  • 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.
    Our family is consisted by: Luben, he is an illustrator, and DIY person by heart. He is needs some extra help in building the kitchen and some parts of our home, so if you are creative, good with wood or open to learning, it would be cool to have you here! Anabel is from Colombia, is part-time digital freelancer and needs some help with the garden, cooking, cleaning the home and time to time we can go to the forest to clean some plastic and things that don't belong to the forest or if you are good with Photoshop or web design also would be great an extra help in our Digital Agency.

    Maxy and Maya are our lovely dogs, they will be happy receiving love and cuddles :)

    Luben and I were also Workaways for years, so we understand the dynamics of this volunteer program. Basically, we want you to feel comfortable here, in your free time, you can use our artistic materials like paintings, clay, etc. to have some fun. We also have bikes so you can go around... we will be organising the hours of volunteering together, so you can feel good about it! we expect you to share with us and with our loving grandparents that time to time we go to visit in their traditional Bulgarian village or you can stay in the forest house.

    We are not in a hurry to have volunteers. So feel free to apply and we talk a bit more by messages to see if we match :)

    We love art, creative projects, sustainability. Luben loves music (rock and heavy metal), he likes Dota, being active, creative and I like philosophy, marketing ( I can teach you how to be a digital nomad).

    Our place is calm, the forest is very beautiful, we have some springs with the most amazing water. We try to eat very healthy and we are oke with vegetarians and vegans ... we eat fish and meat time to time and lots of veggies.

    We expect a Workawer that is honest with his/her words, open minded, that takes initiative, open communication and kind. Preferably couples are welcome!

    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 so can offer Spanish words, music and some food :)
