That's our family: My wife Carina (33), our children Benedikt (5), Henrike (3) and Clara (1) and me, Andreas (34). We live together in our house in a little village called „Ankum“ in lower saxony, Germany.
We are searching for two workawayers who will support us builduing our garden shed. The garden shed now stands in the garden of Carnas father. The shed must be reduced and rebuilt.
Our house is big enough, we have to guestrooms so there ist space for another persons. We are very open minded and interested in learning other cultures. Thas why we hope we can meet many interesting people with workaway.
