Because they have paid such a high price for it, they take extremely good care of it. They clean it very often and thorough so it does not get old and lasts as long as possible since Germans might not be able to afford a new one once something breaks. So even if something looks old to you, you better take very good care of it because it still might be the best someone has. This applies to everything even though Germans are only famous for their cars.

    In other countries it is much harder to break stuff because it doesn't break as easily and it is much easier and cheaper to replace stuff. Not so in Germany!
    Germans appreciate and value the effort you take in keeping other people's stuff tidy, neat and orderly. They will think of you as a good person.
