I/we have travelled within Europe, South-Africa, Philippines, Australia and in the U.S. and it's great to get to know people from different countries. But we really lost our heart to Mallorca so many years ago my hubby and I decided to move to beautiful Palma de Mallorca. We have become a friendly and active family with two kids aged 13 and 10 years. And we also have two lovely cats and one dog. We live in a spacious finca in a very green part of Palma with quick and easy access to both the historical + cultural sights as well as the party life of this unique city. Palma is the ideal starting point to explore the mountains, the mallorquin pueblos and the beaches of this beautiful island!!!
Our multi-lingual kids are used to being around Workawayers/Aupairs from all corners of the world and therefore they are open-minded, fun & easy to be with and they love learning about other cultures. Their hobbies are football, horse-riding, athletics, swimming, art/crafting, singing/dancing, playing cards/lego/playmobil, cycling and spending time with their friends at the pool/beach etc. If you can relate to that chances are high that you will be getting along with us pretty well! ;-)
We all speak GERMAN (mother tongue), ENGLISH and SPANISH fluently. Both our kids learn Spanish, English, French and Catalan in school, too. Therefore it would be a big advantage if you have (a basic knowledge of) any of the mentioned languages!
IMPORTANT: please ONLY contact us if you are planning to stay a minimum of 8 weeks! Even longterm could be possible if the chemistry works... :-) AND: at the moment we are ONLY looking for a SINGLE FEMALE workawayer (hope it will change soon but I will have to convince my hubby first ;-))
