  • Description


    Welcoming workawayers from June onwards. Prefer an older woman or young couples, but need the occasional DIY man too. I am a nerdy, intellectual, conservative and humble person. No mucho-men, no disco/club-goers, thanks!

    I was once a construction manager and once a talented IT technician/advisor but those professions both lead to "burn-out" ... now retired, in a wheelchair, live carefree and secure on early-pension, making hobbies my life and future. I wish to change the world through my on-line engagement and inventions to be patented or open-sourced. ... never stopped learning, also like to learn from others...and teach others what I can. I prefer to host guests that have similar interests to mine. I do not go to bars or clubs.... I'm religious, conservative, soft, romantic and self-taught in my many skills ... but have some bad habits like; smoking, drinking and eat meat regularly but never excessive. Sometimes I can get quiet and grumpy, but not for long... perhaps that is because I am an old "boomer" haha ...

    There is a lot in Munich to explore and experience. Learn German or English here at home or in the streets or activities. Munich is a student city with many clubs and societies. I have traveled well in Bavaria and also 50+ countries, can share/compare experiences.

    I have been hosting travelers for 15+ years and I love interacting with people from around the world. See feedback, also from couchsurfers.

  • Help


    I need a bit of help, not really "work", but assistance, 1-2 hours/day but not everyday, about 10 hours per week. Please help where and how you can; light household chores, cleaning, improvements, cooking, shopping, visits to the doctor, chatting, events and visits to parks. I clean my own mess. Guests should help voluntary with their own initiative and effort in their own time-planning. I do not like giving commands, do not need a maid, I need very basic household help and some company. Can pay an allowance for special activities like helping with my small Amazon and Ebay shops.
