  • Description

    We are travelling in the Balkans for several months, with our campervan. We left France in the end of October 2020, then we spent most of November in Dubrava (Croatia), helping our host in their garden (following permaculture principles). After that, we discovered Montenegro and helped in 2 places : first in a farm with lots of animals (milking cows, feeding animals...) and then gardenning and helping for house maintenance (making some plaster, reparing a roof, painting, cleaning, etc.).
    In the beginning of 2021, we traveled and visited Albania, Macedonia, and Bulgaria. We are now (in March) in a another workaway, helping on a house renovation.
    And we want to keep discovering new areas during a few more monthes, visiting countries and also helping in other places.

    Our goal is to discover local ways of living and different cultures. We think that workaway is a great way to meet people, share our mutual experiences to learn from each other. We feel that we learn much more sharing every day life with a family than just visiting as a tourist. And we like helping with differents projects, doing our best to be useful for our hosts!

    On our free time, we like being outside, hiking and exploring new places ! During holidays, we usually go trekking in the mountains. There is always a great place to walk around in the nature :)
    Ready to help, we're looking forward to our next step and meet our next hosts !

    We have food knowledge and project management skills. Also we both speak French and English, and Carole speaks Spanish.
    We have grown up in the countryside. Sylvain is a farmer's son so he's used to help on the farm (cows, cereals, gardening, vineyard) and he is a handyman : he is travelling with his drill and a few tools in the van ;)
