    About us as a family.
    We are: Nora, Iva and Mario, an unusual family that lives in two places during the year. In Vienna - Austria and in Labin (Barbići) - Croatia. We come to Istria many times because we have a holiday house that we rent during the season. Iva (48) is a nurse in Vienna. Nora (11) is in the sixth grade of a school in Austria (fluent in English). Mario (63) is mostly a musician, a composer who does a lot of other work. Mario is most often in Istria. Iva speaks English, German, Italian and of course Croatian. Nora speaks English, German and Croatian, of course. Mario speaks German, Croatian and tries to speak English (improving day by day).

    In addition to the house we are renting, we have another one that is under renovation and a lot needs to be completed. So, we need help building an old, stone house and finishing work on a rental house.
    We also have time to socialize with music. There are also creative jobs, such as building a waterfall by the pool with a slide. Completing a barbecue and socializing corner.

    Some information about Mario, who will be the host in Istria!

    My name is Mario and I live on the route Vienna - Istria (Labin). I speak German and Croatian, and English is developing. My mother is Italian (father Italian, mother Slovak), and father German (mother Hungarian, father German), born in the former Yugoslavia. I am 63 years old and still very lively. I often collaborate with young musicians, so my spirit is still young.
    I have two loves in my life. Family and music
    I am the father of three children from two marriages. Dario (38) and Nella (33) and from the second marriage Nora (11) and Niko, my wife's son from the first marriage, as my fourth child.
    In Istria, we rent a house for vacations and we want to renovate another old, stone house that is located near the house for tourism.
    I have a home studio where I compose and in addition to composing and working at home, I also make music videos for the songs I compose. This is just in case anyone is interested in listening.

    A few days ago, we bought a camper trailer that should be used for housing Workawayers. To begin with, it is necessary to put the camping house in order. It should be a home for two people. We need to establish the possibility of independent stay in a caravan. We will agree on cooking and food without any problems.

    Until this is resolved, the bathroom in the house is available.
    Among other things, I am working on the restoration of an old stone house, and I need help there as well.

    I would like the travelers who come to be cheerful, sociable, empathetic and to speak GERMAN, CROATIAN or English (I am still developing that language). I love the company and the honest atmosphere.

    There is the possibility of playing music, preparing food together. It would be good if WW (Workawayer) had their own transport (car, motorcycle, bicycle). And if they don't have them, I have 2-3 bikes available.
    WW can participate in the desired activities after providing assistance to the host for 5 hours, five days a week.
    By agreement, we can go out for a drink together if the situation allows. I like to hang out and make music if someone is ready for it.
    I am a sociable person who has worked with children in kindergartens and cared for the elderly in Vienna for years.
    I make contacts easily because I am very open, direct and truth-oriented.
    I would be glad if we could cooperate and create something useful together.
    I consider Workawayers part of the family.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    I am an audio and video producer, was a participant in a TV talent show and can share why I signed up for the popular show, how he delighted the jury and the audience with the performance of the song "Lasciatemi cantare", how I think about such ways of presenting, how I cope with exposure and what thrilled me the most in filming the show. We are interested in exploring other cultures and especially culinary experiments around the world. Since we speak several languages, some of the volunteers can improve their knowledge of foreign languages. In the area where we live there are a large number of nations and religions that can be seen in architecture, cuisine, etc.
