  • Description


    We are a young creative and active family living in a house in the Balkans forest in the middle of Bulgaria. We are starting our lives here and we need some extra help with our projects in the house.

    We are family of 4 and one is in the way :) Luben is a very creative person, he loves working outside and experiments with different materials. Anabel is a digital freelance and loves also develop creative projects. Maxy and Maya are our loving dogs. We live very much in peace in this house, the forest surrounds us and the air, food, water is what we considered very good quality.

    This will be a very active year so we would love to have some help.

    Project 1. Luben is planning to renovate our house, so we need help with our house, fixing, building, painting. The work would be inside and outside home.

    Project 2. Anabel is planning to make a room for her future baby, so she would love to have help with decoration, painting, sewing some curtains, shopping.

    Project 3. We would love to have someone who want to work in the garden and in our little green house.

    Project 4. We will have a meditation retreat on the week of 16th to 20th July. It would be great to have some volunteers to help us in the retreat that we will offer to osme traveles.

    Project 5. For the same week (16th to 20th july) we will also need some help with babysitting.

    Project 6. If someone knows about computers, design, graphic design, are very welcome to work in some marketing and digital projects.

    We were also workawers, so we do our best to provide space and agree hours of work and the tasks that you prefer. So it feels more relax and equal. Mostly we like to work as a team :)

    Our place is calm, the forest is very beautiful, we have some springs with the most amazing water. We try to eat very healthily and we are oke with vegetarians and vegans ... we eat fish and meat from time to time and lots of veggies.
    We have a house next to our house, so the workawers can sleep there (some of the rooms are private rooms and others share rooms).

    We expect a Workawer that is honest with his/her words, open-minded, that takes initiative, open communication and kind.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are very well located from a touristic perspective: 4 km hike to a small traditional village, 6 km to a historical town, 30 km from Veliko Tarnovo. Aside from that, you will get to experience nature, if you come in summer big landscapes with herbal teas, Bulgarian food. If you want to join us you can experience time with some of the Bulgarian relatives from Luben that are really loving and they show the traditional life from Bulgarians. And Anabel is Colombian some things from her food.
