That's our family: My beautiful wife Carina (33), our childrens Benedikt (5), Henrike (3) and Clara (8 Month) and me, Andreas (34). We live together in our house in a little village called „Ankum“ in lower saxony, Germany. Our next project is to renew the old pond on our property to a natural swimming pond. Because our house is big enough for another person and we are very open minded and interested in learning other cultures we hope we can meet many interesting people with workaway.
Help in the house
We can show you the beautiful way of living in the country side of germany. If you want, you can take part in our daily living. We often have friends at home to have a barbecue or thinks like that. Maybe you prefer to visit interesting places like the university city osnabrück or hamburg alone. Then we will help you to get there.
Until now i renew the old pond by myself. So if you have two hands and if you like working in the garden, you can help us. For every specialised workings, we have a company with skilled workers. Because i'm working at home, i can always help you, if it's required. At least you should now, that you can help us in the garden at any time of the day.
