  • Description


    A little bit about meself,

    I had been working and living abroad for many years, 3 years in India, 5 years in Belgium, 4 years in UK thru my career and another year with my ex partner in France. I also speak French-not fluent but average. My mother passed away not so long ago and I quit my job to look after my father, this work will be a long while and am happy to do it, it's relatively new for me, but my dad's experiences can be useful for me at the orchard. I was born here but left for my studies and work more than half of my life but still got loads of close friends and relatives here. You will experience some of our local ways of living, stuff and your ideas about house decoration also welcome.
