  • Description


    Hello everybody!
    My name is Mikel. I need your help to help me run a small guest house in the beatiful city of Shkodra, Albania.
    We do have a big garden with a lot of fruit trees. The guesthouse if located not far away from the center, so it is in a quite neighbourhood. Shkodra our city is the city that everybody loves when passes by. We do have the biggest lake in the Balcans. A 2400 years old castle. 2 rivers in both sides of the city, third river north. The sea just 30 Km away, and Albanian alps, 70 km away.
    The work of volunteers consist in daily routine stuff like: smiling, enjoying the beatiful days, cleaning, and small daily tasks that need to be done around the place different from day to day. Last thing, is to enjoy this place and have fun.
    I have a small garden with vegetables, and we grow our own tomatoes, zuchini, pepper, eggplants, cucumbers.
    In the garden there are a lot of fruit trees. We have fruits in the garden from end of May till end of January.
    I do have a really lovely dog named Tia. She is the living legend, mascot and White queen of our Hostel. And a young prince Sirius, a beautiful black cat.

    I can guarantee that you will have a great time over here.
