  • Description

    A little bit about ourselves:
    Elke: After living for 13 Years in USA I'm fluently in English and love to practice the language and teach other people. I've taught Zumba in Germany and the states. In Germany I've worked in an organic food store which I enjoyed a lot. Back in the States I have decorated many houses and worked in different retail stores.
    I'm good with animals and I love training dogs.
    I can work hard and I'm sure no task is too big for me.
    Martin: I am an musician and traveled a lot of countries. I love to cook. Walking the way of St James from Austria to Santiago de Compostela for 4 month in 2007 was a great experience.
    Together we are a good team!
    We love to explore new countries and meet new people.
    Like to get involved in your family life with all it's duties.
    Even though our own kids are adults now we still like to play with yours.
    We are flexible in our schedule because we don't have a residence of our own by choice.
    We are outgoing and open minded.
    We love animals and love the nature.
    We work well together but also as individuals.
    We work independently and see the work.
    We could continue with what we can do but the best is you just give us a chance to show you what we are capable to. And in case we can't do it, we definitely want to learn.
    Our own car makes us flexible. It’s a bit bigger so we have to make sure we have space to park our campervan.
    Recently we signed up for house and pet sitting which we also enjoyed. We took care of airbnb guest while the owner have been away. Walked their dogs and fed the cats and chickens. Of course not missing out on cuddle time.
    Our philosophy of life is: Don't worry, be happy

  • What else ...

    We love life and all the things it has to offer. So far we have so many great experiences with workaway and house sitting that I could write a book about all the people we've met.
    For now we don't want to go back to a basic 9-5 life. Workaway is so much more rewarding.
