So, warts and all, we've got a messy house with two messy boys in it, and a messy garden. All of these things need a load of TLC that we just haven't had time to do, and our two awesome boys of course take preference. #1 is 6 years old and relentlessly ADHD-style active and smart, #2 is three and is the loveliest little dude you'll ever meet, is now learning his first words and sentences and loves to smile and giggle.
We live in the Blue Mountains which is West of Sydney, taking just over an hour on the train from Springwood. We can always drive you to Springwood station, or to Penrith station if there's any issues with the trains. This is a bit out of the way of Sydney in a peaceful, chilled (alternatively, quiet boring depending on perspective :) ) idyllic area with loads of beautiful hikes and bush walks nearby.
We've had a few challenging Workawayers recently, and as a result would like to keep visits to a week or if possible. Please be nice, calm and understand we are doing our bestest with our two wonderful boys.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
I speak multiple languages, he’s just learning to talk and I’m trying to give him a multilingual environment. We love welcoming guests to our home and I’m quite often working at home too.
There’s lots of walks nearby, including Birdwood Gully that’s 2k of trees, streams and lizards.
And Netflix, AppleTV+, Disney+ and Binge. Depending on what you’re into!
Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Childcare would be appreciated, they are lovely children. They are also 6 and 3 but can’t do much about that.
This host offers a language exchange
I used to teach English in China and Japan, and love new languages.
A lovely house in Springwood, Blue Mountains with beautiful bush views. Springwood station is 15-20 minutes walk away, I work from home and I can drive you there if you need. We have a spare bedroom, and a sofa bed in the front room if you want friends to visit.
What else ...
There's lots of walks around the Blue Mountains, and the station is just a walk away or one of us will be happy to drive you. It's one straight line straight into Sydney Central station in one direction, and Leura in the other.
