    Description

    My name is Vlad and I am a 30 years old professional in the IT industry offering a fantastic opportunity for young people to learn English, experience both touristic and traditional Irish landscape and share stories from allover the world.Apart from English I speak a bit of Spanish and French and looking to learn Portuguese

    I am well traveled having lived in 12 countries so far, also being experienced host. I have been recieving guests through other websites for 3 years now and ran a hostel for 6months. I have made some great friends along the way. I am well educated, have travelled all over the World and I enjoy helping or mentoring people who are visiting or planning to visit Ireland.

    I am a liberal person who appreciates people of a similar nature who want to learn about the world, care about people and want to learn more about themselves. I like music of all genres, watching documentaries, polytical affairs, psychology, philosophy, reading, anything technical, IT, like a good laugh and of course having as much fun as life allows me.

    This may be an opportunity someone who has an interest in uptown Bucharest, big city life who is planning to come to the Bucharest soon or is already in the Romania to settle and having difficulties with their current situation. I am certainly not part of a traditional family, don't live on a farm, don't run a B&B and have no children (that I know about) :-)

    As me and my partner have very busy schedules we're looking for someone to help us with a few things:

    - cleaning and ironing: we're very clean people that prefer an immaculate environment. Fresh linen, spotless kitchen and bathroom. I also wear quite a lot of shirts and ties. I tend to hate taking those to dry cleaners and even for this sometimes I don't have the time.

    - shopping. I can teach you about fine dining (big Gordon Ramsay foodie) and fine drinks so you know what to buy and how to cook. You'll learn to differentiate between "quality" and "expensive", having very good treats doesn't need to cost a lot of money

    - cycling or swimming (optional) I'm quite self-conscious about health and sitting in the office the whole day does require some compensation in the mornings or weekends. I am part of some groups but joining with a friend is always a better laugh

    I like to live my life without any hassles. Me and my partner are both hard-working people who work from home and need help around the house.

    I certainly would like a new apprentice if this is more what you are looking for, you could occasionally help me with my business which is home based and Business/IT/Technology related. Would like to hear from long term Workawayers who want to live in Romania for 2 months + or maybe want to settle here eventually.

    We have a task list/rota which is quite simple to follow. Involves daily housekeeping tasks, acting as my personal assistant and other simple tasks. However, these tasks are not that time consuming, so you would have plenty of time to spend on your own or to explore the area on your own.


    I would say that I prefer independent, open minded people. Age isn't important to me but from past experience I would suggest that if you need your parent's permission to travel, are not very independent or rely on your family for financial or emotional support whilst travelling, then perhaps I'm not the best host for you and a more traditional host family would suit you better.

    It's quite a hectic life I'm living, very outdoorsy, enjoy some nightlife as well so I would consider this before you message me as I would much prefer people who come here with the right expectations.

    If you are interested, please email me with a description of yourself and what your plans are.

    I tend to normally have a preference for longer term friendships here (people who are not backpacking and want to stay for more than 1 month) and my standards are quite high :-) I will strive to respond to messages, even if I can’t help you out. These days I receive lots of messages, so please don't take it personally if I can’t always accommodate.

    Accommodation

    I cook couple of times a week and eat fresh food in the house. My former guests normally eat their evening meal with with me and you can also buy your own food to eat for lunch or during the day. If you are accustomed to eating specific types of food or meal times, then please ask me more about my diet before deciding on me as a host.

    There is a sofa available in the lounge for our guests to sleep on and bedding is provided.

    This is not a small apartment but everything is Shared here and there is Little Privacy. All the facilities are Shared including all the Rooms, Kitchen and Bathroom.

    I always try my best to tell those who contact me as much as I can about me before they arrive. Feel free to ask me any direct questions that you may have and I will give you direct honest answers :-)

    What else ...

    Bucharest is a wonderful city packed with history and attractions you'll have access to in walking distance as I live right in the city centre. That is right, no hour long bus rides or train and little restrictions when it comes to going out in the old town for the night.
