Hi fellow travelers, we are Konni from Germany and Marlon from Colombia. We met 5 years ago on the Caribbean coast of Colombia and started traveling together through South America. In 2018 we went to India and Vietnam to learn about the food.
During all those years we kept coming back to Puerto Escondido a small town on the coast of Oaxaca and finally made the decision to settle down here. In 2019 we opened our small restaurant, to bring Asien cuisine to the coast of Oaxaca. We have tons of things to do at the moment because we are moving the restaurant to our house.
In our free time Marlon likes to practice box (you are more than welcome to join him), also he likes to play the drums. Konni likes to paint, especially colorful Mandalas. We love food so there will be a lot of good stuff for you to try.
We have been volunteering ourselves in a lot of different places and met incredible people and want to give this opportunity to someone else.
DIY and building projects

Help around the house
We are happy to share our kitchen knowledge with you. Also we can help you with practicing Spanish, English and German. You can try boxing or start an art project.
Since we want to move asap we need help with the remodeling of our house. This means we are looking for people with general handyman skills who can work independent. One of our most urgent projects is to finish a water fountain. General help around the house would also be very welcome. We try to have a family meal together ones a day but if we are too busy we might ask you to cook it.
Our volunteer(s) will have their own floor available: One big private room, equipped with a king size bed, a ceiling fan and some furnitures. There is also a private bathroom. On the floor, there is a huge terrace to practice yoga or other activities.
Our kitchen is very spacious and well equipped with everything you need. We have a bicycle that you can use.
On your days off you can enjoy the beaches that are located in the regional area such as Chacahua, Mazunte and Zipolite. Busses are cheap and can get you almost anywhere you want to go.
We are also close to the mountains of San Jose del Pacífico.
