- Oct 5, 2022 - Oct 13, 2022
We are two agile, friendly, and almost always good-humoured female pensioners with great interest in literature, art, film, theatre, opera and ballet, music and photography. We enjoy to keep ourselves in shape and exercise regularly (gymnastics and strength training). One of our great passions is traveling which we try to do as often as possible. Besides English, we speak and understand French and Italian and we take great pleasure in meeting people from other countries and cultures. We love to establish new contacts and meet new conversation partners in the respective countries. Another great passion is our garden. We spent quite a bit of time gardening. (Much of the garden is automatically watered.) Emily, the cat, is regularly visiting us. We take care of her together with our neighbours. At night Emily sleeps outside in the garden. We love to read and couldn’t imagine life without newspapers and books. Last but not least, we like good food, cooking, and eating!

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home
You will find everything you need ‘just around the corner’. There are numerous nice and international restaurants, cafes, and parks to relax which all can be reached on foot or by bicycle. Hamburg has a fantastic public transportation system. It only takes a couple of minutes to get to the Alster and the harbour or the Reeperbahn as well as the New Hafen City (harbour city) with the new Philharmonic Hall (Elbphilharmonie), the opera house, theatres, musical-theatres, museums and the university. It also only takes a short ride to the city centre with its designer boutiques and famous shopping arcades.You can also easily get to the train station and the airport by using public transportation. And just in case: There are two hospitals close by which provide excellent medical treatment, among them the world-famous university hospital (UKE). Hamburg’s geographical location provides a perfect starting point for trips to Berlin (1.5 hrs by train), Denmark or to the North Sea with the beautiful island SYLT.
