  • Description

    Description

    I am a German national, female, Grandma (not the rocking-chair-type), living with four Indian dogs (everybody says they are lovely...) as a family in a private holding in the beautiful countryside of North Goa with river- and hill view at the end of a small village, next to happy goats and cows.
    I am a vegetarian, my dogs love to eat chicken and fish.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If living a simple life in a beautiful rural setting is what you are seeking, welcome!

    I have volunteered myself, so I do believe that I have an idea what volunteers need to be happy.

    As I am living for more than 25 years in India, and more than 15 of it in Goa, I believe that I could help you understanding the culture and mentality of people in various Indian states.

    All-rounders out there? I am looking for you!
    Are you passionate and dedicated, reliable and fun to be with, flexible (as I am), experienced with some of the tasks I require to be done and responsible?
    Then please don't hesitate to apply!

    I require help with my rather big garden...... watering lawn and plants with sprinklers and hose, keeping the weeds in check, planting, some levelling of holes dug by the dogs and mowing the lawn with a petrol mower.
    Your love for dogs you can show with cuddling and feeding them (also cooking of dog food).

    There is also work like sandpapering, painting, cooking, keeping my small cottage in order and clean, and of course your own space as well.
    If you have basic knowledge about plumbing (in case a water pipe breaks during your time here) and basic electrical stuff, this would be just great!

    Please do only apply if you have a sound basic knowledge about the functioning of a household, if you are enthusiastic about cooking and also good at, and if you are a "no challenge is too big for me" type.

    Please do specify the type of work you are experienced with when applying.

    Accommodation

    You will have your own spacious room with mosquito net and verandah (the verandah you may have to share with the dogs) in the wooden house in my property. Unobstructed view over fields and the river. There is a cute outdoor bathroom a few meters away.
    Your space has all that you may possibly require.....shelf, comfortable bed, fan.....

    There will be always eatables in the cupboard and fridge.

    I do not have a broadband connection, there are incredibly inexpensive possibilities to buy a SIM card with data, I can help you with this.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    My place is about 16 km from the nearest beach, in the beautiful countryside of North Goa.
    There is a bus connecting every hour to the outside world. If you have an Indian or International driving licence, you could use my scooter occasionally.
    This is not a place for parties (but there are many possibilities in the touristic areas), listening to music with earphones will be appreciated.

    There are many places of touristic interest close by and in some distance, such as heritage buildings, beautiful old churches from the Portuguese time, waterfalls, spice farms and more.
