  • Description

    We are a couple from Germany, who wants to take the time between school and university as chance to explore different countries and cultures in the next months.

    For that reason we started our trip in November 2016 in Cuba, heading down trough Central and South America to arrive in southern Chile in May/June 2017.

    We try to do half-time travel and half-time volunteering in projects, to get connected with the culture at one place for a longer time and not just passing trough.

    Having both lived our whole live on the countryside in Germany, we are both pretty familiar with classical farming for milk and meat in the Black Forest of Germany. With that knowledge in mind we really want to learn more about sustainable living, permaculture, hydroponic gardening and every other way of gardening which is different to the way practised in the small villages we come from.
