  • Description

    Description

    I am a mother of 2 wonderful kids (a 10 yo boy and a 6 yo girl). We live in front of the sea, 30 min away from Barcelona (train station at 5 min walk). We can see the palm trees from our sofa!

    We are an international family, as my boy was born in France, my girl in Scotland and their father is Italian. Even if I am originally from Barcelona, I have lived in 5 different countries for 20 years and came back to the area 3 years ago.

    We've hosted 8 workawayers so far (from Montreal, Amsterdam, New York, Hawaii, Italy, France, Czech Republic and USA) and it has been an amazing experience!

    As a family we are very engaged in our kids education: our boy has attended a Montessori farm nursery in Italy, a free-play nursery in Scotland and now a learning community in Mataró (Barcelona). We have also been unschoolers. I am looking for someone who speaks English as first language and who enjoys spending time with kids, who is open and creative. The person should like playing and cooking (varied and healthy). 4h a day from Monday to Friday, mainly mornings and lunch-time (one of these days would be consecrated to a general cleaning).

    Oh and we have a kitten :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a freelance translator and language teacher. I love exchanging with people from different places and have lots of international friends. My kids are very open and love travelling.

    Our friends and neighbours (also an international family) host workawayers, so you will be able to share your experience and become friends with other workawayers.

    Being in front of the beach in a wonderful and easy city at just 30 min from Barcelona, there are plenty of activities to do! Trains and buses run every 10 min.
