  • Description

    Hello, we are Florian and Tiphaine. In France, I was a free software sales engineer and Tiphaine was a physiotherapist.
    In 2019, we decided to leave our jobs, take a break and start a new adventure: discovering countries and their culture through volunteering.
    We are foodies and eco-friendly too, so this trip is an opportunity to learn a lot and get back to basics : zero-waste, local & homemade.

  • What skills do you have?

    We play a lot of sport (Florian: trail running, mountain bike & Tiphaine: triathlon) and our physical condition is good.
    Obviously, our jobs in France do not make us the best manual workers but we grew up in the countryside and learning is not a problem.
    Tiphaine has worked in summer camp and has a good contact with children. She likes cooking and testing new recipes. Tiphaine would like to improve their skills in eco-project, permaculture and english. She is tranquil and rigorous.
    Me (Florian), i'm good in IT of course but i like cooking too and to be in the outside. I would like improve my skills in English and manual works. I don't mind to work with animals. I'm social (talkative from Tiphaine says) and perfectionist.

    During the first part our trip, we met amazing people and learned a lot from them.
    Now, we are eager to improve these new skills :
    - Sprouting
    - Canning
    - Sourdough baking (Maggie, our leaven, is travelling with us)
    - Cooking
    - Gardening / Permaculture / Forest garden
    - Nutrition
    - Building
