  • Description


    Hello dear adventurers 😊

    We are a cosmopolitan young family with a lot of heart and 2 wonderful children (girl born in 2015, baby boy in 2020). We live in the idyllic countryside in the tranquil village of Leuthen. We have 2 cats and 5 ducks in our family on an approximately 2000 square meter property.

    My husband (41) and me (30) are able to communicate in English well - however, it would be desirable if you had a basic knowledge of the German language in order to come into contact with our children 😊

    We look forward to getting to know you, to an exciting exchange and a great time together 😊
