  • Profile description
  • Hi potential future host and friend :)

    We are Ruth, Nil and Malaja, an international couple with an elderly cat looking to migrate to Ireland in February 2023. In order to ease into the culture and system, we are looking to start living with local people.

    Ruth is a former biologist and up to the time of migration social worker in a therapeutic residential youth home in Germany.

    Nil is a former software engineer now working as a technical manager for a non-profit organization.

    We are both ambitious but easy-going folks, passionate about our work and side projects, and always learning new things. Ruth is sociable and curious about different people and lifestyles. Malaja is attached most to Ruth, used to being mainly indoors, and needs a bit of time to warm up to strangers. Nil is rather introverted and very modest/uncomplicated.
    We don’t smoke and while the diet of Ruth and Nil is vegan, the diet of Malaja is not.

    Please contact us for any further questions or a video call. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

    With kind regards,
    Ruth & Nil
