Come and experience the beautiful east coast of Canada while you help the host renovate a home into a work of art - it is a fun and creative project! I live right next to a national park with one of the best local beaches only 14 km away and over 60 km of hiking and biking trails - and I have a bike that you can use and just got a couple of kayaks as well! I also make occassional trips to one of the nearby towns and the city of Moncton.
DIY and building projects
I am an English language teacher so if you are looking to improve your English I can help improve your pronunciation and explain the structure of the language for you. I also am happy to share what I know of Canadian culture. I am new to the French Acadian culture that is around me now on the east coast - we can learn more about it together!
If you have any experience working on a house renovation it will be useful. I am transforming a home into something more beautiful - this includes putting in beautiful glass tiles, new flooring, and getting rid of ugly old interiors! There also might be a few small carpentry jobs.
You will sleep in a bedroom in the home. I will buy the food (you can let me know what you like to eat) and if you like to cook you are welcome to cook and I will do the dishes or I can cook for you and you can help with the dishes!
Here is a list of attractions (list from a nearby bed and breakfast):
You can explore a beautiful and unique area. We are located at the Acadian coastal route that runs through an area renowned for its spirited Acadian culture and its sandy beaches and other beautiful destinations. A boardwalk for a 2 km hike (NB trail) starts right in our back yard.
