    Hi! We’re James and Andrea.

    After spending the past two years stuck in Hong Kong, we have packed up our lives and left our beloved dog (temporarily) in trusted hands. We starting to travel in February and are planning to spend as much of this year on the road, learning and growing before finding a new, slower, place to call home and build a more purposeful life.

    About Andrea:

    I’ve always found working with my hands incredibly fulfilling and spent four years completing a fine art degree in the Netherlands. I gained basic woodworking and carpentry skills, learnt to weld, make ceramics and pottery and work with textiles, all of which I still try to incorporate into my life and work.
    I spent a period of time pre-Covid joining Workaway projects, to learn about the shapes and forms that off-grid and sustainable living can take, and how this can be incorporated into aspects of our own lives.
    Last September, I began studying for a master's in nutritional therapy, wanting to gain a better understanding of how our food, and the systems they are grown in, contribute to our physical and mental health, as well as to the planet’s health. I hope to gain more in-person experience with both permaculture and regenerative agricultural practices to better understand the importance and impact of our food systems.

    About James:

    After years working as a journalist and copywriter, I decided to retrain as a psychotherapist in 2018 and am midway through the transformation. I am probably still most comfortable when using my skills with words but love working with my hands and am keen to learn more about sustainable agriculture and lifestyles.
    I have worked on farms before and have always enjoyed gardening and getting my hands dirty. I have basic woodworking skills and am comfortable with most types of manual work.
    I love immersing myself in nature and the outdoors. When not studying, I’m usually to be found hiking, wandering or sometimes sailing or paragliding.

    We’re both enormous foodies and love to cook, following as close to a sustainable and vegan diet as possible, and enjoy cooking for others and sharing how exciting, expansive and delicious plant-based food can be.
    We’re both very comfortable travellers and love meeting new people and learning from life experiences. We’re very happy doing manual work and sharing whatever knowledge we can offer and hope we can contribute to your projects and learn along the way.
    We’re currently travelling as a duo but hope that James’ 11-year-old daughter, Amber, can join some of our Workaway adventures over the summer!
