The Experience

Help is varied and we will try to adjust to your strengths, we often need help with Painting the house, a little gardening, organisation of things - cupboards, rooms, general cleaning. Decluttering - we're not in dire need, but it seems to be something I need to keep on top of to stop it getting out of hand! Possibly help with IT issues, a little dog care May be scope for some artistic project - if you have talents in this direction.

They were very accommodating and really made an effort to ensure I was comfortable, enjoying the local area and well fed. The meals were very delicious and really catered to my diet. The location is amazing and in the heart of everything. They are very good about hours and never asked to stay for extra work. I would also do dishes in the evening and think its good to have an understanding of that. It was an enjoyable experience. You will get a good idea of some real cultural opinions and differences. We had some great evenings hanging out, listening to music and they are a joy to be with.
