  • Description

    Hi, we´re a couple from the Czech Republic that finished studies not a long time ago and want to travel and get to know the world, people and different cultures before settling down and starting a family.

    We´ve secured working visa to Canada from summer 2016 and then we want to travel the South America. But before going there, we want to get to know better the region we are from - Europe. Thus we bought a car and travel from the Czech Republic to Hungary, Serbia, Romania, Greece, Turkey, Italy and we want to finish this trip in Morocco, Africa.

    On our way, we want to stay for a while on various places so we can get in touch with local communities and understand the people better. This is a main reason we want to do workaway. We also have to make some money for travel expenses - by translating, which is a job we can easily do on the go via internet.

    We don´t hesitate to work and are ready for any type of assignment - although we prefer the creative ones or those that can get us in touch with people. We´re easygoing, open-minded people who like to learn new things and meet new people. For illustration, two years ago we participated in the Czech hitchhiking championship (from Prague, the Czech Republic, to Gibraltar, the UK / south Spain), we designed and built a playground from recycled materials for an elementary school in Trebic, the Czech Republic, we helped with distributing food and clothes to refugees from Syria in Presevo, Serbia. Martina is an architect, experienced also in interior design and skilled in artwork (e.g. painting murals, stencils etc.). Patrik is a lawyer, but has also an experience with construction works (for 5 years we reconstruct, piece by piece, an old farm house in Trebic, the Czech Republic, doing most jobs ourselves - from bricklaying to electrician jobs).

    We´re looking forward to meeting you soon:)

    Best regards
    Patrik and Martina

In 2014, we took a part in the Czech Championship in Hitchhiking. The task was clear - get from Prague to Gibraltar, and back, as soon as possible.
Over Czech Republic, Germany, France and Spain, we literally flew through Europe, having travelled some 6.000 km in 9 days. Not good enough, though, we ended up as 8th of 12 teams.
But we pushed our limits, experienced an amazing journey and met many wonderful people. Thanks to this experience we realized how much we can get by meeting people from all around the world.
In partnership with Telefonica O2, we created a recycled playground for kids from an elementary school in Trebic, Czech Republic.
By melting plastic caps from PET bottles, we created recycled plastic boards.
And voi-lá: a chess-board table! (We also created trashbins for recycling and other playground structures using this technique).
To differentiate among bins for individual recyclable materials, we used so called anamorphic images - from the right perspective they look like 3D.
It's fun, isn't it?
A snapshot from a town-square that Martina designed - this is so called "students' groove" part, intended for relaxation.
Another snapshot from the town-square that Martina designed - these LED lights can get pretty crazy after dusk and you can even play team games with them.
... always ready for any kind of fun!
