    20 years ago I started for Hungary: I bought a small loam house in a small village with 80-100 inhabitants layed in the southern part of Hungary. How that happened is a nice story I will tell later. Never before in my life I got any idea about this country. So: This house must have been been waiting for me over the last years years. This house spent me a lot of good energy and helped me to recover so quickly. While I never spent more than 2-3 weeks I did not realize my day dreams of living there close to nature and close to me.
    All over the years I needed my neighbours to support and keep the 3000qm. They needed money, I needed their power - and they did the work their way, not mine. But times are changing - most of these friends and helpers passed away so I took this chance: Slowly, slowly I want to change the character of the house in its surroundings, give a kind of 'soul'.

    What I am looking for as support given by workawayers?
    Give me a hand with all with all what is to be done like gardening or housekeeping. More important for me is yoir creativity by 'styling' or designing some areas of the greenery - steps, meditation place, plants, stones, sculptures ...

    I have to tell you a bit about me, maybe you get an idea of what I mean ...
    I am working as consultant in Germany and Switzerland and sometimes in India - since a lot of years I am on the road to meet my clients. I liked it. - and found time and all possibilities to relax in this small village in Hungary. Amazing! But never I realized my dreams because ... But it's never too late.

    The house is made of clay in the very typical style of Hungarian villages. My goal had been to take care of style and material - not as easy as I thought, . There is a 2-bed-room, the livingroom, kitchen, bathroom with shower.
    The second building is almost made of wood, the former shelter. There I got a beautiful bedroom - without bathroom under construction that should be finished in 2021.

    I will tell you about the village: Today ca. 100 Hungarian inhabitants, may be 10 houses are owned by Germans like me. No shop, no bar, no restaurant, nothing - all lost since 10 years. Very little people speak another language than Hungarian.
    The people are friendly and open, I myself like to have guests like they do.

    The attraction of this place seams to be low, that's true. You have to like making experiences with simple life in a simple village. If ever you wanted to experience simple life - no tv, no internet in my house - this may be a good place for you like it is for me.

    I would like to take you with me to the next town, show you the way to wellness places with hot springs, or the natural environment. The lake Balaton is not far away. Even the landscape is some kind of simple: Nothing huge, impressive, extraordinary.

    Attractive may be to stay with me and experience coaching sessions, meditation, Ychuan sessions - discussing questions of life and politics, developing ourselves and the environment.
    In my former life I've been teacher for German literature - You are free to take your profit of and I'd like to be your German teacher.

    - This year ended abruptly but with things mostly done. In 2021 after covid 19 problems are easier to handle I am pleased to meet you.

    The main benefit will be natur, village, live like people once did. You may meet Hungarian people, friends and see how they live. Most of them live more 'modern' than I in my small historcal house. I hope we will meet Jazz sessions or other events nearby. This is not our western culture like in Budapest, this is Hungary with forests, vinyards, small houses.
    May be you learn about poverty in Europe too - and the beauty in it.

    I am so happy to learn about workaway meeting people in Spain
    I ask for your help now in 2020.

    Gardening - general works and - hopefully - first steps to construct a Japanese garden with a tiny teahouse ...
    And building means next steps and support for constructing a new bathroom for guests.
    We will plan and discuss every day about what is nice to do and need to do.
    Some work may be harder like woodwork for wintertime, others easier.
    We will look for a good balance between work and life for all of us.

    You will sleep in the mainhouse. The bedroom with 2 wooden beds is beautiful furnitered and comfortable. You will like it - I hope so.
    You will find some books and some elected music on CD.

    We will share the small bathroom, the kitchen and the table for meals.

    I like cooking and will prepare your meals for breakfast, lunch and diner - mostly I prefer vegetarian style, but I will hear what you want or need.
    My cooking style is a mixture of mediterranian and asian - I like it spicy, fresh, sustainable. Vegetables are regional, I buy it on the market nearby. You are welcome at my table!
