UPD JUNE 2020:
Help in city Valmiera starts in July 15 - you are welcome to join us in July, August and most probably, September, for an exciting workaway experience in Valmiera. Renovating a house and turning it into a co-working space.
There is always a bit of work in Riga Erasmus apartment too, just write me which option and dates suit you the most.
Looking for friendly, hardworking, reliable and positive helpers! Skilled people most needed but we are very happy to greet everyone willing to help!
OLD OFFER BELOW:
I would offer to stay in the same apartment (Riga city center) while its being organized (no heavy construction work so its pretty clean) and meals three times per day (feel free to join in or take over the cooking sometimes). Depending on the work, the help would be 5 h/per day, with a weekend off, but I am rather flexible so this can be all talked over.
The weekends might be a bit busy but then I can compensate with a weekday off or something. In the best case if you can help me out during the entire project and have several days off at the end.
I expect my workawayers to be rather flexible and I will respond with the same.
The apartment is located in the very center of Riga so it makes it easy to access and provides some great opportunities to go out, have fun, also do some sightseeing during the day. I live just downstairs so I can offer amenities like washing machine, internet etc.
To sum up some of the things which need to be done:
- cleaning (windows, carpets, washing lamps etc)
- light painting, decorating
- moving furniture, helping out with going after it, bringing up (floor 5 !!!:)) - loads of physical tasks
- installing oven, washing machine, kitchen shelves, other furniture
- helping on marketing, showing around etc.
I will be involved in all the tasks myself so I basically need some help and assistance. Working at ease but with a focus on the result :)
Help to hear from you!
If you like yoga, we can do some flows together in the mornings. I am trying to practice every day a bit.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
I am actively involved in the Riga cultural life so I can take you with me and show you around. Also many nice places are within walking distance so feel free to spend your afternoons, seeing around Riga. Of course, you will have a chance to learn about the history of Latvia, the traditional culture and local hipster wibe :)
I expect volunteers to be able to help out physically, to be able to do renovation work (cleaning, painting, building)
arrange a flat/house from nothing to living conditions on a budget so help includes assisting me on shopping, carrying, installing, light construction work, cleaning etc. Also looking for someone to prepare the contracts in English and to do some marketing (photos, listings). Cooking skills also welcome!
We will volunteer in a fun and laid back environment and enjoying the process, but still with a focus on the result:)
Latvian (Lettish): Fluent
Staying in both places: very basic shared rooms in Valmiera and a shared apartment in Riga, Miera iela (very hip young people's area)
VALMIERA - its exploring the town and nearby surrondings. Cēsis is a nice city for culture (30 min bus ride)
Riga is just below your window! Currently there are some great exhibitions going on, I can help you with some concert tickets (worked in classical music before), I also can help with tips on local sightseeing, bars, etc. Have a spare bike (for quite short people). Old Town 7 minutes away.
Transport is not needed if you wanna stay around center, but in case if you decide to go to the seaside, the train station is just 5 minute away (around 1,50 EUR one way to the sea)
I am really happy to help with everything and also take you out if I go with some friends:)
