  • Description


    We are a German writer (Kay), travel photographer (Yvonne) and a homeschooling, creative and sportive girl, Kayleen.

    We are travelling the world right now and are no longer living on Mallorca. You would be welcome to wherever we live at this moment - most probably southern Europe.

    We ourselves had great times doing workaway / wwoofing the past 3 years and met super interesting and lovely people / friends.

    We are very open-minded, respectful and well travelled.
    Our passions are travelling the world, writing and photography, Kayleen does Natural Horsemanship, Surfing and loves drawing.

    Non-smokers only!

    We all work and learn from home and as a rule, would closely work with you on a daily 5 hours schedule.

    You are welcome to share our meals if timing fits. But we don`t have a regular schedule so better you be ready to prepare your own meals with food available in the fridge. We cook vegetarian meals only and don`t like meat and fish to be cooked in our apartment. Sorry!

    As we strongly encourage our workawayers to be independent and explore the surrounding while giving us some private time as a family. If it fits we can give you rides and occasionally we are happy if you join us for an excursion.

    Minimum stay is 14 days but from February, March on we are looking at a minimum stay of 2-3 months.

    Please let us know if you like to come later on we need to see where we are and how long the minimum stay would be.

    Teaching Mandarin to Kayleen in a most natural way.

    She has learned mandarin for some years, stopped in between, so I cannot tell her actual level. She now decided to the next step and would love to learn it intensively.

    It is necessary that you speak pure Mandarin without dialect!!!

    Would you like to join us in Cornwall, UK, in Camelford, for about 2 weeks? The exact date is January, 20 to February 03. There we do a housesit and have to care for a Golden Retriever. It would be for a first trial as from mid of February or March on we intend to live on beautiful Madeira, Portugal, where we would like to continue Kayleen's Mandarin education.

    We live in a nice, clean, spanish community, which is 10 km north of Palma. A train station is a 10 minutes walk away and trains to beautiful Palma city take max. 15 minutes. This unique city is an ideal starting point to explore the UNESCO Tramuntana mountains, the beautiful beaches and mallorquin villages, typical mallorquin markets across the island and lots of fiestas throughout the year.

    In 10 minutes walking distance you als have a shopping mall (Festival Park) with Cafes and Restaurants.
    Plus a supermarket and a big cinema.
