    ### LOOKING FOR SB WILLING TO STAY MORE THAN ONE MONTH. The longer the better. ####


    Live with a non traditional family and enjoy the sunniest city in Spain. We are my 3 years old daughter Binta and myself, Ana , living in a beautiful and bright house in the outskirts of an historical and interesting city called Cartagena (in fact, one of the sunniest of Europe). I am a yoga teacher and I am currently running my own project for children, an alternative and conscious school for kids (1-6 years old).
    I´m specialized in yoga for kids and I worked with children for more than10 years so as u can imagine I love being around children...but my favorite is my daughter. Binta is three years old and she is...😍just incredible. As I have travelled a lot and always moved meeting new people, I feel very important for the spiritual, personal and educational growth of my kid to be around people from different cultures and languages. I got also a Master trainining in Free/alternative education so I am also seeking for people who are interested in that or have any knowledge. Binta started school this year (at the age of 3) and she is going to a Montessori based school. She has previously been always surrended by incredible and amazing workawayers that made our life even more especial.
    My city is Cartagena, is a beautiful coast area with mild winter and really hot summers. It is a very interesting place if you like history or fancy outdoor Sports as you can practice watersports during all year. Also the city is surrounded by amazing mountains and Hills in case you like climbing or hikking.
    As we live in the outskirts so being able to drive, use a bike or take a bus is important (the city is 40 min walking, 15min driving). You Will have one of the bikes I use in case u are interested in travelling that way.
    I am vegetarian, but Binta is only vegetarian when she is with me (I mean she is free to try things when she is with her grandparents). Lately due to a health problem I started to use some seafood from time to time.
    I would like to host someone who loves kids.
    In September 2021 im opening a forest school with some Waldorf and Montessori methods and I would LOVE to host somebody Who Can help around the school. Someone Who Can be playing with children, teaching songs, telling stories and teaching English in a natural way...
    You will have a private huge and light wellfurnitured room, with Internet. The person will be ideally like a part of the family, sharing meals and general tasks.
    We live in an area where you can listen birds while having lunch and then hens in the morning (some days not very pleasant); it is a small town just 40 min walking to Cartagena or 15 min by car. There are buses every 20 minutes and, you can use a bike too, as it is not very hilly. The area itself has supermakets, bars, restaurants, shops and library so, it can be a nice area to walk around if you dont want to go to Cartagena.
    I will need someone who is flexible, willing to help and not only being a guest (let's say proactive) and who can understand a bit the life of a working single mom (i dont need more tasks, i need less). I consider myself very flexible too, so, someone easygoing to live with.
    The last but not the least, we adopted a dog in september, so someone who is not allergic and likes animals.
