we are a family of three: Ina (43), Marc (41) and Rio (6).
We travel a lot and we want to give back the hospitality we experienced of so many nice people.
If we don´t travel we live in our house with a big garden in the south of Germany.
Just behind our house there is a forest and meadow but you can walk to our small citycenter within 20 minutes. The cities Stuttgart, Ulm and Tübingen can be reached within an hour or two.
We like to go on small hikes, go to the public swimming pool or a small lake, meet friends and explore the area with our van.
Marc is a graphic designer for textile printing since many years. His hobby is to cook, he always has a list with new recepies to try. He is also interested in future technology.
Ina loves gardening and cares for many beds full of perennials and ornamental grasses, we also grow some vegetables and berries. There are also some pets: rabbits, a cat and sometimes foster dogs.
Rio is shy in the beginning, but he adopts quickly to new people/ situations. We would be happy, if he learns some English while playing with our volunteers.
For our workawayers we provide a private room, the bathroom is shared with us. If it comes to food you can help yourself in our kitchen and use the food from our pantry or we discuss who wants to cook and we eat together. You can use our bicycle. We are happy to show you around and do some daytrips together on the afternoons/ weekends.
Sometimes we need help with bringing our boy to school, sports or friends or just to the playground.
We also need help in our garden: mowing the lawn, cutting hedges (hard work), weeding, preparing the compost and so on. General maintenance/ cleaning in the house is also welcome.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
While staying with us you can not learn that much 🙂. As the main tasks are cleaning the house, basic gardening, cooking and sometimes childcare. And I think that is not to difficult...
Your schedule could be (flexible):
8 am: breakfast
9 - 12: tidy up the kitchen, vacuuming,
dusting, preparing a simple lunch
12 - 2pm: lunch and break
2 - 4pm: gardening
After that there is enough time to explore the area. We are happy to show you around and do some daytrips together on the afternoons/ weekends.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
