We are a family of 8 - grandparents (Torsten/61 und Manu/60), parents (Hinnak/35 und Luise/32) and the children (Klara/8, Erna/6, Oskar/4, Lore/1 month), living together in a big house with a garden. We have two cats.
We live in a small town near Hamburg, not far away from the river Elbe and from the North Sea, surrounded by fields and small forests. We are working as teacher, doctor, publisher and master student.
In the past few years, we liked to travel the world - but at this time we don't have time to do it- so we want the world to be our guest.
We like to live together, we like to eat together, we like to laugh together, we like to work together... and we are looking for someone to share this life for a while with us.

We take you into our family and share our family life with you. So you can experience typical lifestyle in a german family. We like good conversations with our guests and share as many meals as possible. You can practice German language with us and the rest of the extended family.
Since one of us works in a school and our children go to a self-managed kindergarten, you can get an insight into these institutions if you want.
