Hey ho! We're a couple from Germany and Thailand living and traveling in different countries since 2010. Our journey together started in Australia where we spent 2 years working in different industries such as hospitality, farming, and healthcare. Then, we moved to China where we stayed the last 6 years working in healthcare and education.
In the beginning of 2019, we decided it's time for a change, to go on a journey, learn new skills and use our existing skills to support communities and different projects on our way.
We are both easy going, and open-minded beings who like to meet new people and share our knowledge and experiences with others while having fun at the same time.

Felix is an adventurous, energetic, enthusiast who likes to have conversations about all aspects of life. He is a hands-on guy with handicraft skills in several areas. He is passionate about gardening, aquaponics and cooking.
We just started our world life journey and planning to explore different countries in the world to find a place where we want to settle down, preferable with like-minded people, in an existing community or as part of a project which will leave something meaningful for future generations.
