It feels like home to me…

After Nancy left me traveling alone and spending three rainy days at the beach I finally reached my new home. A 14-bed, 13-bath “playboy-esque” mansion near the Nothern Beaches of Sydney. The house was built 1974 by the american Psychoanalyst Victor Himmelwright, who was looking after his patients here (I know it is at least a little bit spooky. I hope we won’t find any corpses while cleaning the bushes ;)). The ground floor is designed so two rooms are sharing one bathroom. At the second and third floor every room has his bathroom en suite…so if you ask me it is pretty sweet.

I’ve found this homestay on helpx.net, a plattform to get in touch with people who are willing to let volunteer helpers to stay with and work for them in exchange for food and accommodation. As far as I concern that is the best way of travelling since you are getting to know locals, get yourself busy but still have time to explore the area and enjoy yourself (most backpackers usually get a job and then work 10 to 13 hours a day to survive. That sounds like fun…not). The work in this case was pretty easy so far and included ripping out parts of the air condition (putting a rope around it and pulling it out with a truck) and small demolition work. So not to bad.

Besides me having my own room and wardrobe (you don’t know how much you will appriciate this after living out of your backpack for a couple of months), we also have a foosball table (the reason why I signed up in the first place), table tennis, an air hockey and a pool table. So after only three days it is feeling already like home.

Stay tunned

    So, jetzt habe ich mal den Leserückstand aufgeholt. Bin immer noch begeistert über die kurzweilige Schreibweise und noch viel mehr, was Du/bis vor Kurzem Ihr – und hier meine ich in erster Linie Nancy (bei Dir war es ja noch nicht so viel) – so tolles gemacht und erlebt habt. Bin gespannt, wie es weiter geht.

    Das Objekt sieht echt schön aus, da kann man bestimmt was draus machen. Aber pass auf Deine Gliedmaßen auf. 🙂
