Best experience so far. Great location in the mountains, super easy work playing with kids. When the quarantine hit they took care of us for extra weeks. Made a lot of great friends and have a feeling I’ll return ;)

Review written by Simeon

Positives: *Melanie is very supportive of the travelers staying with her. She was helping one girl get a visa and made sure I had hotspot so I could teach online when the WiFi was not working. *fed very well and room was very comfortable *fun to be involved with a family in a big house with 2 energetic boys Negatives: *weren’t involved in the work I was doing, and I got some confusing communication from two different people, so I think nobody (including me) was happy with how much work was finished at the end. *a lot of shouting/fighting in the couple, kind of rude

I have a B.A. in English Professional Writing, a TEFL certificate, and I'm currently taking a B.A. in Spanish Literature and Culture.

Work Experience

When younger, I worked as a chef and waiter. I also grew up working on a farm, and did construction work for several years to pay for university. Now I have been teaching English language since 2012. I also spent a couple years working in advertising and writing web content.

Travel Experience

I have been traveling and working abroad since 2013. From 2013 - 2015 I worked in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. From 2015 - 2017 I worked in Abu Dhabi. Then, I began to backpack Europe. My home base has been in Rijeka, Croatia since 2018.
