    Good Workawayer

  • Beschreibung


    We are a friendly, laid-back couple from Australia who love travelling and try not to take life too seriously. We've been 'workawayers' for a couple of years now. We feel very lucky to have experienced the below:

    - Hostel in Kobe, Japan (housekeeping, painting and varnishing floors)

    - Farmhouse in Himeji, Japan (gardening, weeding paths, and helping to build an underground walipini greenhouse.

    - boutique hotel in Taipei (checking in/out international guests and housekeeping)

    - community farm in rural Taiwan (cooking, building a bamboo chicken coop, cleaning, harvesting and clearing)

    - permaculture farm in the Philippines (replanting banana trees, lemongrass and papaya, digging trenches & swales)

    We're incredibly grateful for the amazing workaway hosts who allow us to see the world in a unique way and gain so much experience along the way. Meeting other open-minded people on this site has allowed us to learn and grow a lot and even inspired us to potentially become hosts in the future.

    We've never been career focused and decided to leave Sydney a few years ago in pursuit of a healthier and more fulfilling life path. At the time of leaving Sydney we both had what would be considered 'good jobs' - Ryan was a Primary school teacher and Crystal was a TV producer. At 29 years of age, we're fortunate to have visited over 30 countries and achieved some amazing life experiences such as living and working in Taipei, teaching in Kenya, India and East Timor, trekking to Everest Base Camp in Nepal, volunteering in the Philippines, and helping build a school in Laos.

    We're currently living and working on Lord Howe Island at one of Australia's best lodges (voted 2017 & 2018 number one hotel in Australia on Trip Advisor). Crystal is restaurant supervisor leading a team of people and Ryan is in operations organising daily activities for guests and liaising with local tour operators. We'll be closing for the winter which allows us to travel for 3 months every season. We want to gain as many skills as possible in that time to become more self sufficient for our off-grid future.

    Apart from slow travel, we also love rock climbing, camping, animals, drawing, trying new food, and getting our hands dirty. We're extremely adaptable and always welcome change. We are so excited to develop ourselves through new experiences, hard work and meeting great people. Hope to have the pleasure of meeting you.
