    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In general it’s always great to meet people around the world and exchange experience. We traveled quite a lot and had lots of great experiences. I did a lot of events in cologne, I still have contacts and know what’s going on. My wife can teach Taiwanese cooking, drawing, design and photography. I can teach you a lot about starting your own company and become independent while traveling. We as a family have a healthy lifestyle and teach our children to be open for everything and try our best to raise them with two languages and cultures.

    We bought the house five years ago and renovated it and cleared out the garden. We have a big garden and now we want to make it beautiful. It’s mostly about gardening and building. There are areas that need to be cleared. We want to create a play hill for the children. We want to fix an old pool in the garden, creating a wood deck and creating more places to sit around the garden.
    We also happy if you can babysit our children so we can have a date night once in a while. They are both easy going and can handle their own business.
    On rainy days you can help us with housework and the art projects of my wife.
