Gotland is a very beautiful place with many historical places and buildings as old churchs and ruins. We have many nice beaches and wonderful nature. You can learn swedish language, how life is on an island and also find new friends. Gotland is a popular place for tourists all over the world.
We are looking for a Female workawayer and we need some help with babysitting for our 3,5 old child, and also sometimes for our two older children, 8 and 11 years old. Drive them to activities and school, so you need to have a driver license. We also want help with easier housekeeping as cleaning and doing the dishes. We also need you to take care of our dog when we are at work/school. Some weekends we go to our cottage, then we need help with taking care of our two cats. We want you to be good with children and animals. We would like you to come in September 2017 and stay for at least 2-3 months.
We would like you to be a positive, independent person with social schills.

This is a beautiful island on the East coast of Sweden in the middle of the Baltic sea. From Stockholm you can easily arrive here in 5 hours by taking the ferry to Gotland. You will come to the port of Visby, which is the best preserved medieval city in all of Scandinavia with some 200 medieval buildings surrounded by a long “ring wall”.
This is a great vacation destination in Sweden where you can enjoy what it is an amazing summer city without feeling like you are in a tourist trap - people from Sweden and especially people from Stockholm like to spend their summer.
Enjoy festivals. for example the Medieval week in Aug 2-9 when the whole city dresses up in costumes, and it is like travelling back in time. There is so much to see and do - markets and music, theater and knights clash in tournaments. -There is always something happening in the summer with concerts, festivals and parties.
Visby is of historical importance, being an center of merchandise. It was a scene for battlefield for Danes, Swedes, German, Russians and the Pirates. Gotland was also badly hurt by the plague as it is an island. You will see calm surroundings which is well known in old Swedish films and it was was Ingmar Bergman's favorite location, and where he also lived permanently his last 30 years.
If you know of Pippi Longstocking, and watched all the films made about her during the 60's, then you can take the time to visit the original set, Pippi's house here in Gotland, 5 min away from our house.
After you enjoyed Visby it's time for the green and beautiful countryside around the island, go to the beach, of Sudersand on the small island Fårö, with it's astonishing stone beaches and wild nature. Also don't forget to visit some of the medieval churches all around Gotland.
