  • Description

    Hello there! We are a fun-loving couple who love to travel and meet people from all over the world. We met a little over 3 years ago in Chiang Mai, Thailand where we were both teaching English at the time. Mikhyle is 28 years old, born and bred from Cape Town, South Africa. His hobbies include playing sport (soccer, surfing, swimming), hiking mountains and enjoying good conversation. He has a degree in Environmental Science with experience in organic urban agriculture as well as small scale farming. Julia is 27 years old Korean American, born and raised in New York. She enjoys deep and intellectual conversations. Julia has a degree in Sociology and has experience volunteering in Ecuador building houses, schools and clean-ups. We are both fascinated by studies of philosophy, sociology, psychology, anthropology, etc. We would like to think of ourselves as very curious, laid back and open-minded. We both enjoy holistic practices and enjoy doing yoga and meditation in our free time. We are nature lovers and want to protect this beautiful earth for as long as we can. We live a simple life. We thought joining Workaway would be the perfect platform for us to experience something new, while also helping others and enjoying good company!

  • More details about your skills

    We have experience cooking and cleaning - basically anything you need around the house. We are also able to help out outside - gardening, plants, etc. We both come from family orientated households so we have lots of experience babysitting and caring for children ages 3-teens. We are proud animal lovers! Feeding them, cleaning up after them, and giving them all the love in the world is no problem. Cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, pigs, etc you name it. We are very willing and enjoy helping out - so if there is any skill we don't have, we would be very eager to learn on the spot.
