  • Description

    We, that is Anja (Spanish Interpreter) and Lars (Brand Consultant), are two Germans who quit their jobs, gave up their apartments and, instead, went on a trip around the world during which we would like to support eco and biodiversity projects.

    The terrible state of our world, the environment and especially the biodiversity makes us insanely concerned. That's why there's this one wish that kept resurfacing in our minds every once in a while: We want to better understand the big picture – and therefore want to dive into the details at different places around the world.

    Since January 2022 we're on the road, visiting the countries we have only dreamed of so far while voluntarily working in purpose-driven jobs without pay. We think that this is the perfect way to combine it all: to meet people from all cultures, to learn and understand, to make authentic experiences and to leave a positive impact.

    We will be in Mexico in October and November 2022.
    We will be coming from South Africa as newly trained and qualified Safari Field and Nature Guides (FGASA), and we want to continue our commitment to conservation as our trip progresses.

    Talking hobbies, we're both very much into any kind of outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, diving etc. and always up for a sponteanous adventure :)
