We are a family of 5. Our kids are 5, 3 and 1 year old. We live on a top of a mountain in south-west Poland, 7 km from Czech republic and 50 km to Germany. Our region is very beautiful and interesting. We run a travel agency showing the region to tourists. We are open to new cultures and languages. I speak englis and Russian and a bit of Italian and my husband speaks English. I also work at home doing translation jobs. We love sports, especially yoga and running, we also love excursions. We try to be out of home at weekends, as our region is perfect for travelling. We have no TV at home, as we like peace and nature more than sitting in from of the telly. Our kids know a lot about the nature that surrounds them, they know the types of trees etc. our place is unique thanks to the fact it is surrounded by forest and meadows, we lead quite a secluded life here, we have clean air, you can feel it with every breath. We also have snow at winter, which is not so obvious in the other parts of Poland.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
The place is perfect if you wish to have rest from everything as it is surrounded by forest and meadows. There is no asphalt road, no traffic, no people. You can have a long walk in the forest every day, go barefoot on grass, listen to birds and wind all the time. We run a small travel agency showing our region to tourists so we can show you all the most interesting places here, we love excursions. We also love to share expereince with foreigners so if you want to find out something about our culture, we are ready to share. We live in mountains, so if you like hiking, you will be very happy living with us.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our olders kids are 5 and 3 years old, they are very open and willing to learn. On the other hand, due to the closeness to nature, they are also well-bahaved and easy going. We need somebody who will spend some time with them playing and speaking English (but other languages than English are also welcome), reading books, going for a walk, just everyday things, kids love. Most of the time they will be in the kindergarten during the week, so we would need your help at weekends or afternoons. Occassionally, you can take for a walk our youngest kid (to the forest around).
