I'm an active person always eager to find new ways to explore. I was travelling for 2 years, lived and studied in Turkey, Germany, Australia, Norway and the Netherlands. I tend to go traveling as often as possible, as I love nature, people, different cultures and think that it will be extremely important to be well travelled to better understand and to be able to adapt to the inevitable changes the world is subject to. I have recently moved to Brisbane where I live in a character-filled Queenslander with a big garden that needs a lot of work. For help around the garden and the house I offer free accommodation (double bedroom, private bathroom and use of shared space - including the front and back deck and the garden). Helpers also have access to the kitchen, where they can find basic cooking ingredients. Beyond that, helpers are expected to cater for themselves.
I expect Workawayers to respect privacy, keep the space tidy and clean. No pets, no couples, no smokers, no parties please.
Please send me a bit more information about yourself and your skills, and why you'd like to stay at the 'Gardener's Cottage'.
