    Good Workawayer

  • Our status


  • Description

    We are a couple from Turkey who loves travelling a lot! Actually we were working as a lawyer and a tax consultant back in Istanbul, Turkey but we left our jobs to explore around Asia for 8 months.
    Being from Turkey, which is a mixture of both European and Asian culture, makes us wonder to know more about both cultures. We had chances to travel around Europe in the past. But this is our first time in Southeast Asia and we wake up every day to new adventures.
    Within the last 2 months, we have visited Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines so far. We think that Workaway is the best way to learn more about the local culture and to meet new people. We enjoy new experiences and we are open to help and learn new skills since we are dreaming about having our own glamping one day in the future back in Turkey.
