    We are living in the countryside, a beautiful area in Germany with lots of hills, called the Weserbergland and near the "Ratcatcher" town Hamlin. We have three supermarkets and a few other facilities in the village, but there are no bars or any night life. It is great if you like nature!

    Our house is in the center of this small town, close to the church and is about 350 years old. We are still renovating parts of it, but we do have a fast internet connection (WiFi) which you are welcome to use. We have a nice garden attached where the children can play and we also want to start growing our own vegetables there.

    We are both working a lot from home. Colin is a teacher for historical martial arts, such as sword fighting, Sandra is a founder and leader of Free School and also runs it. Together we are publishing books and DVDs.

    Colin is English and Sandra is German, so we speak both languages at home and our boys do as well. We are very open people and have had quite a few guests and friends from all over the world in our house to stay and we are looking forward to you!

    There is always a variety of things to do, general stuff in the houshold like washing up, cooking, cleaning, as well as light building works like plastering or painting walls, moving things from A to B and also interacting with our two children. There is no deadlines to get things done, we are just always greatful about people to make our lives a bit easier and get some new ideas and view from outside! :-) Basically you will be a part of our family and be part of what we are doing.
