  • Description

    We are Elke and Felix, a German couple that left home over 2.5 years ago. We were lucky enough to travel through beautiful New Zealand and Southeast Asia.
    During our time in NZ we have volunteered at a lot of places and communities through "helpx.net". See our profile here:

    We are new to Workaway and excited about even more opportunaties!

    Since last summer we are in Canada on a working holiday basis. After almost a year of Vancouver city life we are now excited to add a few Workaway experiences here in Canada. After that we will travel to Peru for almost three months and we can‘t wait!

    We would describe us as easy going, friendly, reliable, interested in different cultures and new experiences.
