  • Description


    Hello to you who's reading these letters!

    My name is Al and I’m pleased to meet you!

    With my family - I am living in wonderful Montenegro in a lively town called ‘Plav’. It’s located in the mountains and rests at a gorgeous lakes. Halfway, near the top of the mountain you’ll find a cute little cabin that is ours - and yours to feel home at! Here, there is no or bad WiFi connection, -only some area in need and emergency cases - yet there is a creek and water access, pine trees and ferns, possibility to do whatever you feel called to. And that’s what we here do! I have a number of projects running and am always working and building on something new. I’m a dreamer that loves to make my dreams come true - and if you feel called, I’d love to do that with you!

    Projects here in the mountains you could be helping with are building wooden bungalows, spots to relax, fire places for camp fires, tree houses... or anything elso that you think could improve our littel place. Also in summer we might need some help with taking care of guests, like cooking and cleaning.

    Downtown in the village Plav we are working on a lot of different projects at the same time, hihi...

    In summer 2022 we opened a hostel, which is running now, but still needs some attention. Here we could need help with cleaning and improving the hostel, like drawing pictures on the walls, building diy furniniture and so on.

    Also we opened a travel agency just recently, Here we would like to create local tours for tourists, which you could help creating and testing with.

    We just opened an art gallery with local artists of Plav, also here you could support with different topics.

    What we need pretty urgent would be somebody that helps us to create a website for all our different projects and support with research of different things like funding for our NGO projects and so on (some of them started already, some are about to start. If you stay one months or longer, you are very welcome to support with those too, they deal with education, female empowerment, environmental protection).

    What to expect?

    In the mountain You will be sleeping in the lodge (10 bed dorm) or in your tent/van.
    Most of the projects take place in the downtown. Here you stay at the Hostel, probably in a three or four bed room with other volunteers. If a shared room is a problem for, please talk to us. We go up to the lodge quite often at the weekends to relaxing and hiking. In the hostel, there are mostly around 4-5 volunteers at the same time.

    In town, there is a good internet connection and also WiFi in the hostel and bars. We will provide the food for your stay, but you will have to cook for yourself. Mostly the volunteers cook together.

    There is a bus going from Podgorica to Plav frequently. I’m always ready to help you with what you need, and hope to receive back that you are able to give and share with this place!

    If you are interested, please send me a message with the time and duration you would like to stay and maybe you already have an idea of how you would like to support us.

    We are very exited to meet you and looking forward for you to come to the beautiful area of Plav! :-)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Workawayers can do/learn lets say Whatever they want!! :-) We'll be more then happy to help them to explore our culture, heritage, language and gastronomy of the area.
    Plav is located in central part of Montenegro. This side of the country is still unexplored from natural beauty and culture of this people. For the projects downtown in and around the Gallery and Hostel (wich are actually inside the same building) our goals especially for the
    Gallerie's project is bringing back the spirit of culture. Being part of this project means helping a very beautiful cross-cultural experience, which sends a message to the whole world, the world is beautiful when we look each other through the eyes of art.
    Our guests would be able to see and feel on such a small territory five different languages and unique local warm hospitality.
    A small town between the high mountains with the hearth of the lake can give you a true connection of a man and a nature where you will see the power of mountains and water around you. You would be connected with National park of Prokletije Mountains.
