  • Description


    Hi. We are two sisters Ana and Jasmina.
    Two years ago we bought a house in Eastern Istria in little village Martinski with large infield. We renovated a house, have two apartments for tourists and other for us.
    With help of previous Workawayers we build living space for our animals: horse Trojan, three goats, sheeps, chickens, and rabbits. Currently we need help with animals: giving them food, cleaning and taking to pasture.
    In garden we need help with grass cutting, taking care of little vegetable jard.
    We would also like to reconstruct old stone wall around property which has long tradition in Istria ( as cultural heritage).
    In house we need help with cleaning and cooking (we like to learn to cook international dishes).
