    Travelling

  • Description

    Hi, we are a bilingual family from Germany who love travelling, meeting new people and learning things!
    We have a garden and keep animals at a place that we share with friends in the countryside. At our allotment in Berlin we manage to grow enough greens for us all.

    The main share of my working time is spent at the desk so in my free time I enjoy doing physical tasks to balance it out. I have a degree in Applied Linguistics and another one in DaF (Teaching German as a Foreign Language) and experience in teaching German abroad and in beginner courses in Berlin.

    My daughter is a huge animal fan, she is resolute and industrious and she would love to help out with animals. My middle son has carpentry skills and experience in general maintenance works, and would also enjoy learning to work with animals. My eldest son has got his own workaway profile :)

    We spend a lot of our time at an ecological permaculture re-forestation project outside Berlin and are used to communal living, manual tasks and working outside. We have some animals there (donkeys and chickens), and are managing to keep the gardens going on the sandy soil, so getting some more practical experience in this field would be greatly appreciated.

    We are fascinated by the amazing projects and committed people in the wide world out there.

    At the moment we can travel only during school holidays and want to make the most of it - to see and learn as much as possible!

    We travelled around Europe also on bikes and offer accommodation in our garden house on warmshowers
