  • Descrição


    Hello workawayers!

    We are Rodrigo (49), Carola (48) and Manuela (24), a chilean family living in Viña del Mar. We are in the central part of Chile, really close to Santiago the capital.
    We are looking for a dog lover, because we need help taking care of our dog Beto. He is an 11 years old Golden Retriever, he's part of the family! He's now an elderly and quiet dog.
    We are pretty busy: Rodrigo works as a law teacher, Carola works at a forest school and Manuela is a medicine student. That's why it's difficult for us to be at home to give him love and walk him 3x a day (we live in an apartment).

    Beto usually eats between 7-8am and has his morning walk (20-30min), has lunch at 13:00 + a short walk around the corner and eats dinner at 18:00 before his final walk around 20:00 (20-30min). Apart from that he sleeps the whole day! Sometimes when we are at home, for example in the afternoon, we love to walk him!! ;)
    This means that you will have plenty of free time during the day, so it's good if you have a lot of interests and energy to explore the city and its surroundings. Of course you will have 2 days off every week (probably the weekend).

    I (Manuela) travelled around Europe doing workaway for 20 months (2020-2021)! Now I'm back home because I need to finish my medicine studies.
    I spent 6 months in Italy and it was my favorite country! My main goal was to learn Italian and now I would love to practice it with somebody, so it would really be a plus if you are a NATIVE ITALIAN speaker :) I am preparing to take the C1 exam and some help would be appreciated.
    We are half dutch and lived 4 years in the Netherlands and I spent 4 months working as an au pair there. We love the country and my brother is now studying there! So if you speak DUTCH instead of Italian, it would be amazing too!

    Some important things to know:
    We don't smoke and can't stand the smell, so please no smokers :)
    We love to have a healthy lifestyle, don't eat much meat (Manuela is vegan, so if you're too or want to try it out, even better!)

    IMPORTANT: We don't host couples, families or parents with kids. Only 1 workawayer at the time and preferably someone between 20-30 years old, Manuela's age).
