Fué mi primer voluntariado con Worldpackers y me ha motivado a seguir haciendo viajes con la App. Una experiencia valiosa en la que aprendí del manejo interno de un Bed & Breakfast y algunos trucos de limpieza 😅. Los dueños del lugar son muy buenas personas, siempre dispuestos a sumergirte en la cultura danesa y permitiendo que disfrutes del tiempo libre. La comida que preparan es deliciosa!!!

Helen was the best host we could have had for our first work-away experience. She tried to make our stay as good as possible.

The garden work was a bit hard, but doable. Most tasks were enjoyable and safe. The housekeeping duties were easy to understand and not that hard.

The only downside in regards to the accommodation was the externally-located bathroom. But everything else was welcoming.

My girlfriend and I spent there one month and a half. The place is really quiet and sorrounded by beautiful landscapes with lovely cities nearby. Our room was comfortable even though the bathroom was outside. Our jobs were exactly as we had agreed. About the food and kitchen, Helene always provided us with everything we needed and asked for, for us to cook and eat. That was super! She also was really caring and empathic when we needed help and support with personal situations out of calendar. We weren´t able to spend so much time with Daniel and Mel but they seem to be very nice people.

I spent a little over a month at Helene's house and I can say that it was a very pleasant experience. She is a generous, patient person and welcomed me very well at her home. I had a really comfortable room. I thank Helene for the opportunity and say that I could return one day.
