We are a German couple from the beautiful town Leipzig. After working during summer, we would love to start our first journey with workaway. We want to build more meaningful connections with people all over the world, get to know new cultures and lifestyles. Both of us are really sociable and vivid, spontaneous souls, always open for the next adventure. Open mindedness is really important to us, so we support tolerance and solidarity in our society.
One of our motivations for travelling with workaway is figuring out which path to take in life. Getting out of our comfort zones and making new practical experiences will help us in this journey. We are always willing to help, hard working and keen to give our best work in erything we do. We are curious and open to all opportunities and challenges to learn and grow as much as we can. We could offer lots of different skills. Though we are young, we are persons with lots of interesting and valuable life experiences as well as a great willingness to learn something new and gain new skills.
If you have any questions please get in touch, we'd love to set up a Skype Chat. It would be a pleasure for us to be with you.
