Few days ago i've arrived to the very interesting place situated 12km from Chęstochowa. This Rancho is some kind of a summer family house with a lot of extra terrain, two dogs, four cats and ten sheeps. There lives one familiy and they need some help with grass cutting, painting and some other not-skilled labor. You can see on the pictures garage i was working with. My tasks were to dig holes around it and place cement blocks, fix hole above the entrance and do some other small tasks. Also i was cutting trees and hepling with lake cleaning.
Of course someone can call this work a shitty work, or not professional work, but i find it pretty exciting as i'm learning new things every day. For example, it was first time i was riding in the back of a truck (on the picture i'm wearing socks on the picture because we're going to the lake and i'll be wearing rubber boots), it was a first time i was using a chain saw and first time i was using a grass cutting machine.
This was also my first use of HelpX and i'm absolutely glad i've selected this advertisement. Main approach here is that one should work for five hours per day five days a week and will have free food and place to sleep. What is even better - on this Rancho i'm treated not only as a worker - i'm treated as a team member, friend of a family. I can do my work at any time and no one will count my hours (except me of course). I can always ask for help if i don't knowhow to do something or if something is to heavy/complicated for me.
I'm going to stay here for at least one week and than i'll decide where to go next. Or whether to stay here for another week. Or more?..
