  • Description


    hi everyone, we are couple in Istanbul Turkey.We are also currently looking for Workawayers for stays from mid-August to march 2018 We are all very open minded and love meeting people from different cultures. More Importantly I'm looking for someone who has still like yoga, photography, music, arts.

    Who we are:
    We are a Turkish professional couple in our mid 30s, and have a large house for us, We are a very easy going family that welcome you to spend as much time as you choose learning about all aspects of Turkish culture.

    Interests & "lifestyle":
    we are generally interested in other cultures and how people around the world live.

    What hours are we looking for:
    We ask you to volunteer about 3-4 hours a day, for 5 days out of 7.
    We work full-time, but would be happy to join in helping with you at weekends, and maybe could take some time off work on other days occasionally. But generally during the week you might be doing your own thing a lot of the time.

    Who we are looking for?
    We would prefer to have a single Workawayer or a couple (age 27 or older), and who can be fairly independent when volunteering. (We have one spare room, with a double bed, so this might not be suitable for friends travelling together.) We are also more interested in meeting people from other countries, rather than our own - but we will consider British people if you seem a good fit to us :-) Please look at the list of jobs we need doing before contacting us!

    We would only like to host non-smokers. Please note that we cannot host any children.

    We are near the mainline train between Mecidiyeköy and the Beylikdüzü on the coast with Atatürk airport in the middle.
    (Beylikdüzü 3 mins, Mecidiyeköy 1hr)
    Also there is a bus that stops right outside the house that runs between city center and it also stops at the nearest

    Getting to know each other:
    Before we commit ourselves to hosting you, we would very much like to Skype with you, so that we can all see whether we would get along. We hope that you will see the benefits of this for you too. :-)

    Feel free to contact me with any questions.
