We are a young couple hoping to travel around Europe whilst experiencing a wide range of volunteering activities during our travels.
We have both completed our tertiary studies (Ben studied International Business and Tourism Marketing and Liv studied Creative Industries, Entertainment and Marketing with Tourism) and are looking forward to seeing more of the world.
We both have a love for travel, animals and the environment. We enjoy hiking, spending time in natural areas and learning about different cultures.
We like to consider ourselves worldly given our diverse experiences. Ben is Australian/Scottish and grew up in the South of France and Liv was born in Zimbabwe, before moving to the UK and then raised in Australia by a Zimbabwean father and English mother.
In 2017/18 we spent 3 months visiting India and have now been travelling Europe since December 2018.
We are open to all projects and hope we can make a difference.
Ben has worked in retail and hotels and Liv has worked in a variety of hospitality jobs.
Liv has done wwoofing previously in Portugal as well as some other volunteer projects in teaching and animal care around Africa.
We have now done four workaway projects together, three weeks in France on an organic farm, 2.5 weeks in Montenegro helping to set up an eco-camp, a week in Slovenia setting up gardens and animal shelters and a week in Latvia on a garden renovation project. They have all been brilliant!
Liv’s parents encouraged us to join the workaway community, as they are currently building their own rammed earth house using natural building techniques and developing their permaculture garden in Queensland, Australia. On long weekends, we would go out to help them and we got to meet some fantastic people from around the world which encouraged us to do the same thing in Europe.
We are both very easy going!
Next we are hoping to find projects in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia in July/August.
