  • Description


    Together with our toddler, we live in a town right outside of Hamburg. we love animals, dogs in particular. At the moment we are not sharing our a home with one, but that is about to change soon. We are in our early 40s, we are open minded, interested in all kinds of different backgrounds.

    We handle our health and that of others and especially vulnerable groups very responsibly. It is understood that we stick to the rules that the pandemic has brought and take everything around it very seriously. However, we consider your vaccine status private, and won’t ask about it.

    Christine is a teacher for animal communication, currently writing a book and working on a podcast. Benjamin is a lawyer and a notary with his own practice in town.

    We believe that we are kind of fun to be around. Christine‘s access to nature and animals may be something that is new and valuable to some people. Benjamin is a huge sports enthusiast and would be fun to have a beer and/or a game of ping pong with. Our son is amazing and a lot of fun to connect with, he is sensitive, smart, and really interested in everything around him.

    Basically, we would like you to be someone really fun to hang out with for our little son. We would like him to be around someone who is willing to meet him as an equal. Who is thrilled about spending time with him and seeing the world through his eyes. At the same time, it would be wonderful if you could show him things. Particularly nature and crafts and creative stuff. We ask that you are open to concepts like Nonviolent Communication (Rosenberg) and the idea of plants and animals as sentient beings. It’s not that every minute of our day revolves around those things, but they are a huge part of how we see it understand the world. We would also like some help with the every day household chores such as cleaning and tidying up occasionally. We know that especially the workway community is full of lovely and amazing men. But we would feel most comfortable with a female or diverse guest to look after our son and spend the day with Christine.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have a small weekend home that we visit at least three weekends a month. If you stay with us, you would have the house to yourself during those weekends. We have lovely, friendly and very close neighbors in case you need any help, but you would have to be comfortable to be by yourself every now and then.
