We need help with farming and to rebuild a house including roof, interior, toilets and a kitchen for doing cooking classes.
Help with the web site would also be appreciated, as we plan to build our web site as soon as possible. Mario needs some help with learning English too.
This host offers a language exchange
My friend Mario speaks German, but is not very good with English. Would do him good if he was forced to speak with someone.
Accommodation is organized in a wooden cottage on the farm with 3 wooden houses and one concrete, near the edge of the forest, half an hour from Zagreb. We have a spare bedroom with 2 separate beds. We will provide all the food for three meals a day. My friend Mario lives there continuously, my father sometimes stays there and I sleep in Zagreb, but visit a couple of times every week, except when I dirve taxi or have tours or day trips(which is not very often this year)
As far as our position is concerned - the farm is half an hour from Zagreb city centre with the car and 10 minutes away from the train station of the main railway wich connects Zagreb with Western Europe and where suburban trains connect main railway station and suburbs every 15 minutes to half an hour. Train ticket is 2 € one way.
