 Min stay requested: at least 2 weeks

  • Description


    I was once a construction manager but it lead to "burn-out" ... now retired, 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, 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 am religious, conservative-progressive, soft, romantic and self-tought in my things ... but have some bad habits like; smoking, drinking and eat meat regularly... sometimes I can easily get grumpy ... perhaps that is because I am a "boomer" haha

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There is a museum in Munich for nearly everything, even a "Potato Museum". Most museums cost only €1 on Sundays. 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 welll in Bavaria and also 50+ countries, can share/compare experiences.

    I have been hosting travellers for many years and I love interacting with people from around the world.

    If you wish to get a full-time job while you stay with me, it is OK. See
    Maximum stay is two months (8 weeks) according to tenant rules, unless we fall in love!

    I lost a lower-leg in 2018 but with a prosthesis, I am still very motivated and active, need a bit of help, 1-3 hours/day but not everyday. Please help where you can; light household chores, cleaning, improvements, cooking, shopping, chatting, events and visits to parks. I clean my own basic mess. Guests should help voluntary with there own initiative and effort in their own time-planning. I do not like giving commands, do not need a maid!
