I worked as a social worker for young people, I have now been retired for 7 years. In my house I like to invite people from all over the world : foreign students studying in Poitiers, couch surfers and volunteers. My friends in the village and in Poitiers are very happy to meet the students and volunteers from different countries. I lived in Germany for the first 25 years of my life, so my mother language is german, I speak fluent french ( and English) and I think I'm a good teacher for french language, as a learned It when I first came to France.
I have always a lot of things to do in my house and in my garden. I like to share different activities and ideas/conversations with other people.
I'm a "écologique person", I like cooking with fruits and vegetable, make my own jam.
In my free time, I enjoy riding my bicycle, walking, swimming, reading, socializing, visiting the local areas or just relaxing.
Help around the house
I like to show volunteers the beautiful landscape, the little villages around, Poitiers, a roman art town and to participate to festivals nearby, sharing my travel experiences with photos and stories, learning or improving French and German. I like to take an ecological approach to life.
There are painting projects (shutters and windows to do), cleaning garden and general DIY around the house.
If we can speak in Spanish sometimes it could be nice
