Hi I'm Raphaela from Düsseldorf
Since enjoying a 6-month sabbatical in 2014, during which I spent my time with travelling and working on farms or similar, I’m always looking for another interesting (farm) place -near or far - where to spend part of my vacation time.
Grown up in the countryside – not on a farm, but farmers as neighbours, with a lot of dogs, cats, rabbits - I like to work outside in the nature with fresh air, working with animals or in the garden - all-in-all- doing complete other things, than I used to do in my former office-job.
I have been to farms in Austria -helping in the stables, the garden the house – , Switzerland – helping with the hey, the animals, the household and also joined a family in greece for their olive harvesting.
Meanwhile I’m 61 and I quitted my office job in order to have some more years of enjoying work rather then doing it for money only. Now I’m working half-time in the shop of a fruit farm and spend 1 day per week on a biological farm as a volunteer – on the fields, in the stables, helping in the cafe or in the dairy or with meat-vacuuming after butchering.
Although not having own children, I always did care for children - younger sisters, cousins, children of friend and familiy - any age from new born onwards.
Grown-up in a family of seven, it was always understood, that housework had to be done by everybody, so there's nothing I'm not used to.
I'm pragmatic, well organized, I do see things to do, there is nothing I don't get familiar with within a short time and I'm used to work autonomous.
I'm curious to meet people , get known to various ways of living, cultures, landsides, enjoying nature and taking pictures of all this.
