  • Description


    Hi, I'm Regine, living in Germering, a small town just outside Munich. I live in my flat in a house for two families with a garden and there's always a lot of work to do in and around the house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Germering is very near to Munich, just 20 minutes on the suburban train to go to the center of Munich, and there are beautiful lakes in the area and the Alps, on a day off you could go for a hike there. So you could do a lot of sightseeing and outdoor activities. And I would also love to do a language exchange, German for Spanish, Greek, French, and start learning Farsi or Arabic.

    I'm a pharmacist and very much into holistic medicine, homoeopathic remedies, Bach Flowers, I made a lot of plant essences. And I'm giving energetic healing sessions. So if you're interested in this area or in spirituality, like meditations and the Mayan Calendar, we could also exchange our wisdom in this field.

  • Help


    As there's always a lot if things to do around the house and especially in the garden, I'm looking for help. It would also be great to have someone who helps cooking. And please note than I'm a vegetarian, preferably I even eat vegan.
    We're still having construction work outside the house and there are a lot of things that have to be put in their place again, like the wood for the oven for instance. And there's still some work to do in the garden, like mowing the lawn and helping to cut twigs off the trees. It would also be great if someone would be able to chop wood!
    And there's still a basket with cloths to repair, if you have sewing skills. I would also appreciate help with adjusting the colours of my recently digitalized color slides, they unfortunately lost colour during this process.
    But above all I love to get to know people, especially spiritual people and exchange ideas.

    Si solo hablas español, no sería un problema, hablo español también y siempre me gusta conversar en español. Si tienes problemas a entender lo que he escrito en inglés, pregúntame. Necesito ayuda en el jardín y para ordenar las cosas, como la leña por ejemplo, después de las obras afuera de la casa. También sería bien si sabes cocinar bien, pero soy vegetariana!
    Si tu parle seulement, de sera bien aussi ! J'ai besoin d'aide au jardin, à ranger les chose après les travaux de construction dehors de la maison et a cuisinier. Mais je suis végétarienne !
    Μιλάω και ελληνικά, αλλά όχι τόσο καλά.

  • Accommodation


    I have a guest room with a mattress on the floor. This would be your private room. There will be breakfast (if you don't want to leave too early) and at least one more meal included, but you probably would have to help to prepare it.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I think about three or four hours a day off help would be enough, the rest of the day you would be free. And we can always talk about it when you want days off to go to Neuschwanstein or the Alps it somewhere else where you need a whole day.
    My house is about 7 minutes walk away from Harthaus, a station of Munich public transportation, there goes a train every twenty minutes to Munich center, you'll reach Munich central station in twenty minutes from here. And Harthaus still belongs to the inner district of Munich public transport.
    I already hosted a lot if couchsurfers here and they really loved my place, the garden really is a little paradise, but a natural, not a very cultivated one. I got a lot of great references on Couchsurfing, if you want to have a look.
    I live my life quietly, so it's not a party place! But I love to have new people here and cultural exchange.
    And, please note, no smoking inside the house!
