I am about 50, have travelled around the world and now I am a student at the University of Kassel. I am used to live with younger people in communities. I love music, books, dancing, hiking, travelling, nature adventures, Design, History and Culture.
Its the village of "Little-Red- Ridinghood", the country of the German Fairy tales (written by Brothers Grimm). The next big city is Kassel, famous for its museums, Park Wilhelmshöhe ( Unesco heritage). In the other direction is Marburg, one of the oldest universities of Germany, very oldstyle and romantic archtitecture.
I need help in the garden (cutting branches and trees, digging, planting, collecting wood, general maintenance) and a hand in the house: renovation, painting walls and furniture, sawing,cleaning, sewing and repairing cloths or just house sitting.
You do not have to be skilled in all of that, but should be able to work autonomous.
Most workaways stayed between 1 to 4 weeks. For those, who seek a job, Amazon and Ferrero are closeby.
German, English, Spanish, a bit French, Italian, Portuguese
I got two houses to take care of. One is a huge modern bungalow, very beautyful with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
The other one is an 300 year old typical German Fachwerkhouse, which needs renovation.
Both places have a huge garden and ecological envirement.
The villages are in the center of Germany , all trains north-south stop here and stops of Flixbus are closeby.
Its a good place for cycling, jogging and long-distance-hiking, next to the house is a glider airport (often free rides). In summer there are lakes for swimming, canoeing and big music festivals.
I might help you with transport and show you a bit of the area and historical sites, if you are interested.
