    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Graeme is a Kiwi and Silke is German. Lukas and Jakob speak english and understand German. We have travelled a year in Europe enjoying different cultures and love the kids having exposure to that. We enjoy sharing this great piece of the earth with travellers. Having been an exchange student in my teens I have an understanding what an impact the openness and welcoming can have when you are away from home.
