Hello, we are a easy-going family of 4 living in Aurisina, a village closed to the sea and closed to Trieste city. We are a young couple with two doughters, the oldest is 8 years old and the youngest is 5 years old. We enjoy the outdoor we love the sea and expecially the mountains. The main passion of our family is climbing, but we enjoy also hiking and cycling and in the winter we also love skying. During the week we work from monday to friday, generally we are back home at three o'clock, but two times por week we come back home at six o'clock. Our daughters are at school from september till june till 15.30 p.m. At home we speak slovenian and italian and we also try to find the time to practice english, because I think that is really important for my daughters that they learn to speak fluently in english, so this year we had two nice experience with english speaking au pair that stayed with us and helped to our girls to learn some english. Also hollydays are a nice opportunity for us and our children to meet people from all over the world. Our best hollidays is when we take our van and go, we enjoy sleeping in our small van (driving home) and to have the chance to live in the nature.
Babysitting and creative play
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
They could learn some italian or some slovene, they could join us in our climbing or in our outdoors activitys and I would also be happy to help to discover our village, city and Karst.
The required help is to take care and help our two girls to practice english in a funny way. Considering that the girls are at school till 15.30 p.m. we would need help two or three times por week in the afternoon after 15.30 p.m.
