  • Description


    We recently relocated to the countryside of Bohemian Paradise from America and invite Workaway guests to come and explore this magical area, as well.

    Our place is a renovated farmhouse about 160 years old with a newer addition on a large property of flowering bushes, fruit, and walnut trees, that we love, but the landscape needs some creative tender loving care.

    Join us this summer for fence and house painting, building a greenhouse, climbing arbor, vegetable beds, picking fruit and preserving, gathering walnuts and cracking, and other yard work with some cleaning and cooking.
    The ideas are flowing so everyday there is something new.

    Our interests are alternative healing methods and have diagnostic machines, with an extensive library collection of digital and print books, courses and software in English, and mind and body wisdom which we can share with you while here.

    We live in a diverse area of ancient towns, castles, ruins, rock formations with climbing, cave dwellings, volcanic caves, with many other delights so it is always exciting to explore.

    Whatever your talents are, we welcome you, so please consider us and add us to your favorites

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have traveled throughout America, and speak Czech, German, and English you must speak any of those three languages.
    We love to sit around a fire at night and share stories.
    I am told I am a great cook and mix it up with American Mexican, Czech and German.
    You have 2 days off per week to discover the ancient ruins, castles, caves, cave dwellings, rock formations, forests and gardens. On your days off you can join us exploring the area and are responsible for your own expenses in that case, like tickets, or food and refreshments along the way or take the train or bus to places that would interest you. On your days off so is the cook so you prepare the food in the refrigerator and pantry or eat out while you go exploring. You have your own kitchen and shared refrigerator.
