  • Description


    We are a family (all members vaccinated) with two kids. Our house is rather big and has a nice garden suroundung it. We live in Lyss, which is 17 train min from Bern.(Unesco WH) We mainly need help for wall painting, cooking, garden house building and in the garden. No baby sitting. We can also use mathematical skills on a bachelor level.
    We like to exchange with foreigners, as we have less time to travel now.

    Our garden pool needs an innovation to gain rainwater and circulate. Any ingeneering brain please contact us.

    Are you a carpenter? We need benches for our sauna.

    Are you familiar with sun collectors(water), we have one unplugged standing arround.

    There are a few more projects....
    And we have table tennis, a mountain hut and a sailing yacht!

    Hei, I'm sorry to add this sentence now, but after gone through the isolation process, we don't wanna go again. Are you vaccinated? Then ... daVinci, where are you? 😉

    one more thing:
    We do not have a car. As you want to explore Switzerland a bit by yourself, consider 2 options:

    cheep tickets through europe and even Switzerland, check here:
    trainline (dot) com

    a half fare pass for public transport. Check here:
    (Here I found, that the half fare pass for trains, busses and boats is CHF 120.- for one month.
    The train ticket from the airport to us and back is 120.- So there you save 60.- already. 1 CHF = 1 € = 1 US$ more or less)
