  • Our status


  • Description

    We are an open minded and fun loving couple.
    We love to be in nature as much as possible.
    Hiking, mountainbiking, snowboarding and surfing.
    We are very thankful for our lives and for the place (earth) where we‘re living. We need to respect nature as we are not the last generation who wants to live here.

    I‘m an interior architect. So I would say I’m a quite creative person. I love to work with natural products as much as possible. In my job I sit in office or go on building site but I‘m not using my hands an human power. I would like to do more like this with workaway.
    I also worked as carpenter, renovated my own apartment with lime and clay, we painted everything on our own. So I might help different buulding projects and could share my knowledge.
    I‘m also interested in learning new things: architecture of other countries, culture, gardening, permaculture, languages, foreign meals,…

    I worked in an administration office at a college. I‘m a very organized and structured person. But the importest thing for me is: make experiences with great people. That‘s why I worked a season with my friend in a mountain hut. Renovation our apartment was a great experience and I learned a lot about painting, lime and clay. I‘m also very interested in gardening, permaculture and medicinal herbs.

    We are open for everything :)
