  • Descripción


    We are a family of 5 in Selfoss Iceland (30 min away from capital): Kristin (41) a dog trainer, Oli (48) a photographer and tour guide, Lina 9y and Margret Sara 6y. Our oldest daughter is 26, she has often worked through Workaway and introduced it to us.
    We have a dog Luna 1 years and a cat Kisi 10 years.

    We recently moved back home from Spain, we live in a small town close to the capital (50 minutes by bus). We live in a nice house with garden. We have a guest room available (shared bathroom with us).
    Our hobbies are: garden work, outdoors, photography, traveling, Brazillian Jiu Jitsu, dogs, dogs and more dogs, did I mention photography :-) and our motto is to have fun in life & enjoy the ride.
    We both run our own business so we both work quite alot, sometimes from home office. My husband is away on average 2 weeks in a month.
    We are looking for someone to assist with the two young girls before they go to school and again in the afternoon and sometimes during dinner, normal household work is needed and attending the garden & of course if we are busy taking care of Luna "the puppy" is also an issue. We offer accommodation and meals & friendship in return.
    I prefer someone who´s looking for longer stay 2-3 months as it´s been hard on my kids to have people staying for very short term. We had 5 workawayers in 2016/17 and I think everybody was happy and gained something from it.... we are still in touch with most of them.
    We only consider people who can stay at least 6 weeks.
    Flexible free time so people can travel the island and experience more than just our home and family :-)
    We prefer people older than 22 years of age. Spanish native speaking would be a huge advantage, one who can teach all 4 of us Spanish and maintain what we already learned !!! English speaking second best.
    No smokers please. We don´t smoke nor use alcohol.
