  • Description

    Description

    Small salary possible.

    We live on a country side, close to the one of the biggest cities in northern part of Poland, Bydgoszcz. We are a family with 3 kids, 11, 9 and 5 years old. We both are engineers, having our own small businesses. We used to live in a big cities, New York, Berlin, Warsaw, but somehow we are very happy in a small village. We love to be surrounded by nature. We love to travel, what we do whenever we can. With my husband we are fluent with English, but it would be nice to practice the language with you. We would also like to start learning Spanish, so if you can speak Spanish fluently, it would be of extra benefit, but not a must.
    We are not vegetarians, but it would not be a problem for us to serve you this type of dishes.
