  • Descrição


    Hi, welcome to my profile.
    I'm Joanna, call me Jo
    I'm normally fun loving & gregarious but right now I'm just very tired with too much on my plate & really could do with some kind, energetic person who is happy to help
    I've a few art projects I'd like to have done & some garden clearance, fence building
    I moved full time to Bulgaria 15 years ago
    I have sadly found myself living as a single woman without the abilities to tackle maintenance stuff, due to various problems affecting my hands, back & energy levels, I struggle with physical tasks, oh dear I sound like an old crock, but I try.

    I'm starting a new project & really need help renovating a retro campervan, setting up a lovely eco area for it, building a compost toilet & shower hut & a vegetable garden. Also turning a garden summer house into a glamping pod.

    The camper van will be your accommodation while renovating with use of my shower room, living room for coziness during the colder days/evenings

    I have 6 beautiful mostly rescue dogs who will love you but bark at first due to them being anxious.

    I would love to swap accommodation & good food for some help. If you have a car I can show you some lovely beaches, Yes I'm not far from loads of beaches, if not you can get a bus from my village into General Toshevo & there is a train station in the next village which takes you to Dobrich & Varna.
    I do not drive

    I am pretty laid back & love to socialise over food & Gin.
    I had my first year with Workawayers, 2014, some of which have been a real blessing to me and my last property, helping to turn it into a home.
    It is cosy by the fire in winter & lovely in the spring/summer/autumn I'm on the edge of the village surrounded by farmland. The village is a typical small Bulgarian village with a tiny local bar & shop for snacks drinks & alcohol all of which I do not provide.
    There is much to see & to visit here but also the perfect place to relax & unwind.
    I would love someone who could help set up a business profile/site etc
    I also write short coffee time stories & have a blog but no time to indulge in these pastimes at the moment.

    My home has changed from what is in the photos as I have moved

    I will provide all linen, towels, toilet rolls, use of washing machine once a week, use of hot shower & bathroom.
    I do not provide snacks, alcohol, toiletries, these are your treats

    You can set your own time table work 5, 6 or 7 days a week, I will provide food on all work days but at least one day off is advised to take in the surroundings, go shopping, beach trips, catch up on sleep & local travel

    I cook & bake, so there will be decent food BUT unfortunately I cannot cater for vegans or special diets, other than lazy keto, due to cost of ingredients.
