  • Description

    We are Heike and Stefan, a retired couple (electrical engineer and solicitor assistant) in our 50’s living in southwest Germany. We have been married for over 30 years, with two adult children.

    Therefore we have time for our favourite hobby, travelling around the world with a flexible schedule.

    We are both healthy, love the life, reliable, honest, well organized, tidy, non-smokers, quiet, kind and of course pet lovers.

    Our hobbies are hiking, swimming, gardening, playing board games, reading, cooking and visiting local markets, museums and small concerts. Furthermore Heike loves baking bread and Stefan is an enthusiastic craft beer home brewer with his own built stainless steel brewing machine.

    We both are well versed and carefully car drivers with international driving licences.
