  • Description


    Hello, I'm Kinga from Warsaw, Poland. I'm trained as psychologist but work as a coordinator of culinary projects involving refugees. I studied in Florence, Italy and love the Mediterranean lifestyle, travelling and experiencing different parts of the world - a good way to avoid the hard Polish winter:-). I'm an open-minded person who loves nature and simple outdoor activities (walking, cycling, gardening)&reading. I also like cooking.
    Recently I am interested in wine making, organic farming and permaculture.
    Together with my husband – philosopher, English teacher & musician, two daughters (12 and 14 years old) and our dog in the summer we live between a small but nicely renovated house in the beautiful Renaissance town of Kazimierz Dolny and a 150 years old wooden country house nearby, both at the Vistula river.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We would like our daughters to learn languages and spend time with people from other countries. We have been traveling a lot ourselves and love to meet people from other parts of the world and talk about politics and lifestyles.

    We spend most of our summer months gardening, biking, hanging out on the beach and visiting the surroundings; you`re welcome to join. You will have plenty of free time. To see Kazimierz with its gorges, Nałęczów, Lublin (easy access to public transportation, bikes available ). Plenty of internet access and things to do although party lovers may not be satisfied.

    CURRENTLY - for summertime (July-August) - we are looking for someone to come and help with house&garden&kids - able to teach them a little bit of French/Spanish and/or practice English with them, for 1 week of trial and then - if we go together well - you can stay longer:-).
    We are able to offer max 5 hours a day, 5 days a week (weekends off), to max 2 people, in exchange for accommodation in a single or double room and varied, healthy food or – sometimes – at least ingredients so you can feed yourself.
    We are looking for someone to help also around the house and in the garden - as long as you`re responsible and have common sense it should be easy work.
    Creativity and new ideas are always welcomed.
    Cooking and especially cleaning are shared tasks!
