  • Description


    I "have" a Big House in Sweden (högsby region) that i "bought" in april and that need some LOVE and energy from nice people... Decoration, maintenaince, gardening, cooking...

    Im planning to be working on It from end August probably till Next spring 2021. I guaranteed you we Will not get bored.

    I "have" two beautiful and well trained dogs, german malinoises, and a very good just friend Will be with me from the beginning, giving me a good hand.

    The time u can spend in d House It can vary but im normally Up for a Minimum of three weeks as I consider that the Minimum time necesary to get to know somebody and specially for people to know how to use the many tools Will be using.

    Of course sometimes i can do exceptions on that but you Will be pleased of those three weeks as thats a good time also to start getting to know a beautiful área as högsby and its beautiful near island, Oland, with its cute and mini stonenhenge. The maximum staying can also vary depending on d satisfaction of both sides but i like to put a 3 weeks mark as a time to evaluate the situation and see if anyone needs a break.

    Looking forward to start reading some requests slowly and just for you to know i dont really like copy/paste messages and i promise you i have a sixth sense to detect them.

    Special skills or habilities not a must but if you have any im very Happy to know them in advance. It doesnt need to be just
    DIY, cooking skills, music, Sports, dancing, singing, anything u do special is welcome...

    Considering this enough to start a small conversation.

    You are welcome...

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Sweden is a beautiful country with loads of things to do... specially when weather is nice so swedish summer is always amazing to do some summer sports while the winter Will also offers you the authenticity and wildness of a nordic country. Winter in southern Sweden is dramatically beautiful so people is welcome all year around from now.

    There are plenty of hikes and natural landscapes to visit while you Will be here so thats always a point come south Sweden as well the food is completely amazing with loads of nice fresh options always to eat... Not so easy for vegetarians i have to say but that shouldnt be a problem.

    Schloss Kalmar, something like a Castle, is a must. I Will be expecting doing some trips with the workers, specially weekends, whenever the work was done, to explore the interesting áreas around.

    I like to say Workaway is about sharing and learning about others culture, in that way i expect as a host a complete exchange of knowledge both ways (i know some people Will have less working experience than others but thats not a excuse to give as much of what you have in terms of interest and sharing motivation).
    Communication is the key of any asociation and to be comunicative is just to be open to express what you have inside. In d other hand sharing culture is sharing food, your food, your language, your stories... and obviously, that just can go two ways, one way to give, and one to take or recibe.

    Especially in these times we are living so very uncertain, dificult, and hard they are... so spending them in a good companion, with an interesting project, and more important, in a freedom environment is a more than a desirable thing. Id say its a need. Thats why we welcome free spirits, Brave enough to be travelling in d middle of a storm...

    For now you Will be arriving at the beginning of d project so d activities Will be very diferents depending on your skills and what we need every moment, so u can help even in d organization of them... We value motivation and a good iníciative over all.

    As i said, with my friend companion Who Will be in the House from the beginning, we are two very funny and easy going guys, but when It comes to work we like things well done and not waste of time. We are always open to new ideas and ways of doing anything. We enjoy learning even we have some good Life experience.

    What you can be sure is u Will not ever be asked to do something we wouldnt do ourselves.

    On particular tasks, Will be doing some fences, lots of painting, some artistic decoration, and some designed building constructions as probably an exterior sauna ill be supervising very close, so Creative people are more than welcome, in the same way than more technichal people.
