Our family lives in a smaller growing town just East of Dallas, TX. We have a home on 7 acres with a pool to cool you down in the heat of summer.
Dallas is an amazing city with many things for youngsters to see and do - excellent arts district and great shopping and dining.
We are surrounded by lakes for fishing and water sports.
We have a 24 year old who traveled for 2 years with "workaway" and now lives and works in Dayton, Ohio.
Our other son, Hanco, is 22 years old ... he works with his dad, lives at home, and is very outgoing. He is an amateur musician and inventor and enjoys outdoors activities, but often lacks a companion for sharing his adventures.

Help in the house
We are a South African (Afrikaans) family living in the USA for 20 years. We can offer two cultural experiences at once.
We are looking to host some enthusiastic, friendly young people who can join us as part of the family so we can all make some wonderful memories together. Life is too short to just chug along in our own little world --- we would love to share our world with yours and learn of your culture and life experiences.
We would love to help our visitors see some of the USA by helping with inexpensive travel plans and offer advice and guidance. We try to show them around Dallas a bit as well.
We need help with some home maintenance & yard work to keep the property tidy. Most of the major projects have been completed, but there are still small projects to be done as regular home maintenance.
Apart from the enjoyment we get from having people in the house to share conversation and laugh and learn from each other, our main objective is to have help with with daily chores/cooking.
We expect about 20hrs of work per week.
You will have a room with private/semi-private bathroom and all meals included.
I would love to learn German or Italian. Those language skills will be preferred.
English and preferably German or Italian
We have two bedrooms upstairs with a shared bathroom for those two rooms. If there are two friends travelling together it will work out great, otherwise, the bathroom is for the sole use of one workawayer.
The USA is really a car country. Even if you live in Dallas, you still need a car to get around.
Although we are in the country, Uber has finally reached Greenville, TX.
Movies are within 2 miles (walk, bicyle or Uber).
Town is about 4 miles.
Dallas is about 40 miles away - if really needed there is a Greyhound bus that can take you to Dallas or Houston ... or anywhere else really.
If you are over 22 and you have an international Drivers license, you have the option to use our car with a $500 damage deposit.
We will make sure you get to see the sights around Dallas and take you shopping whenever needed.
I work in a HUGE shopping city (Frisco, TX) - you can come to work with me some days and spend all day shopping if you want.
