  • Description


    Hello, me and my son 11 are living in quite a big house for the two of us, we're used to stay here with 3, 4 or 5 people so it's a bit quiet now :-). We live in the beautiful east of Holland in an old village opposite a windmill near Zutphen, an old town on the riveside around a lot of farmland and woods. We have a dog, rabbits, garden. Bicycles and car.

    I like to have a handyman for jobs as fixing the pipes wich got clogged in the volunteersroom, taking out bamboo, fixing bycicles, working on a camper and stuff like that now! Painting, hanging up curtains too. Many things.
    Also my webshop/website is a mess, maybe someone can fix?

    I have one happy kid in the house, who sometimes need a babysit. And some pets and things in the house.

    Also there's a camper that needs work sometimes. It might be possible to use this too.

    The festivalwork is not very busy yet and will start around half of April with the bigger events. This can be the (only) part paid for for the hours actually worked, if it suits you and you're capable.

    I work at festivals and need somebody stay with my kid and also Workawayers could also sometimes come with me to the festivals if this is what are able to and you like. These are popfestivals, hippiefestivals, fantasyfairs and markets. A lot of fun and very very busy away from the quietnes of our town, with usually nothing but party and happy people to meet. I go there my an oldtimervan.. Also you get an entrance ticket and see the bands you always wanted to see for exemple :-) or be in a fairy fantasyland or back in the 70's on many different places all around Holland.

    I love to travel and meet up with like minded people from all over the world to share culture, languages and experiences.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Zutphen is beautifully located in the east of Holland, you can go running, cycling, swimming or visit the old town or towns nearby. When you take rides to my festivals you will see the whole of Holland like Amsterdam, Den Haag, Emmen, Weert , Groningen any place. Or yuu just hop in the train, Holland is only small.

    Please no deodorants or perfumes !
