  • Description


    living in a touristic city of lake of Constance i have a huge house with 11 rooms and a 3-room appartment. In summer I rent the app. and 3 guestrooms to tourists.

    i am the mother( 66 years) of 3 grown-up children ( 37,35,28 yrs) who live about 160 km away.
    I studied languages and medicine. I used to travel a lot around all over Europe, USA, Australia,Egypt. I always met wonderful people !
    But my big love is Mexico. I traveled there several times and in 2013 I stayed for 4 months with a family which is now my Mexican family.
    during winter I have students or young ingeneers who do a 6-months practice and write their MA or MBA in a big Company. They come from all over the world and I love to have guests and to meet people.

    As my children now have partners and children, I live alone and need a helping hand some times.
    I understand and speak German, English, French,Italian, Spanish and would like to improve my Spanish.
    There is a piano , guitar and a tuba available, we do any kind of arts.
    Creative and helpful workawayers are very welcome !

  • Help


    right now I need a carpenter to help me with renovating a room, my garden is changing into a jungle without help.

    I want to improve and practice my Spanish, and I hope that there are a lot of Mexican people with workaway I would prefer to host.

    And sometimes I just need s.o. who drives me to another place because my eyes do not like driving at nighttime, for example from Munich to Lindau after opera visit.

    Sometimes I go to Munich or Augsburg to care for my grand-children or I visit my numerous family and friends.
