  • Description


    My name is Andrea, born 1982 and I am Swiss. I traveled to over 70+ countries and worked 5 years as a tour guide in Oman. Due to covid, I came back to Switzerland in 2020 and got a a baby boy, born 2021 named Raphael, he is now 6 months old. We live together in an appartement in Rapperswil SG near the lake. It's a beautiful city near Zurich. I love to make international friends and I am a fan of couchsurfing.

    I really hope to meet you soon.

    I am a mother of a 6 month old baby, and I would love support from you, mostly as a babysitter whilst I am working. You can come with me to work and enjoy the swimming pools for free, because I work for a pool/lake area in Switzerland.

  • Accommodation


    You will have your own room. And mostly you can help me with childcare on about 3 days, it will not be full days and we discuss it week per week or in advance if you stay one month or more. Food cannot all be included, because I am a mama who is not yet rich. Haha. And I live alone with my child, but I promise I do my very best to make your stay fantastic.
