  • Description


    We are Inga, Florian and Philea. We have recently moved to Traben-Trarbach in an old house and are busy with all the possible jobs. Inga is a web developer (in home office), Florian is a social worker, and Philea is an energetic toddler. We also are slowly renovating the house, plant/harvest veggies and fruits in our huge garden. We brew our own beer (in small amounts for private consume). And we have lots of friends visiting us every other weekend. We are active in couchsurfing, bewelcome and warm showers. So we often have guests. It is a lot of action going on every day!

    Mostly we need someone to play with Philea when she comes back from the kindergarden in the late afternoon.
    We would be also happy to have people who have some experience with renovations. We might need to repair the walls of our cellar. Helping hands are welcome!
    If you stay with us, we try to make it feel like a "Wohngemeinschaft" (aka WG); everyone does his part of work to make living together comfortable, cosy and fun.

    You will sleep in a separate room, that you might have to share sometimes with another workawayer, in case there two of you staying with us simultaneously. You will probably sleep on a good mattress (20 cm high) that lies on the floor or on a futon-bed. The room is simple and not renovated.
    If you want, you can sleep in a tent outside in the garden.
