  • Description


    My name is Cheryl and I am 61 years old and newly retired. Ideally, I'm looking for some help painting the single garage, but more important is the company and getting to know new people and hear about their countries and life experience. There is a chance to do some house sitting in September/October for three weeks.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I would be happy to give you English language practice. I love cooking /baking and would be willing to teach you to make a few signature dishes to amaze your family and friends upon your return home. We are an hour away from Child's Lake and Blue Lakes, nestled in a coniferous forest. There are hiking trails nearby and they are great places for a swim and picnic. I would also be willing to take you on a few day trips to Riding Mountain National Park or other areas close by.

    I am looking for help with scraping, sanding and painting a small garage and deck. If that goes well, maybe we could do some painting in the basement. If you know how to drywall, that would be a bonus! Also looking for some company as I live alone.
