    Description

    Hello! My name is Tony, 52, and I moved to North Germany from England in 2011 and now live in Blumenthal, a small village about 10 minutes from Kiel.

    I share my home with two cats, a few chickens and occasionally a dog called Milo. I love meeting people from different countries and learning about their cultures and languages - you know, what everyone says on Workaway ;-) . My mother tongue is English, but I am fluent in German as well.

    Internet: Only with LAN cable in the dining room. No WiFi. Mobile phone coverage is poor but probably usable.

    I'm looking for one or two people for about a week to help in my one acre (4000 sq m) garden.

    If you'd like to know anything, feel free to send me a message. Look forward to hearing from you :-)

    You will have your own bedroom, and washbasin, but will have to share my bathroom for bath and shower. If there is no-one staying in the self-contained apartment upstairs, you may use this.

    What else ...

    As I live in a small village, transport connections are not very good. It is pretty quiet here, but if you want more action, there are occasional buses into Kiel or I can occasionally drop you at the local station. Or we may be able to do some trips together.
