    Description

    I need a workawayer/s for November 24 till January 14.
    Also welcoming Workawayers later in 2022, see my calendar.

    I am a nerdy, intellectual, conservative and humble person. In 2018 I had my right leg amputated because of diabetes, but my spirit is still great.

    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 online 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. I am a smoker, but the apartment is well ventilated.

    My hobbies and interests; inventing, philosophy, astronomy, astrophysics, space travel, photography, Amazon-book- sales, home-cinema, classical music, ebay-shopping, formula-one racing, community work, plane-spotting, eco-villages, music & art, gardening, traveling, romance, cooking, religion, politics, humor...

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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. I have had good experiences with hosting couples, also with toddlers/kids.

  • Help

    Help

    A bit of help needed, not really "work", but assistance, about 3 hours/day , 5 days per week, flexible. Please help where and how you can; light household chores, cleaning, improvements, cooking, shopping, chatting, events and visits to activities or 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, need very basic household help and some company. Cash reward is possible for very special activities like helping with major home improvements or help with my small Amazon and Ebay shops or special ventures. I can also host couples to share the work-load, also with a toddler or kid no problem, have great experiences hosting groups, partners and families. Maximum stay 8 weeks.
