Greetings! I was an avid Workawayer for 7 years, and now I am in one place, the beautiful & remote Falkland Islands. We live on the West Island, in a small settlement on the coast overlooking the water. The West Island is all sheep farming. We have a 60 year old house which needs a kitchen makeover!
The Falklands are a remote and unique environment, with penguins, seals, whales and albatross. Weather can be harsh any time during the year. It would be easy to visit South America either coming or going.
The ideal workawayer would be a retired kitchen installer! Countertops, backsplash, hooking up a gas cooktop, giving us more electrical outlets and laying a new floor are what we need done.
We have two comfortable spare bedrooms to choose from, a shared bath, and plenty of lamb to eat! Not a big range of fruit and veg is available. WiFi is slow and limited, as is TV. We have only 6 channels! But it must be the cleanest air in the world, and the night skies are absolutely amazing.
Someone who enjoys their own company, hiking and reading would do well here. For the right candidate I will pay half your airfare. There is no public transport, and the roads can be slippery when wet. We can however arrange trips to another island to see Elephant seals, penguins, albatross. Non-smokers, social drinker only. We lead a quiet life in a beautiful place. The project we have in mind shouldn’t take more than 2 weeks max.
