    Dear workawayer, welcome to my profile!
    I am a primary/Greek teacher, currently a school director and I live with my spanish boyfriend, Manuel. We live in Agios Nikolaos, a picturesque town at the eastern part of the island.
    O.k....what about us... We love travelling and meeting new people from all over the world. I am a very energetic, hard working person! I want to know as much as I can from my guests as they are my teachers about their countries and the alternative way of living and traveling! I want to learn as much as possible from.them! So, please, feel free to help me on that! We also lovelatin dancing...ok. any dancing actually! We also like trekking and running! So, please, join us!

    Usually during the weekdays I need to get out for work, very early in the morning and Manuel mostly stays in the house working around. When you finish offering your help to what we will agree (5 hours/dayX5 days/week/person), you will be free to explore the area with my advices. Sometimes, it is possible to ask you to offer your help during the afternoons or during the weekends so I can be with you to help or explain. In that case, you will have your free time in the morning and your free days during the weekdays.

  • Alojamiento


    The house has 3 bedrooms. You can use my older son's bedroom when he is away for his studies or sleep in the living room on the couch which is very comfortable, when my sons are at home for holidays (christmas, greek Easter, Sunner holidays). You will also have your own WC/shower. Sheets, blankets and towels are provided. Smoke-free home. WiFi is available. Basic products for breakfast will be provided. Products for preparing your lunch also (if I can't cook for all, you have to prepare your own lunch). For dinner something light could be offered. Alcohol and beveragies are not provided. If you have a special diet (for example guten free) you have to supply yourself with the special products you will need for your diet.
    Capo, an adorable and very friendly Cane Corso god lives in my garden!
    Our home is 20 minutes walk from the centre of the town but I very often drive to the centre, or you can use my bike.
    You are not allowed to bring other people with you to my home, without having talked about it with me before.
    We will treat you like a family member/family guest, so please, show the same respect to to my home.
    You are expect to know how to contact your home/family, how to contact your embassy in my country.
    You are going to enter my privacy - that's why I need to get more information about you to decide about your request. Please provide a personal introduction (in your profile and your request), so we are able to get an idea of your personality/habits/thoughts. Please, mind that I don't host people without having full completed profile! Since I am opening my home to you, I find it very important to provide me your full name, phone number and Passport number in return. AN "IDEAL VOLUNTEER" for us is reliable, self-initiative and can work on her/ his own if needed.
    We expect workawayers to be willing to help and not to be lazy.
    PLEASE use as a title of your request the phrase "Voyager of the world", it is really important to show me that you have already read my profile.

    I am also an experienced host in other hosting site so you can read my references from my amazing guests!
    Please don't hesitate and ask all the questions you have. It is important to know all aspects in advance - for both sides.


  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    I live in Agios Nikolaos, a small but really picturesque town of east Crete. It is very famous for its peaceful and crystal clear beaches where you can swim almost all year round, especially if you can stand the water to be a bit cooler than during summer! The nearest one is 10 minutes walk and the centre is at least 20 minutes walk from the house. There are also great gorges and traditional villages around.
    Public Transportation Access: 25 mins walk from the bus station but in the town you don't need trasportation as everything is very close!
