  • Description

    Happy independent couple who met in Australia 2018 while traveling.
    My boyfriend (Jerome) is Australian and I (Marika) am from Finland. We lived one year together in Finland and now decided to come and see what Netherlands has to offer for us. Currently we are already in Netherlands doing farm work near Groningen.

    With our travelling background and experience we would love to see more of Europe and explore all the beatiful places. We adore all kinds of animals and love the nature. We consider ourselves an outgoing, friendly people who love new experiences.

    While in Australia I (Marika) did two months of farm work in Northern territory, which included animal care, house cleaning, cooking, fencing, painting and gardening. Jerome is very handy and great with computers/internet and can also do lot of physical work. Both of us have lot of experience from hospitality work and customer service. We're open to any possibilities and love learning new things.

    As our freetime we like to take nice walks in the nature, explore the surroundings and go for a bike ride. Also enjoy having a good chat and few redwine glasses every now and then. We love to try different dishes and try to eat healthy! but also cant say no to a good dessert :D

    We're hoping to learn about different cultures, get to know new people and see the world! But first of all we're excited to try new things and learn, so pretty open for any kind of jobs :)
