I'm Sarah and live in an old bricket-build house in the rural area of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. Our place is near the national parks of Müritz and Feldberger Seenlandschaft (10 km distance), so you have a lot to explore there. It's the ideal place for people interested in nature, hiking, bike tours, and so on. You have to be ok with a not such high standard of comfort, as we are heating the house and the water with charcoal and wood in the winter (so it's also good for people who like a medieval-like challenge - the house was built in 1850 :)
I'm looking forward to meet people who love to be with animals like I do - especially dogs and pigs !! :) I'm actually busy with founding an organisation to shelter animals, first pigs and later racoons. I urgently need help around the house, renovation, animal care, and so on - there's really a lot of work to do...
!!!Important note!!! Please only consider to visit us if you LOVE animals and don't care if it's not too clean in the house!!! I am NOT interested in people who find dogs "not hygienic". This is a house for and with animals!!!
Babysitting / child care
Help with Eco project

you can learn several languages if u want (german dialects ;), french, slavic languages), i can teach you some music (piano, singing), u can learn about dogs and other animals, of course u can learn a lot about geography and much about our nature and culture.
construction in house, stable, construction of fences, greenkeeping, help with garden, babysitting so I can do other stuff, care for the animals, go out with the dogs, play with animals & child (1 year old) :), design a website for my small organisation, help me manage charity projects
it would also be nice if you could help me to maintain the household a little, as I tend to be a bit chaotic
German, English, Croatian/Serbian/Bosnian, French, Russian
you will have your own room and we will use bathroom and kitchen together. food will be vegan, we can cook together or if u don't like to cook, i can cook for us :)
there is a bus stop right in front of the house, the bus goes 2-3 times daily to the next bigger city (20 km). shops are in 10 km distant Feldberger Seenlandschaft. i have a car so we can use this too to take u to some special place. there are good bike routes from our place, so this is a good option, too. i can of course pick you up in the next train station by car (Neustrelitz).
!!! Unfortunately there is a big street next to the house, so you need not be too sensitive for traffic noise!!! :-(
Please only consider to come if you are really fond of animals and a rustic way of life! Comfort is not too high in our place! Our dogs belong to our family and sleep in the house, as mostly in Germany, so this should be ok for you. They are former street dogs and therefore are a little "wild" and one is very big, so you should not be afraid of dogs, especially not of big dogs!!
I would like you to respect my wish not to eat meat in our place, as animals are our friends here, not food.
Please bring old clothes or working clothes.
So we are now looking forward to welcome you in our small world!
