My home for three Weeks
My first HelpX in Saint-Jorioz France
It is nearly two weeks here in my first HelpX in France. How did I get here?
First of all I am involved in a HelpX community a bit like Woofing. I send a letter to Sophie (my host) to ask if Julien and I could come and help her, and this is my first letter to her.

Thank you for your interest for out Family. We could actually think of hosting you with your boyfriend from january 4th til january 23d in the apartment in our house available for that period.
I see you have 3 kids. Just wanted To know if they are part of your trip ? Should you give me more détails will be appreciated.
Bonjour Thyda,Thank you very much for your email with all details.We have been thinking about your stay here and actually have changed a little bit our initial proposals about help with the kids since we are quite organized by now since the girls are growing up and can do quite a lot by themselves.We could of course consider with pleasure having you stay in the apartment above ours from january 4th til january 23d. You could go skiing if you wish in the ski resorts around; We would be happy to taste your asian food as well while we are sharing some meals with you once in a while.Our need as helper will be to repaint the walls of the living area and kitchen (ceiling, and walls) of the apartment above ours. Just wanted to know if you could think of it and are both fine with the idea.I don’t think it would take you that long, but I would really appreciate to have it done seriously and carefully.Looking forward to hearing from you,kind regardsSophie
