  • Description


    Hello! I am a full-time student and full-time freelance writer. I am swamped with work, uni and looking for a little help in exchange for a stay in beautiful Split, Croatia. I typically ask my volunteers to stay a minimum of 3 weeks, as it gives us time to get into a routine and get to know each other.

    I am looking for self-motivated, active, friendly volunteers. As I mentioned above, I am extremely busy and need volunteers who can step up and take ownership of the few tasks I ask.

    My life is a little crazy with University, so anyone who can help make things a little smoother at home would be really appreciated. I am also looking forward to meeting people and having good company around the house. But for more particulars, I am looking for a few different areas of help:

    1) Meal prep: This is the most important task I need help with. I love eating healthfully and having healthy food/snacks readily available to grab on the go. There are a few great markets within walking distance from my place. I need help running to the market to pick up groceries and making healthy meals/snacks to have at the house, so any culinary interest would be a big plus!

    2) Simple house maintenance: I don't necessarily need anyone to clean the house or have a list of chores to do but I would appreciate help in misc tasks keeping things tidy. The most important is keeping the kitchen clean (dishes done and put away), taking out the rubbish and vacuming.

    3) Living an active/healthy lifestyle: This is very important for me, so anyone who has these same values would be very welcomed. I enjoy running and working out so if you'd like to join or have ideas for other work outs I'm very open to this.

    4) Occasional help watching my little man, sweet and energetic (just turned) 5 year old

    Beaches and islands are nearby, Split itself you can walk everywhere or the buses are an easy way to travel. The harbor is 12 minutes walk from my flat so easy access if you want to go check out the islands nearby :)
