  • Description

    Hi! We are Krystelle and Huub. We are a Filipino-Dutch couple who were solo travellers before. Our paths crossed in the Philippines and eventually, fate led us to take this journey together. We started our nomadic lifestyle in February 2018. We have volunteered in Iceland, Switzerland, Italy, Wales, Scotland, Japan, and South Korea. We can say our hosts have been happy with our work. Please refer to the feedback section. :)

    At first, Workaway was just a way to stretch our travel budget and get free accommodation, but when we started doing it, we enjoyed the experience more than the freebies we get. We took a Workaway break for ten months and worked on getting income to flow in while we are travelling. Krystelle is an accountant and a financial analyst. She used to be a corporate slave but is now enjoying her freedom doing freelance finance jobs online. Huub graduated as a journalist. He currently works as a freelance travel writer, writing both in Dutch and English. Online work is doing well for us, but we sincerely miss the cultural exchange through Workaway, so we decided to do it again - starting May 2019 in Japan.

  • What skills do you have?

    We have broad interests outside our profession. We have experience working in farms, gardens, dog breeding business, and hostels through Workaway. We both love photography and writing. We are also learning the ropes of creating our own website and growing our social media platforms. We love to learn, and we are always keen on providing the best help that we can give. :)

    Iceland - cow farm
    Switzerland - family farm (feeding various animals, housekeeping, taking care of kids)
