    Description

    Hi. I am Susana, a plastic artist, and my old house is also my workshop. I live in a beautiful mountain town, on the so-called "Wine Route" of Alto Penedés, 30 km from the city of Barcelona. A very popular place for cyclists and hikers. I have two rooms: one with a double bed, and the other with two single beds. I also speak Spanish and Catalan, Italian, some Portuguese, and quite bad English, but with good will, everything is understood.

    Hola. Soy Susana, artista plástica , y mi antigua casa es también mi taller. Vivo en un bonito pueblo de montaña, en la llamada "Ruta del vino" del Alto Penedés, a 30 km de la ciudad de Barcelona. Un lugar muy frecuentado por ciclistas y caminantes excursionistas. Dispongo de una habitación. Hablo además de castellano y catalán, italiano, algo de portugués, y un inglés bastante malo, pero con buena voluntad, todo se entiende.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In addition to offering a house and simple and healthy food, I offer to learn drawing, painting and clay modeling techniques with me for sculpture. In case of agreeing on a particularly complex job, we could talk about financial compensation for it.

    Además de ofrecer casa y comida sencilla y saludable, ofrezco aprender conmigo técnicas de dibujo, pintura y modelado de barro para escultura. En caso de acordar algún trabajo especialmente complejo, podríamos hablar de una compensación económica por el.

    I need someone who knows something about gardening and horticulture. I will value knowledge in roof repair. Any practical knowledge is appreciated as I am restoring and painting the house, which is from 1928.

    Workawayers can visit museums and the city of Barcelona itself, which is beautiful, just 30 km away. In the area there are "cavas" (wineries). There is no good public transport from the town, but there are regular buses from the neighboring town. Of course if you have your own vehicle it is more comfortable. In my town there is a small Gothic quarter, and they can visit some curious corners.

    Los workawayers pueden visitar museos y la misma ciudad de Barcelona, que es preciosa, a solo 30 km. En la zona hay "cavas" (bodegas).No hay buen transporte público desde el pueblo, pero si autobuses regulares desde el pueblo vecino. Por supuesto si disponen de vehículo propio es más cómodo. En mi pueblo hay un pequeño barrio gótico, y podrán visitar algunos rincones curiosos.
