Update - just for a week or so at the end of November 2019 we need someone to help prepare for a party and play music at the party. It will be an acoustic party so guitar or piano skills would be best so people can sing along (ballads, rock, pop). It would be ideal if you can speak German and English.
We also need a carpenter or someone handy with wood working to help us build a relatively simple staircase to the garden.
We are a small, easy-going, bilingual German/Irish family living near Heidelberg. We've had many great Workaways over the last 2 years help us out with everything from IT to painting and the experience has always been so rewarding. This is the closest I get to backpacking these days and I love that my boys get to meet so many different personalities. Having Workaways enable me to spend more time with my kids and manage the workload better.
We play drums, guitar, keyboards, chess, football, darts and pool. We have a small dog. We are flexible to the length of stay. Staying with us would best suit people who are quite independent and intuitive :) We're willing to pay for work done outside the Workaway framework.
We look forward to meeting you 😊
Some workaways have taken language courses in Heidelberg and/or joined local clubs. Our village is relaxed with an open air swimming pool in summer, community centre, walks, cycle paths and lots of nature.
Currently we require carpentry/building skills to help build stairs to the garden.
