  • Description


    Hallo everybody,
    we are a young family in a big house with garden and a couple of animals.
    As we moved into the house a few month ago, there are so many projects, ideas and renovations to do.
    We have work for everybody, whatever is your talent, preferences or interests...

    We have a very nice countriyside around, you can go to town, Chiemsee (the bavarian see), walk in the Alps (60km from our place), Munich is a 1hour drive away, 3km to the next town ...

    We are working much, but there is always time to relax, celebrating, communicating, touring... having fun!

    When we are outside doing our chores and projects in every weather it is no work for us, more a passion and joy.
    It would be great if you think similar. We try to raise our doughter bilingual, so it would be great (but not abslutely necessary) if you speak a good english. But people of all nations are welcome, talking with hands and feet can be funny as well!
    If you have an experienced hand with horses you can help me with the youngster, which is not trained at all (he`s been with us since beginning of November). Also, the two older mares could need a nice hand.
    I give riding lessons (in other stables) and would like to use the ponies for children someday, which requires some trainging before...

    There are two Pianos a Guitar, a E-bass ans a few Note Instruments in the House...

    After finishing our studies, we traveled through west Europa with our bicycles and worked on different WorkAway places as well.
    We try to live in harmony and respect for each other and the animals.
    Beside the three horses there are a few sheep, a cat and a dog. Chicken would be great which could be another project as well…

    You would live with us in the house, in your own room.
    Of course, we would teach you the German language if you want.

    We have internet connection, but no TV.

    Mostly we eat vegetarian, but occasional burger sessions can happen ;)

    We are looking forward to get to know different people and work and live together.
