    Martin is running the development section of a facility for people with special needs and likes to bike, hike and ski.
    - Nela (*1993) is the oldest daughter and she lives in Graz, however, she will come for a weekend visit pretty often. She loves to cook and party.
    - Matteo (*2000) is studying economics in Germany and he has traveled as a workawayer. He’s very outdoorsy and practiced in the Austrian Olympic Center (Badminton).
    - Carle (*2002) attends high school focusing on sports. He’s very athletic and loves to do platform diving in summer. He needs help with English, Maths or Latin which is going to be your main task.

    *We are looking for young, energetic folks who are interested to share their culture with us.
    *Please be aware that a cat lives with us, so you shouldn’t have any allergies or anxieties.
