  • Description


    we are a family of three: Ina (44), Marc (41) and Rio (7).
    We travel a lot and we want to give back the hospitality we experienced from so many nice people. We are workawayers as well.
    When we aren't traveling we live in our house with a big garden in the south of Germany.
    Just behind our house there is 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, indoor cats and sometimes foster dogs.
    Rio is shy in the beginning, but he adapts 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. When 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.
