    We are a warm-hearted, creative, vegan/vegetarian patchwork family with three boys (14, 9 & 19m), four cats and a dog.
    Manuel is 33, writer, freelance journalist, guitar teacher and has a master in geography. at the moment he is searching for a job and is also trying to push his self - employment. I am Stefanie-Alina, 42, mother and healer, pushing my self - employment too.

    We live in a big old house with a garden in a village 10 minutes from the beautiful city and the lake of Thun.
    We are easy going and open minded and we do our best to treat each other with love and mindfulness.
    We love playing music, listening to music, concerts, festivals, dancing, nature, hiking, spirituality, cultures, languages, reading, good talks, sitting around the fire, cultural exchange, shamanic drumming, cooking vegan meals, gardening, watching good movies and much more. We try to live authentic and conscious. We think that all creatures on earth have the right to live and deserve our love and respect.
