IN THE NICEST MIDDLE OF NOWHERE YOU CAN IMAGINE :)
We live on a farm in the North of Germany between Baltic Sea and North Sea, between Neumünster and Itzehoe approx. 60 km north of Hamburg. We are a family with three kids (17, 19, 21), who are mostly on their own way already, apart from our daughter - she will finish school in 2018. One of the boys is studying in Kiel and the other one is travelling for one year after finishing school. You can imagine with which kind of organisation. Surprise – he is travelling with workaway in UK.
Back to our place: We run a farm with ponds, lakes at several locations, have fisheries, shops and an angling park, where people can enjoy fishing and mother nature. Apart from different species of fish we breed Scottish Highland cattle and where ever we are, you will find at least one dog. We have a pony, hens and not just a small garden surrounding our house and the house pond, which is always good for a bath, the warmer the better.
There is a lot of work in the middle of nowhere and we are happy to have a good team to keep things running and performing during the whole year.
We have heart about workaway, when our son looked for a job in Dublin and met a workawayer, he registered and got the first job at the next day - brilliant.
We like to live in the middle of nowhere, we are team workers, humorous, fair-minded, straight and have always time for a joke.
As we all are convinced, the principle of workaway is a phantastic way to travel and help in a foreign country, it suggests itself to become a host for workaway and open also our house for travelling people.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
You learn more about the German traditional country life and enjoy typical German food and nature in Schleswig Holstein. Visits in Hamburg, Kiel and Neumünster open doors to museum, cinema, shops, etc
Help is needed here and there on the farm, in the house, in the garden or in the angling park, depends on the skills of the “workawayer”.
Should you be here for a longer time, help in the angling park could be possible, but some skills in German language are required for this.
You have your own room with a double bed and a bathroom next door. Double bed is good for a travelling couple or a single person.
Logistically you can reach the next village with a bus stop in few minutes, the city Neumünster in 20 minutes, beaches, Kiel, Hamburg, Heide or Denmark in less than an hour.
