  • Description

    Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile :)
    At the moment it is just me Antje :) I would love to get in touch with people who can teach me about eco-living. Learn about how to build a sustainable house, building techniques (cob-house/earthship/strawbale/etc.), watersystem, powersystem, etc. Please teach me all the skills, in the future I want to have a self-sustainable lifestyle, own some land and build a home. And keep bees (safe the bees!) , so if someone can teach me about beekeeping that would be awsome.

    We are Antje and Martijn two happy people, we have been together since we were 14 years young and got married last September 2017, true love story. We both have a passion for traveling and that is why we decided to save up some money and quit our jobs in The Netherlands (Antje actually loved her Barista job) to see more than the small country we are from. During our travels we hope to learn about new languages, taste food we have never tried before, being part of local traditions, explore nature and experience different cultures. But most of all meet and get to know people from all around the world.
    About our next stop.....we will let us inspire by the beautiful people we meet along our way, let the world be our playground.
    Hope to meet you soon!

  • What skills do you have?

    When Martijn finds something interesting to him he is unstoppable he will achieve his goals, at the moment his big passion is learning Japanese language. March 2017 he started studying by himself but to really get into the language he has learn about the culture as well, the best place to learn Japanese is of course Japan. That is why he will go to Japan April until Oktober 2019 to do a language study.
    He is very easy going and interested in what people have to say, loves to hear about other languages, habits, way of thinking and culture. He is creative (also likes to doodle), is into music he can play; bass-guitar, guitar, a little bit piano and mouth-harp (studied music entrepreneur). Other professional skills; very sociable waiter and kitchen-staff, experienced driver.

    Antje is definitely passionate about coffee and latte-art, she has knowledge but is always interested in learning more. She loves to bake cakes (and shares them) and will prepare any food available, give her a kitchen and she is happy. Also she is very interested in living a more conscious life and loves to get in touch with people who have more knowledge about 'living of grid'; building your own house with local materials, fruit&veg garden, being as self-sufficient as possible and creating your own income/business.
    While traveling she spends quite some time with her Nikon camera capturing the surroundings, animals, plants, city-views and local sightseeing. She is a caring, easygoing person.

    Both of us are trustworthy, hardworking, have a positive attitude and look at life at the bright side.
