  • Description

    Hi, we are Yvonne (photographer), Kay (writer)
    and Kayleen (happy girl daughter, almost 11 years – extra bed not necessarily needed!).
    We are germans living on the beautiful spanish island of Mallorca (since 2006).

    His writing is very colourful, can be very structured, logical, documenting, reporting, understanding, humorous, philosophic.
    He started videoing after having directed cameraman for industrial films. He has a very good sense for "dramatic arts".
    Video documentation, tutorial videoing.
    His passion is writing, travelling, meeting and talking to people, nature. Well travelled.
    A very good fellow for his daughter.
    60 years young (and ok fit! ;-), non-smoker and not really a vegetarian anymore.
    International driving license.
    He loves nature and laughing very spontaneous humour. Controlled adventure.
    He is friendly, humorous, open minded and respectful. Excellent in communication, a great diplomat.
    Strength:

    Construction work, being outside, hard worker.
    Good listener, well-defined understanding.
    Interests:
    Travelling, people`s life story, sustainable living.

    Kayleen / (kayleenontour.com coming very soon!)
    Happy girl, trilingual (German, Spanish, English) and learning Mandarin for a few years.
    Very flexible, independent, very much "awake", mature and sporty. Loves almost everything.
    Easy to handle. Good energy level.
    12,5 years young. Very tall for her age.
    She loves nature, sports, adventure and laughing, having fun, playing and be with people.
    Going out for meals, also having picnics and "drinks in the bar" :-).
    Friendly, creative, very open-minded and respectful. Thankful.
    A great and happy girl! Vegetarian (and not picky!).
    Strength:
    Languages, talking, playing Football, in general sports, swimming, painting. Also Natural Horsemanship also started with surfing.
    She is very good with younger children (and older ones anyway) and animals.
    And generally also loved by other workawayers because of her great spirit, knowledge and understanding.
    Interests:
    Almost everything ... But especially Natural Horsemanship which she learned in Tuscany, Colorado and Australian Outback during our world trip. She also started to surf.
    To be avoided:
    Boredom.

    Our aim of travelling:
    Get a real deep experience for countries, its people, culture, nature, adventure.
    Different aspects and ideas of life and living.
    Learning for life - also for Kayleen who absorbs everything with great interest.
    And of course, making new friends!
    We seek for either very specific experiences or/and learning specific skills when working away.
    Something for real life, spiritual well-being or very practical things!

    We also do and love house sitting, with and without pets. References are available on trustedhousesitters.com.
    We are self-employed and besides some jobs need to be done for clients in our leisure time, our travels inspire our work (photography/writing). Blogs, books, a.s.o. Working on our laptops is so easy while on our way, but also means that we should have electrical power supply (not necessarily in our room) and a working internet connection.
    While doing housesitting, workawaying and wwoofing, our family always was seen as a happy, enriching, hard working and easy going family - on the host and workawayer side.

    A word to our maturity ;-) and the advantages coming with it: Having had quite a few workawayers in our home ourselves during the past year, we came to appreciate respectful, mature workawayers who have a good perspective of life and an understanding about the seriousness of the workaway concept and responsibility they agreed to.
