Hi! I am Anja, I am 29 and I have two wonderful kids - Mia, who is 7 and Benjamin who is 5.
We live on Slovenian coast, which is attractive during summertime for sure, but has mild climate also during the winter (no snow).
Always busy, with small group of homeschoolers in the morning, some their activities afternoon, trying to see and do as much as possible, eat healthy... 🙈
Anyway, for us is very important that our kids gets as much of education possible, even if that means ‘only hearing a foreign language’ or exange of culture...
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Maybe you will learn a bit Slovenian, which should be exotic, while only 2 milions can speak it.
We are really close to both, Italy and Croatia, so I think you can feel the influence of both (truffels & pasta, prosciutto, fishes).
We live in a village some 10 minutes away from the sea (town), but you can go there each day (we do it like this of course).
You can enjoy our tiny but diverse country and people on the crossroad of east, west, north & south Europe.
In summertime you will be able to enjoy in fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinies, eggplants, peppers, maybe cherries and figs...Later in fall we have grapes, chestnuts, pomegranate, we are picking olives and you can take your own persimmons from the tree 😉
I will be happy to take you around for some trips, feed you with local dishes and exchange all the wisdom we got during our travels 🙈
We are looking for native speakers of english and italian (can be also russian). A person who can take care of our kids if needed - if I would like to have few hours free or I am occupied for few hours OR just to spend some days with us (our family or few homeschooled kids who join us more or less on daily basis). I would be glad to show you around and you can try many new things here 😉
We had workawayers previously and for me it was so great - kids English was so much better after week or two! And then there are new dishes we prepare together, new hairdos they can make, once it’s origami, another time it’s face painting... so it’s alway interesting and so much fun!
Slovenian, croatian, russian, english, italian + bit czech
It depends on your arrival dates. We do have some appartmets for turists during summertime, so maybe one of them is free for you. Otherwise I would accomodate you in our flat. You sleep and eat with us or if you prefer, you can prepare your own food, but it’s really not necessary.
Three previous workawayers ate with us - at home or out 😊 ...We can discuss everything.
We are few minutes from Croatian boarder (Istria) and some 30 minutes from Trieste, Italy.
I would say you can mostly enjoy our coast, but there are also other options except this (check places on the coast: Koper, Izola, Piran, Portoroz; pr around Slovenia: Postojnska jama, Štanjel, Bohinjsko jezero, Ljubljana..).
We are minutes away from the town (car is needed, there are busses but rare), but I can take you just anywhere with us, where we go 😊
Some details we can discuss later, for all further questions, you can message me.
