  • Description


    We are an animal-crazy family living close to Berlin. We are a three peoplehousehold living in a big house with a garden. As we are working during the day, we try to find someone who is at home with the animals (2 dogs, a parrot, 4 Turtles and many fishtanks with ornamental fish and shrimp). The workawayers could learn about ornamental fish breeding, caring and everything about animalhusbandry and health.
    We live 40 Min away from Berlin by train. The train station ist 3,5 km away. We could offer bikes for use. We live in an area, were sports like hiking, inline skating, cycling are quite popular. Not far away are many water sites for stand up paddeling, sailing or swimming.
    We have a music room in the basement, equiped with a electric drum set, eguitars, bass and microphone.
    We would appreciate help in the garden and household for around 4 hours a day. We would like to meet different cultures and are delighted to share our house.
    Members of the family: Mirjana (40), Vet Tech, Björn (38), Fish Biologist, Ciaran (19) Student.
    We love animals, most kinds of sport ( especially Am. Football and soccer) and international food.
