Hi dear workaway, my name is Marijke and we live in the country side near the city of Sint-Niklaas, located between Ghent and Antwerp. I work as a translator (currently on sick leave), I'm 49 years old. I am divorced (since August 2017) but live together with my new husband Wim, 50 years old. He is an independent industrial engineer. We got married November 30th 2018!
I have a 22 year old daughter Joline from my first marriage who works as a nurse in Ghent where she lives as well.
We would like to welcome a HANDY workaway (aged between 20 and 35), preferably for the period July 19th till August 5th. Due to knee joint transplants in the past, I specifically need help with taking care of the DOMESTIC ANIMALS (feeding, cleaning the cages, ...), gardening and small farming..., general household tasks, cleaning, .... So we're especially looking for someone who is more or less skilled in those tasks and who loves working with animals! Although we a huge animal lovers, we CANNOT accept workawayers who bring their own dog as this might cause conflicts with our own 2 dogs and 3 cats. Sorry!
Our guest can learn about our culture, participate in daily life in Sint-Niklaas, visit sights during the weekends, have fun with the family and the domestic animals we own. She/he can learn our language, or one of the languages we speak and we could learn from the guest. It would be great to have a nice and helpful person staying with us! Looking forward to meeting you!!!!
Marijke, Wim and Joline
