We are a married couple from Hamburg Germany, travelling Europe mostly by foot since June 2015 and working on organic farms, in private households and for social projects . We wandered through parts of Germany, Switzerland and around France. We just arrived in the UK short time ago...
Ilja is an experienced joiner and a painting artist. Nora loves to work in the nature, clearing gardens, pruning trees ect.
We speak German, (almost) fluent english and a good basic french ( nous apprenons rapidement...)
Our current location ( April 2019 ) is near Plymouth in the UK ... our general direction for the next months is heading towards Totnes in Devon...

During our journey we gathered a lot of experiences on different organic farms. We helped planting and harvesting many kinds of vegetables. We help on the fields or in the garden.
Nora has a very good hand for pruning trees and clearing the garden.
We love constructing verandas and parquet flooring, repairing windows, doors, building wooden shutters. We sand and paint tables, chairs, windows, doors and floors... As an experienced joiner, Ilja can construct or repair almost all kinds of things made of wood.
All general house keeping work is fine. We also did housesitting a couple of times.
As artists we draw and paint. Landscapes, animals, figures, portraits and caricatures. Our styles range from classic painterly to modern graffitineous artworks, fantasy, graffiti, cartoons and objects. We work on paper, canvas and more, especially we love to create big wallpaintings/murals in different techniques.
With our graphics tablet we also create ready-to-print ( and to use on websites ) logos for small businesses during our voyage.
