    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You would have the experience of living on the beautiful island of Antigua in the Caribbean and the opportunity to make many new contacts from around the world. Especially if you were interested in maybe working in the yachting industry in the future. You would also learn many tips on healthy eating and natural living from Anna. Also improve your English.

    Antigua is a big island and a lot of exploring and sightseeing to be done. I have been going there on and off since 2005 and not done it all. Some lovely beaches, bush walk, bars, restaurants within walking distance. In and around the Marina is a lot going on socially and also tennis courts, squash and yoga classes in the area. Basically we need help with getting kids ready for school in the morning, two or three mornings you would take them to school as Anna plays tennis occasionally. School finishes at 2pm and by 3pm you would be required to do afternoon fun with the kids, play dates, pool, beach swims, bbqs. Paddle boarding, birthday parties or just sit with wine on the beach to listen to live bands. Jack needs to keep up with his Spanish homework and between you and Anna give each child one on one attention. They love books so appreciate any time spent reading to them. They also need to be spoken to in a spanish often so they don't forget once they return to school in Mallorca here in the summer. Other duties which you will do together are basic house work, general tidying up after kids and ourselves, dishes, laundry, driving, shopping, spanish homework and cooking/ preparing healthy meals. the kids and Anna are wheat and lactose intolerant. We eat a lot of fruit and vege, fish and chicken occasionally and no red meat in Antigua unless it's organic.
