Up in the hills right in the heart of germany/europe...
right now its not possible to stay here with us
we'll let you know when you guys can visit us again
first something basic - later more about us...
please read carefully everthing is in here...
hello to the community
travellers are really welcome to our place!!!
when you decide coming to us, already now a diverent adventure can start ;-)
we do it that way ---> we just don't answer any questions or enquiries,
i spend to much time in mailing to helpers in the past, and some helpers never came!!!
from now on, if you are interested to us, just come here, any day any time...
that's that way i traveled for a long time, it always worked out good!!!
meeting and staying with people with hitchhiking
futher down i will explain to you in details how to reach us...
what we found out in the past, we offer you something to do, and you can pic, only sometimes there is a little schedule in case there is someting to finish
in case you wanna work by hours or so than u have to watch it ;-) i will not really, but i guess for both sides it's good to see something finished
our experience in the past with helpers ->
it would be good when you wanna stay for at least 1-2 weeks or maybe longer, short stays are pointless.
also a important thing is, recources & energy saving, its not about the $$$ but when 1 helper needs more warm water and electricity a day then the 4 of us, to us it's a sad thing for mother nature, of course we also use this and that, but to us is pretty clear threre is no 2nd planet to use up. we try to be as environmental consciousness as we know so far, may you can teach us even to be more...
for us its good that we also can learn a lot from each other, we did already so far...
NOW ABOUT US...
here is a young family with two kids & cats who warmly invites you to join and be with us for a while or longer. Since 2010 we are in this little cosy village with about 200 souls it's about 30 klicks away from Erfurt and 10 minutes from that little town Arnstadt which is the oldest 1 in Thuringia.
We wanna put the house back on it's feet with local clay, straw timberframe with old beams, stones collected from the field and whatever comes along and looks natural, we also got a nice garden which wants to be naturally created and is already replanted with permaculture and a little pond. Earlyer we got some bees.
We are not fanatic vegetarians but we buy no meet, we try to eat mostly naturally from our garden like in the early days,
we have a homemade mueslicrimper and a mill to make some flour for backing pizza and things like that...
in the summetime we have smooties with nuts, seeds, fruits and herbs from the garden...
I'm Tobi, i could tell ya lots about building, travelin, micronations, and also some spiritual things, or how your mind works...
U think it's U, the little voice up in your head, no, it's the mind in you ...
like 10 years ago i went for almoast 5 years twice around mother earth to meet some other folks, i went truh the US&Canada for quite a while, on the way home i came truh Tahiti, NZ, China, and on the train across mongolia all the way to Moscow. My 2nd trip i went truh Thailand, Malaysia down to Under where i started up in Brisbane, 365 days later to NZ again, Fiji and up to LA to sk8 up to my friends in Vancouver.
I went also years ago to a micronation - hutt river province - and since a few years we are really in touch/connected with a thing like that in germany... the ''Kingdom of Germany''
Silke studied for psychology and mental healer, she's quit handy with herbs, health, yoga, how to get along better with each other, food (what,how,when to eat, and with what togeter) she also had some seminars about ''the flover of life'' ancient wisdom, cosmic laws , spiritual tings and all that jazz u know...
in the past few years she made lots of experience how to plant your garden randomly,
or how to give homebirth...
we can't offer you no luxury but nice food, a bed a nice environment, internet and more... sorry, no TV(dumped)
(it's your pic where you sleep in the house or on the property, there are a few choices, in the colder times, we can find a warm room over night (me and the kids don't mind to slepp in the cold), but we have to build a 2nd chimney to heat the rest of the house...
HOW TO REACH US
i personally hitchhiked lots --> its always EASY with a good map, these day maybe you guys walk around with GPS
european bus lines go mostly to erfurt, 50 m away is the trainstaition 7 $ and you are here
by train pic www.bahn.de
to ''Plaue (Thüringen)'' in a village
there is a 1-2h walk up a steep hill
with a nice landscape on top of the hill
or the easy way
to ''Arnstadt Süd'' in a town
on the trainstatin...
go down the steps turn right into Gehrener straße(street)
the bus is only 50m away cost around 2€ to reinsfeld
catch the 355 BUS at 6:29am 11:26am 1:41pm 2:59pm 5:01pm
you go out of town and there are 2 villages between
in case you'r later, just try hitchhiking on that busstation
(the road leads up the hill in our derection, look for gehrener straße)
the first village is Dannheim, the 2. is Branchewinda
turn right at the street sign, there its written down Reinsfeld 2km
enjoy driving up the valley!!!
reinsfeld is small so its easy we are just behind the orange busstation
you also can come with carsharing like Carpooling.co.uk or blablacar
but they mostly drop of on the ''german autobahn'' or drop you of in town
