  • Description

    Hi, we are Franzi (w, 33 yo) and Michi (m, 32 yo) from southern Germany. We are a married couple who came together already 14 years ago. After we both finished our studying (mechanial engineer and teacher) we worked for a couple of years to pay back our loans. Two years ago we quit our jobs to get kind of a different knowledge about our world. We travelled a lot (hitchhiking long distances, sleeping outside, basically getting to know the world and its people). Right now we are on a bycicle trip, so we definitely need a rain save space for our bikes. We plan to stay in Turkey over winter time and finally want to join some workaway project.

    We love being outside, working with our hands, keep our ecological footprint small but also live our lifes (which is a constant process in rethinking stuff). We like animals, gardening and all kinds of other activities.

    We are both fast learners. Good in working with our hands which we like very much. We like building and fixing stuff (made our own kitchen furniture, also other furniture stuff). Basically we are good in most of DIY things. Just google how to do things and give it a shot. We lile gardening although we lack some practice. We like animals and can work with them I guess. And basically we have zero problems with getting dirty.
