Hello dear visitors to our profile. We – Kirsten and Thomas – are living in the beautiful region of Lake Constance. Our daughter herself is currently “workaway”ing in Canada.
We have two cats (and are feeding a lot of stray cats ;) ). Our village is next to the Swiss border, 8 km from Schaffhausen. Our not-that-perfect house is 200 years old and was build by a Jewish family.
We've got a 2500 m2 big garden in the back of our house, which provides us with apples, cherries, sweet chestnuts, berries, plumps and a lot of vegetables.
We are not perfect, you do not have to be perfect either.
we live vegan (but you do not have to live vegan)
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Generally we are very curious about other cultures, their traditions and customs. A big interest lies also in the exchange of different types of cooking, as well as handling of spices.
Due to me, Thomas, speaking only little English, it would be very helpfull, if our guest would be able to speak fundamental German.
If not, we'll surely find another way of communication.
At the moment the garden has to be prepared for spring. Sow and potted plants. Prepare the beds. A greenhouse has to build up.
But there's also a lot of other tasks to be done in our garden as in our house. Handicraft skills and strong arms would surely be helpfull.
In winter there is a wall to tile. Two rooms to be painted.
When it's warmer, in March, a motorboat needs to be painted and cleaned for driving on Lake Constance.
German und Englisch
Our guest will have a big guestroom in our house and his own washroom (might be shared with other guests) including shower and bath.
How many Workawayers can stay?
1-2 persons, male and female,we can accommodate couples :)
Well, cooking together and trying out other traditional foods is a great way to get to know other cultures better.
We have a kayak and a canadier you can use .......
The region next to Lake Constance has a lot of nature and nice scenery to offer. Our village lies next to the High Rhine, where you can swim or paddle.
