    Description

    Hi everyone!

    Its the 7th year now we are hosting workawayers and some like more than 90 people came by...
    First of all I really want say A BIG >>Thank you!<< to everyone who makes this possible and of course everyone who ever came to our place! Its not fun - its not work - its a private experience of welcoming strangers, we the hosts <> you the travellers...and being open to whatever happens! The fun; the help; the exchange of ideas; the world we all carry within us... So, thank you all for being our guests and sharing time and experiences!!!

    Actually the requested help for us will be according to your skills, gardening, general maintaineance, childcare, renovation. You will have a room for yourself.

    We are a familiy living in region which was very very quiet and peaceful - before we arrived here 5 years ago ;-)
    (Taunus-forrest near Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, Mainz). Having two houses with a nice garden close to a forrest and an old castle with a stunning view. Our Kids are running around here. They are asking for YOUR play-power!!!
    We enjoy having fun working together and our focus is the life of our kids, keeping us busy ;-)

    We live 40min drive north of Frankfurt in the middle of nowhere in a nice little village surrounded by streams and forrest. we installed ourselves in this place late 2016. Its still the feeling of: we just started - so there are still BASICS to do...shaping the garden, building rooms, clearing space, making things pretty...

    We try to keep life simple (ha-ha "as if germans are famous for simplicity" ) and hope to be able to help you having a great time here together. We could use some support in the project of building things like gardening, digging, fixing things in and outside and also with the children, maybe household. Same time we are about to renew rooms or build in facilities. Many chances for you also to be creative where you like...we are very open to let you shape the place with your very welcome creative energy!

    Also we are very easy going about time scedules...with you together we only want to keep it "levelled" - giving and taking - and besides that you simply do as you please...

    see you soon? ;-)

    Welcome to us!

    !!!Many thanx for the excellent feedback we have recieved.
