  • Description


    Hello, we are looking forward to meet other people of different countries. We are not able to travel around so much, so this is a fantastic possibility to meet anyhow. ;-)

    We are a family with three daughters (22,15,11) and a few different animals (dog, cats, ducks, chicken, bees), living in a small village in Bavaria. If you like the mountains or nice trips with the bike you have many possibilities for all aims. If you like to go to towns, we have a station where you can get to Munich in 1 hour. There are also a few nice little towns which are worth to visit. Many nice lakes are around us, too. You can find more informations about our village/region in the internet. Look after MUNICH/MURNAU/BAD TÖLZ/WEILHEIM/TEGERNSEE/LENGGRIES/STARNBERGER SEE/AMMERSEE....these are some towns and lakes not far away....

    It would be nice spending time with you and sharing a part of your whole journey with you!
    After our first workaway experience with Janine we are absolutely convinced that workaway is a wonderful thing with many possibilities for everybody! And I get more and more convinced about it after now hosting different other nice workawayers!! I will not stop it. ;-)

    We will be happy to get some support in the everyday dutes like cooking, household, school things, language exchange (especially Spanish), gardening, but also some renovating painting....There will be always some nice jobs everyday, but we are not having a big project or something like this.

    We are easy with the rhythms of living together, talking, meeting and also separating again.
    Like it feels comfortable for everyone.

    Me, Martina, I lived many years in living communities and it was one of my best times. I am glad to be able to experience it again in this way.

    If it is necessary for you: We are eating "everything", but mostly vegetarian and vegan. We are not in a different religion or confession, but feeling close to Buddhism. Our eldest daughter is sometimes living in another town (for studying) but also here at some weekends. They are also looking forward for "new housemates" and how changing it will be for their life?

    Changing, but I am sure!, absolutely worthful to go along with this project. Let's try it again and again!
    I like to get to know new people and also get to them in a good contact. Because I think this is always possible nevertheless where you are from or how you are or what else. It makes me happy and I can experience a lot of myself.... I like to discover new people and at the same time me.

    So, feel welcomed and send us a message, if you are interested in meeting us, too.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our region offers many possibilities for nature trips and so on. Also Munich, as a wonderful town to visit, is not far from here. My husband is working in Munich, so it will be easy for you to get there. There are some good trains and busses to nice smaller towns around here. We can also help you with your wishes for your visit here, make things together that you are interested in (if it is possible for us....not things like Skydiving ;-)) and we like to talk and to spend time together.
