Hello dear Workawayers! My name is Alexey. I am the owner of a land parcel in Eastern Latvia and I am recently creating a Green Resting Area at the beautiful lake Skaistas which is situated approx. 11 km from the town of Kraslava.
In particular, I am building a terrace at an old barn and a swimming place at the lake. So I need proper helpers which could help me with designing of the constructions, carpentry, gardening, cooking, etc. ;)
I studied linguistics and politics. I like literature, history and traveling. I want to share my experiences.
Help me and enjoy peaceful nature, silence and have fun with fishing, swimming, sunbathing, BBQ and other nature related activities.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
Help with Computers/ Internet
I would like to offer to my helpers an enjoyable and stressless stay in a nice accomodation situated in a very beautiful lake area. You can learn here a lot about the country life in Latvia. While working here you also can improve your skills in gardening, carpentry and housekeeping. ;) And of course you will have opportunities to meet interesting local people and expats.
As for me I am a native Russian speaker. I studied German language and politics. I speak very good Russian and German and I am also working as an online language teacher. So I can teach you these languages.
I also would love to tell you a lot about the life in Latvia and Russia and give you some advice for traveling in Eastern Europe.
I am a cosmopolitan person, and I am interested in cultural exchange of any kind.
I need people who could help me to do gardening (lawn mowing) and carpentry. It would be great if Workawayers could sometimes help cooking because I love good food and I am open to new culinary experiences. ;)
At the moment I am working at a new terrace and I need helpers who could do painting projects.
Also my landing stage needs to be renewed. Especially in the summer you can work near the water and have a swim in the beautiful lake.
In the autum it is harvesting time for potatoes, tomatoes and all kinds of vegetables.
Latvian (Lettish): Fluent
I provide very good living conditions: The Workawayer gets a separate bedroom and can use a modern kitchen, bathroom, WC - and by arrangemant - a very good traditional sauna.
I can show you some sights in the surroundings (Kraslava or Daugavpils). The nearest public bus stop is about 1,5 km (about one mile) from my house. Of cource I can pick you up when you arrive and bring you to the bus stop when you leave.
