  • Description


    We are a family with two small kids (0 and 2) who live in a small town near Marburg in a newly renovated old house with lots of space. We like to have friends over, eat good food, spend time with the kids. There's always work to be done in the garden and we haven't even touched our old barn yet (it's full of old stuff). We would like to host friendly travellers as well as be happy to get some help!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My husband and me are curious, open-minded people who like to travel and meet people. We speak German, English and a bit of Spanish. We like to go on small hiking and bike tours on which you can join us if you want. We regulary invite friends for movie nights and weekend activities.

  • Help


    Because we have two small kids (0.5 and 2.5 yrs old) and haven't quite finished creating the home we dream of we can use a helping hand with a lot of different things:

    In spring there is lots of gardening to do. We also plan to build an extra parking spot and a small greenhouse. We have an old barn which we would like to tidy out. Also its roof tiles urgently need cleaning from moss. If all of these things are done our garden house could use some new colour.

    If that's your thing maybe you could also join me for a flea market to sell some no longer needed stuff. :) (Or we organize our own garage sale and invite some neighbours to join us...)

    In July/August we could need help with babysitting as the kindergarden closes for three weeks. Sometime in summer we also plan a big garden feast for which we could use some creative help. :)

    Our house is a nice place to be and the beautiful old town of Marburg has a lot to offer and is just 15 minutes away. You'll have a small room on your own. You can use the guest bathroom and our kitchen as if it was yours. We live mainly meat-free.

    We are new to workaway and very curious how this will work out. We used to couch surf a lot so we hope this will be equally as much fun! :)
