  • Description

    So I quit my job in March 2019 to do what I was dreaming : travelling as a volunteer to discover our wonderful planet and people living in balance with it.
    Already when I was a teen, I was looking for other way of travelling. I did some workcamps and after that I discover wwoofing that was more in my phylosophy of action. All my holidays, I was a wwoofer and it was so great! Now, as I plan a long travel (I open the door in big!), Workaway offers more possibilities.
    I'm looking for simple way of living, connexion with nature, agro-ecology farms and a lot of sharing!
    Few months after travelling, I've met Karel : life can bring so wonderful surprises...! We will now travel some time together. He has a simple lifestyle, as much as he can be connected to nature. He is a carpenter and spoon carver, working by hand (golden ones ;)).
    We are both into the slow way that make a sense to our life.

  • What skills do you have?

    I'm gratuated in agronomy option environment and love to learn about nature in general (training in herbal medicine, formation about biodiversity in a natural reserve in Belgium).
    I take care a lot about my impact on the planet and then I'm very minimalist in my way of living.
    Some years ago, I was doing quite often felted wool (flowers, slippers,..)
    Karel has graduated from tourism management, but soon he learned his way is to do crafts. He speaks english, do the carpentry the old way with handtools, carves woodenware for sell or in his freetime.
