  • Description


    *******Welcome, welcome travellers!*******
    We are waiting for one or two handy men or a couple from the beginning of January as we renovate a flat in Budapest in the city center. Working 3 good days per week there in a great team than 4 even better days of Nature on the Island.
    We offer our international, truly cool community (okay we are 2 now: hungarian and argentin), veeery good vegan meals and a lots of fun together. Great deep talks, open mind, swim in the river and quiet walks.

    Contact me if you feel interested!

    My family's home is the whole island. I have two adult sons. My interest is self development, now I need help to improve my closed enviroment for winter as I moved into this house not very long ago. I would like to learn French.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Creative and flexible minds and hands are warmly welcome!

    Our beautiful Szentendre-island is in the Danube, 40 min drive or 60 min train travel from Budapest and more historical, cultural values are to discover for you in the surrounding area. Experience peaceful nature, live slow and simple life, swim and kayak in the river, take an easy bike-ride, sleep in the garden and awake for sqarrels hide and seek, collect herbs. Have deep conversations about self development, get reflection about yourself.
    Our foods are vegetarian, can be gluten-free and also simple, that we make and eat together.

    If you seek for peace in your mind and soul, birds songs, walking alone on the fields, go deep in yourself, you can get all these here. I cannot offer internet, alcohol and loud parties.

    ><><><><><>Slowly we get ready for the winter, so a little more work in the garden is needed, but the more and more I am interested is to learn French from the very basics in september and october. <><><><><><><><><><

    In my beloved nest we need to make some isolating and firewood storage works for next winter as it is a summer weekend house, and shelves into the kitchen. I also have just created a tiny permaculture-garden that we can care about and develop. Learning french and experiencing community life is also my interest.

    Be able to work alone, be free to ask, be comfortable to enjoy what you do.

    I have workdays in Budapest, when you can join me and spend the day with discovering the city or stay home and do your daily challenge in the house.

    English is comfortable and basic for me. I am opened to teach, write and use it in many situations. French is a new love, I go very slowly in it. Its melody and difficulty is a beauty and a challenge for me at the same time. I start to get more and more motivated to develope it, so I am happy if I get the opportunity to practice it with you.

    One room is for workawayers with a huge window onto the garden: a couple or one person. We share bathroom.
