    Description

    *If you would like to practice German, this is not the place for you.*
    Hi everyone, I am Verena and live with my daughter (8) in a flat in Esslingen in southwest Germany.
    We are active workawayers ourselves, but can not travel that much this year, that's why we would like to invite the world to us.
    We are looking for English speaking solo travelling females or moms with their children (above approx. six years old) who would like to stay with us for a while (maybe one or two weeks to start with).
    You and your kids should be fluent in English.
    I work part-time and my daughter attends a democratic school half day.
    I would like to become self-employed and start an online business.
    We love playing, nature, sports (swimming, surfing, snowboarding, running, biking...), eating healthy, reading, movies, being with our extended family and also travelling & meeting new people.
    I eat vegetarian or vegan and I'm very interested in sustainable living and minimalism.
    This is a smoke and alcohol (and other drugs) free household and we usually go to bed before ten.
    In our family we practice unconditional parenting which means no punishment, no rewards, equality and considering each other's opinions and perspective regardless of age.
    We are looking forward to hearing from you!
