  • Descripción


    I am looking for a Workwawayer from January 2023 onwards.

    I am a nerdy, intellectual, conservative and humble person. In 2018 I had my right leg amputated due to diabetes and neuropathy in my hands, but my spirit is still great.

    Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, moved to Germany in 1992. I was once a construction manager and once also a talented IT technician/advisor, but those professions both lead to "burn-out" ... now retired, in a wheelchair, live carefree and secure on early-pension, making hobbies my life and future. I wish to change the world through my online engagement and inventions to be patented or open-sourced. ... never stopped learning, also like to learn from others...and teach others what I can. I prefer to host guests that have similar interests to mine. I do not go to bars or clubs.... I'm religious, conservative, soft, romantic and self-taught in my many skills. I am a smoker, but the apartment is well ventilated. I sometimes drink, but never get drunk!

    My hobbies and interests; inventing, philosophy, astronomy, astrophysics, space travel, photography, Amazon-book- sales, home-cinema, classical music, ebay-shopping, formula-one racing, community work, plane-spotting, eco-villages, music & art, gardening, traveling, romance, cooking, religion, politics, humor...

    Text me for a link to my website for more details.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    There is a lot in Munich to explore and experience. There are 80 museums in Munich, some cost only €1 on Sundays. ... Learn German or English here at home or in the streets or activities. Munich is a student city with many clubs, groups and societies. Nobody feels alone in Munich, and it is quite safe. I am well-traveled well in Bavaria and also 50+ countries, can share/compare experiences. I have been hosting travelers for 15+ years and I love interacting with people from around the world. See feedback, also from couchsurfers. Text me for a link to my tips on what to see in Munich and Bavaria.

  • Ayuda


    A bit of help needed, not really "work", but assistance, about 2-4 hours/day, only 5 days per week, flexible. You can do day trips or weekend trips out of Munich if you like. Please help where and how you can; light household chores, cleaning, improvements, cooking, shopping, chatting, events and visits to activities or parks. I clean my own mess. Guests should help voluntary with their own initiative and effort in their own time-planning. I do not like giving commands, do not need a maid, need very basic household help and some company. Since I am partially disabled, please be patient with me and ignore me when I am grumpy. Occasionally push me (part of the way) in my wheelchair to the doctor or events that we can enjoy together. Cash rewards are possible for very special activities like helping with major home improvements or help with my small Amazon and Ebay shops or special ventures. I can also host couples to share the work-load. I have great experiences hosting groups, partners and also families. Maximum stay 8 weeks.

  • Alojamiento


    Free accommodation plus basic food, humor, entertainment, life- tips and hacks. My home is like a studio but you have a private guest-room (double-bed) for yourself, with shared bathroom, kitchen, balcony and home-cinema ... and free high-speed WiFi. The basic rules in my home are the "Ten Commandments", but I appreciate order, enthusiasm and some intelligence. Guests will never be bored in my home or in the city yet enjoy a lot of privacy and freedom as they want... Maximum stay 2 months due to landlord rules.
