I'm originally from Germany and lived a long time in Seattle Washington where I owned a small restaurant with my 2 sisters in the famous Pike Place market. Now I live 5 months out of the year the beautiful High Desert of Eastern Oregon and run the Painted Hills Vacation Rentals together with my Mom Barb, a passionate gardener. The rest of the year, the winter months when business is slow, I live in Cologne, Germany enjoying a different kind of life . I love to have both worlds available to me.
