  • Description


    Dear Workawayers,

    If you want to see the traditional Transylvania and spend a week or two around the countryside of Sibiu - this might be it.

    I need help in the 10000 mp apple tree farm. Laying fire wood, cutting grass, cutting wood, watering plants, general maintenance of the wood house.

    A number of 5 hours of working per day are expected. I will make sure that you see the best parts of Sibiu and around Sibiu. Accommodation will be in a gorgeous tiny house on wheels in one of the most beautiful villages of Transylvania. I am born in Transylvania, am a passionate photographer, ski instructor, and nature & animals addicted. I have my own dog, so if you bring yours, he is more than welcome. Important is that the animal is well know all about that.

    I tested workaway on my own as a volunteer last year for 8 months. I consider it a wonderful opportunity to travel, work for your meals and accommodation and meet new interesting people.

    Internet access: is limited. I have my own usb with internet but no wifi. Possibilities to connect to a wifi in the village exist
    Pets: I have 4 dogs. If you wanna bring your dog and it sleeps outside in a comfy grass or dog house, it is fine.

    You will stay close to Sibiu, part of Transylvania region, the 2007 Cultural Capital of Europe. It is a small to medium size city, peaceful in its way, alongside a river with loads of traditional Romanian things to try out: the fresh markets, the Saturday fair for used goods, concerts, cycling, local cuisine. If you wanna see Romania, and get a glimpse of Transylvania, then this could be the right experience for you.
