Do you like Boats?
My lovely partner Alex and I need some help cleaning and painting our sailing yacht, which is currently out on the Brisbane River.
We can offer you:
*Food and accommodation. You will have your own furnished room in a large house. Bus stop outside the gate and train to the city just 700metres away. We have a lovely big vegetable garden and use as much as we can grow ourselves in our cooking.
*there is a bicycle you can borrow
*Wholesome home-cooked meals. We like to make our own pickles and jam and bread etc and can accommodate for gluten free easily or vegetarian.
* Our great company! We love to socialise, have a drink, talk about politics and the universe, organics, gardening,sailing, brewing, permaculture and the places you have been!
* Adventure, sleeping on the boat is definitely an option if it takes your fancy. She is a beautiful 38 foot sailing yacht anchored on the Brisbane river. A great spot for BBQ's, fishing or just watching the sun go down and the stars come out.
What we would like in exchange:
*Help with painting and paint preparation of our sailing yacht.
*cleaning and general tidying of the inside of the boat.
*You don't need experience just an ability to follow instructions closely and put in physical effort.
*4 hours per day. Usually from about 9am or 10am for one week or more is ideal. Or can make other arrangements like 8 hours one day and day off the next etc. Happy to discuss other arrangements too.
We have hosted many travelers through couch surfing and help exchange over the last 10 years or so and love the exchange of cultures that takes place. We are very easy going and accepting of all kinds and love hearing stories from travelers about what excites them and makes them passionate.
In you reply it's wonderful to know a bit about you so we can get excited about learning more of you and your country.
As for ourselves we are a very happy couple who have spent 6 of our 10 years together sailing through places like the Whitsunday islands and exploring the great barrier reef and hidden bays along the coast of Queensland and NSW. We currently have very ordinary day jobs while we save up to buy land for a permaculture farm.
We need a fit person who can start as soon as possible. Preferably you can stay for at least one week and project could last up to 6 weeks if you are interested in a longer term stay.
We can't wait to hear from you!
Suzanna and Alex.
Will reply to emails and text messages. We both work long hours so best to leave it to us to call you to arrange finer details. Thanks.
