  • Description


    Hi everyone!

    I am Markéta, I am 28 years old and I live with my husband Tom and two little fur-balls in a village near Pilsen. We really enjoy meeting new people and we love to travel to see new places. I travelled a lot to teach languages, often as an au pair. This way I lived in Spain, Belgium, France, Italy and Russia and I also spent one year studying in the USA. Tom and I lived in Luxembourg for a while and he travelled in the USA, hiking the Appalachain Trail.

    I have not used workaway hosting profile for years as I was travelling myself therefore the low reply. Now I am happy to reply to every message.

    We live in a house with a large garden in a village surrounded by forests, meadows and a river. It´s great for long walks, bike rides or just chilling in the garden with an iced drink and enjoying the green view. Pilsen city centre is only 30 min train ride away. It is a beautiful town with rich history, architecture, brewery interactive museum, art scenes, theaters, underground, zoo etc. There is a great number of architectural jewels in the region - castles, chateaus, monasteries, churches etc. You will not be bored :) Pilsen is only about one hour away from Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is also close to Germany and some beautiful natural reservations like Šumava. Everything is easily accessible by quite comfy trains.

    Our house has two floors - our fully renovated three bedroom appartament in the loft. In the lower floor we are reconstructing a second apartment and help is needed. We are also doing work in the garden where we need help there as well.

    I would be happy to show you around and make trips in the region, which is small but beautiful with a rich historic heritage (There is a castle or chateau every 10 - 15 km), lovely scenery and great beer and vine. If you like sailing, we can all go on a day trip to the Lipno dam with our trimaran.

    We are looking forward to spending time with travellers and have talks over a coffee or glass of wine :)

  • Help


    We need help with the reconstruction of the second apartment in our house as well as with some tasks in the garden. No expertise is needed we just need an extra set of strong hands. If you are skilled when it comes to manual tasks, that would be a great fit.

    In the apartment, the help includes things such as painting, helping with building walls, tearing things apart, etc. In the garden, we need help with things such as moving a large pile of wood (with the help of a car and a trailer), helping with building fences and setting up gates, etc.

    You would have your own room in our three-bedroom loft.

    Food - We can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner together. In between meals, you can use the kitchen as long as it's neat and clean after you are done, of course :). There is small shop in the village and big supermarkets in Pilsen, so you can just prepare yourself whatever you are in the mood for :)
