    Hello, thank you for coming by and reading about us! We are a family of four, living in an old small house which is beeing renovated step by step.... in the outskirts of Linz. I am 34, Ismail is 38, Johann Can is 8 and Valerie is 3

    I m a stay at home mum, our big boy is a selfdirected learner (as adults are anyway, but i don’t expact anything else from him), the little one home anyways. My partner is working as a special needs teacher (we don’t always share the same opinion when it comes to parenting ;-).

    As boy and girl are growing up, i m happy to get the feeling back how important it is, not only to be there for them, but also to show them who mummy is (excapt from the role of a care-and love-giver). i m also kind of worried that the big one s really caught by consuming media, and i think he really didn’t see much of me living my creative potential, so i really want to modell that. i was looking at possibilities to work away myself with the kids and the amazing hosts i found, really reminded me of my own dreams and that i could just start them. that are some of the reasons i reactivated this profile! if you want to help me with this, i ll be more than happy and greatful!

    next steps are starting an organic herb and veggie garden, with lavender, bibernell roses and wild flowers.

    here a bit more about our life:

    we sleep long and go to bed late most of the time. it‘s exausting sometimes to have the kids around all evening, but for me it would feel wrong to decide about one of the main rhytms of their bodies (natural individual sleeping times).

    When Ismail is home we like to sit together by the table and have some nice food, have coffee and cake in the afternoons, and talk........we enjoy making bonefires when it’s dark and grill some potatoes in it...we are appreciating little sensations....

    I‘ m interested in neuro science and how people learn in their natural way without being fed with information or being taught skills they are not asking for. If there are behaviours of the kids that i struggle with, I really try to find out what I could change and I try not to make them change their behaviour. So they are my teachers on the path of trying to be a dedicated and loving human being.

    We enjoy to go with the flow of the days, just wake up and see what the day is bringing us. We just do things around the house, like going for little walks, walking to the lake „Pleschingersee“, visiting neighbor kids, being in the forest, that‘s right in front of our house..... Johann Can is a little fisherman, so they go fishing very often in the warmer times. Some days we go to the city meeting friends at the playground, going for coffee /cake, walking by the beautiful river Danube. Sometimes we go to kids ceatre, cinema, dance performances, ..... or we visit grandmas 40 km away or friends. Once a week we go to a farm joining valerie getting to know everything about horses, she‘s a pferdemädchen. To our tours you are always welcome to join. We regularly have other families over for visits.

    All in all, I try to choose things that we can do together and where the kids can join on a kidbased niveau.

    i must be honest, i didn’t have a lot of order routine these years, and now i found the need and fire to start sorting my life ( in-and outside)

    last year we had an excavator coming and create some flat plateaus to make caring for the garden areas easier.

    now this spring i m starting a herb-and veggie garden from the soil. it should be sourrounded by lavender and other beautyful flowers.

    The house is in constant progress, some rooms are really lovely and others are raw, or just useable. And there are chaos rooms, like the garage. There are a lot if crafting and mending tools, just stuffed into one room,😩and it‘s sometimes really frustrating when we are in the middle of a project and can‘t find a thing. Under the roof there is a treassure of craft materials that I ve been collecting for a long time, but had to pause for the reality that I don’t have time for them, like fabrics and a lot of sewing supplies. There’s also a sawing machine in the house and a guitar and little ringy and clingy instruments ..... (i was a primary school teacher before becoming a mum.....)

    I m visioning to make this a little place where people and families can gather, feel good, share their thoughts and dreams, and send good energy out into this world.... for the summertime I m hoping to get a huge tippi for hosting some more ppl....

    What I can offer you is big interest in natural and respectful child upbringing, and authentic parenting, and if you plan to have kids yourself, you can get an idea about how it is to juggle kids and household, or how to not 😂 ( honestly, it may sound silly, but when I was young, I neeever imagined being a parent being such an intense job)...I can speak German with you if you want, I have learned a lot about nutrition and health in my life, the garden offers a wide range of herbs and fruits that I can teach you working with if you’re interested, like making tea-mixes, drying fruits, making jam, baking the one or other cake/tarte, you can surely benefit from meeting our friends and extendet family, we can show you around the beautiful city of linz.

    I’m trying to understand my emotions, thoughts, their connection to my own upgrowing, the relation between the surrounding of ppl and their behaviour, so if you are interested in psychology and it‘s connection with body and health, I m sure we can have interesting conversations🦋

    Ismail is a crafter and by helping him with projects, you can see how to use tools and how to do some small renovation tasks in and around the house.

    We like to share some typical Austrian and Turkish dishes with you!

    The area where we life is surrounded by wild nature, there‘s a lake that can be reached on foot where you can walk around and swim in, there are mountainbike tracks, cycle-ways, a bmx parcour, and the cultural diversity and a little art scene in the city of Linz. Linz is big for music. Close to our home there is the johannes kepler university, and the biologiezentrum, a center for biology.

    We are happy to introduce you to our friend and invite you to come to family day trips.

    Public transport is good here, so it‘s possible to go to vienna, or to various beautiful natural ressourts of Austria, where you can hike, or ski and do a lot of outdoor-sports.

    Really, here with us, any skill and interest is welcome, as the needed help is in very different areas.

    In the household, i d ask you to help us keep the space clean. i m a creative mess myself, and am trying to remember that keeping some cleanig routines help me keep sane 🤪. like loading the dishwasher, cleaning the kitchen counters after cooking, hoovering and washing floors quickly when needed. doing laundry…. just every day routines….

    my main heart project (as soon as the soil allows it) is starting the new garden💖.

    I m happy if you are sometimes willing to just be there for our big boy, run with johann-can, play jumping games on the beds, fishing games in the house, make treasure hunts, he really loves that at the moment, he also loves to play by the little water besides the house, and if you are willing to pretend being a monster that gets tied up, he will be happy to follow you through the whole garden and tie you to a tree 😅.....he also likes card- and boardgames and lego, schleich farm-games and plastic tractors.

    I may ask you to be with little one while I m supporting Johann-Can with his projects, or be with him while I nurse Valerie or bring her to bed, be with them while I load the washing machine....join big boy on his way to his neighbor friend or pick him up. It would be great to have someone here when I m losing it, being impatient, telling the kids that it’s not about them, that mumy is just having a taugh moment..... i d appreciate if you try to don’t take side with me - as the adult I really expect myself to at least apologize when I forget to be a loving guide rather than a blaming mother. please always try to help me see the kids side if you like that!

    if you get along with taking care of both, we d be happy to ask you to give me and my boyfriend a break by taking playtime with the kids on a saturday morning or staying with them some evening so that we can watch a movie.

    It would be miraculous if you had some love for arranging things, as toys rarely stay in the playroom and need to be brought upstairs regularly.

    You will not be left alone with the kids, me or Ismail will be with you, excapt we agree on some time where you join the big kid to meet a neighbor friend ....

    With the renovation, there are many little tasks to do, mainly things to be repaired, brought in order, renewed or made more beautiful. Ismail is always happy to have some help with the construction he‘s doing, to help him move some furnitures or paint some cupboards...... The house is always in progress, any idea or actual updoing is welcome! So if you are crafty in a way that goes with the soul of our house , you’re welcome to put your hands on it! We have a lot of crafting devices, that are waiting to be used again.

    There are a lot of plain walls and doors that are waiting to get alive, there’s wood that was painted in the old days and will be happy to be freed by sanding, and given some new life. We have many rolls of wallpaper that could be attached to walls, but yes, all that is a question of love and organisation ❤️.

    In the basement there’s one room that could be transformed into a second more private guest room if someone is so skilled and wants to help us with that.....

    The railings of the terasses need sanding and new paint, the wooden indoor stairs need sanding in some tricky corners and maybe some color.

    The walls in the whole house have playspots from the kids projects and could be painted freshly.....

    In the berry seasons there will be lots of berries to be picked and we are happy if you support us picking and processing.

  • Alojamiento


    In the house there is a guest room,it’s on the same floor as our bedroom (we are actually planning to change the guestroom to downstairs) with a great nature few, there is a (small but lovely) shared bathroom with a shower for you downstairs in the house. To the sleeping situation you should know that the kids mainly go to bed late..... but when we are upstairs in the evening you can have some privacy in the kitchen and livingroom area and in the summer outdoors anyways. (so far, I felt workawayers just locked the room and had their privacy even when we were upstairs )

    I like to share meals and eat as a family as often as possible, if you like that too, we are happy if you join! therefore we are grateful if you see it as natural to share kitchen tasks like preparing food, setting the table and clearing the table and kitchen after eating.

    Please use the kitchen freely whenever you want to prepare food for yourself and put things back in place after using them, like milk, spices, bread..... (We are happy if you cook some more to share your meal with us, we will of course do the same when we cook or prepair snacks. )

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    please note: I m quite new here, and learning a lot about communication with every workawayer. please be patient with me, I m not perfect but I m really eager to learn about having a clear mind and voice.....

    You can use our bikes, and public transport is reachable in a few minutes.

    please use your phone and computer in your room.

    If you do cigarettes, coca cola or its sisters, red bull or junk bars don’t consume it when the kids are there. don’t give them sweets.

    Please talk to the kids as respectful as you would do with an adult.

    Please leave commonly used spaces like kitchen and bathrooms in a good condition (at least not worse than you found them ☺️)

    Do please consider that I really look for people who enjoy helping AND holiday here! I wish you to feel free AND responsible while living here and sharing some lifetime together.
