    Description

    We are a German/American family of four (plus a dog princess), living in Charlottesville VA. We are looking to share our home with a workawayer interested in cultural exchanges and community living. We are always on the go working or taking our boys on an adventure. We are looking for someone outgoing and flexible. I am from New York and my husband is from Germany, but we have lived in Virginia for over 10 years. My husband is an avid trail runner and often heads to the mountains on the weekend and is happy to help workawayer's find a good place to hike. I love to cook and meet up with friends. We hope to share our interests with you!

    We live a quiet neighborhood 20 minute walk or 5 minute bike ride from beautiful downtown and a few blocks from a bus stop. We are minutes away from a YMCA, playground and brand new Skate Park.

    We have a private bedroom and semi private bathroom for our workawayer to use while visiting. You will have access to internet, laundry, semiprivate deck, and lots of kids toys :)

    We are looking for help with our garden, help around the house, and help with some house projects. We would love to have a German speaker to practice with our two bilingual children. We have small projects that are great for someone who likes to work independently but also many projects to work on together.

    We are still new to this and are looking for a workcamper that is interested in staying for a few days or up to a week. We can also reevaluate after your initial visit.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We feel it is important to share our lives in America with others. We love meeting new people and sharing cultures with our two boys. Charlottesville is also a wonderful town with lots to do. There is music playing most evenings and a variety of activities happening between the University and the downtown. We are happy to lend our bikes for exploring the area.

    We are looking for help with our garden, help around the house, and help with some house projects. I have a garden that has gone to the weeds while I care for my two young children. It would be wonderful to clear the garden and create a new simple raised bed to share plant growing with my kids.

    In our basement we would like to create an extra room so that we can have more guests. We would love to have a German speaker to practice with our two bilingual children.

    We have a private bedroom and semi private bathroom for our workawayer to use while visiting. We typically have breakfast and dinner together as a family and hope that our volunteer can join us as often as possible. We love to try new foods too so we hope our workawayer can share some of their favorite foods. We generally eat vegetarian but don't mind meat being cooked.

    What else ...

    We have two small children so generally get up early and go to bed early. Our boys still nap during the day so we appreciate respect for these times. When we are not sleeping we like to cook, meet with friends and go on adventures around town. We love walking with our dog. We also love to have our friends over for potluck dinners.
