    Description

    Hi,

    I'm Maria Carme, originally from Barcelona and with a background on Archaeology and Geographical Information Systems. After backpacking around the world for almost two years, I have settled in Kangaroo Island, where I work part time in a café and I try to write fiction based on my travels.

    I love interacting with different cultures, and I have been a workawayer and helper myself, doing some gardening in New Zealand, and helping with the daily house shores of a lovely family in Adelaide.

    I live on my own in a lovely cottage in Penneshaw, with a view over paddocks and the see, a bit up hill, but only 15/20 minutes walking to the beach and to the town centre.

    I need help at the moment because I had an accident and I have a limited use of one of my hands until I recover. Your job would mainly consist in doing the dishes and some cooking as well as in basic cleaning and gardening.

    What else ...

    During your free time, in Penneshaw itself, you can enjoy the beach and beautiful hikes with plenty of wild live. It is very common to spot Kangaroos, wallabies, pelicans, dolphins, seals, and, if you look for them, peguins. Kangaroo Island is full of beautiful landscapes to explore!
