Hi there Workawayer ! We are a family of four. Richie is the father , from Scotland. I am the mother, Karlien , from Belgium. And our two little ones: Skye en Zoë are born in Austria. (3,5 years and 9 months)
Our home base is Austria, but the autumn and spring we spend at the Atlantic Coast in the North of Spain, enjoying beach life and surfing. And also everything that comes with it: camping, family and friends, good food, good times, beautiful nature, walks, outdoor sports, playing on the beach, ... the good life!
We like to share this fun life style with you , and enjoy a great time all together. Do you like beach life? Maybe wanna do some surfing? How are you with kids? Do you have experience with babies?
Skye already goes to kindergarden in san Vicente. We look for some help with our smallest team member: baby Zoë is 9 months. We would expect you to help 4-5 hours in the morning (5days a week). Hang out and play with her. Go for nice walks, play on the beach, feed her, cuddle her, smudge her with love and fun :)
Our aim is to have the morning off to surf, do yoga, cycle, ... have time for ourselves. And then you have time for yourself all afternoon and evening.
So after your morning shift with Zoë , you are free to do whatever you like all afternoon and evening. Always welcome to spend the day with us! Or do some activities of your own.
We love good food and cooking. Looking forward sharing meals together ! Do you like cooking? What are your food preferences? We love food that's healthy and tasty. We do eat some fish and meat as well (not every day)
Your accommodation: your own tent on the campsite. And full board is included. :We see the food experience as something we share as a family / group of friends (and not as a hotel/resto where you sit down and be served). Lets all do some cooking, dishes, entertain the kids , etc. And most importantly : enjoy an awesome time during meals: good crack and stories of the days :))))
We take care of the food costs :)
We look for childcare for 2 months in autumn. And if all goes well , and you are interested, you could also join us to Austria. There you can add more hours and also get paid for these extra hours. We have a guesthouse in the skiresort of St Anton. So there it would be partly taking care of Zoë as a volunteer. And then some guesthouse work (and being paid for that)
But first things first: the season in Spain at the beach :)
We are non-smokers ourselves . And we don't like smoking around our kids. We love people who appreciate life, nature and who live in the moment. Thats why we advertise on workaday. We think its a good bunch of people out here who like to have some great experiences. Lets do this!
