    Description

    Hi, we are Corinna and Tobias, half Dutch, half German. I am an historian and Corinna studied Chinese. We love travelling and to meet new people. A few years ago we finished renovating a little house, my grandfather bought in the 1950ties and decided to stay in Barcelona.

    Currently we are looking for an experienced workawayer (just 1 person) to help us fixing the garden and doing some paint jobs in (wall, doors etc) as of second week of February. If you love cooking and would like to cook for us that would be perfect as Corinna is pregnant in 7t months and we are consumed by preparations for our baby boy on the way. Total work load would be 4 hours/day for two weeks. Please write us if you are an mature and responsible workawayer with only positive host feedback and a non-smoker. Sorry for that, but its due to recent negative experiences we had... Thank you for understanding. We are looking forward to hearing from you and reading your story!

    We can offer you a simple but neat and clean room in the house. From our garden you will have a beautiful views over the centre of Barcelona up to the sea! To the next metro station its just a ten minutes walk and from there its only 20 Minutes to the heart of the City, to Plaza Catalunya which is a perfect spot if you want to explore this magic city. Just behind our house you can enter the natural park "parque natural de la sierra de collserola" - perfect if you like mountain biking, jogging or hiking to explore the Tibidabo mountain.

    Looking forward to your email! :)

    Barcelona and the region of Catalunya is an historically 'ancient' and extremely interesting area with increadibly many things to discover, where it's easy to make friends to practise Spanish and know a different culture.
