  • Description

    Hi there! Welcome to our workaway profile. We are Yvo and Rianne from Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
    We love travelling and now that we've explored Europe, we are ready for another adventure.
    We are working and travelling in South America at the moment, doing all kinds of projects via WorkAway, and we are very excited about that.

    We've been a couple for ten years now and here's some more info about ourselves:

    Rianne is born and raised in the city of Amsterdam. She's worked as a primary school teacher in The Netherlands. Rianne likes to go to places that aren't so familiar and loves to explore. She's kind, patient, loves art and adores animals. During our workaway project she's developed herself as quite the artist. Together with Yvo's assistance she has been painting murals all over South America. In hostels, academies and more. One fun fact: she loves to cook that much (especially for other people), that she actually wants to open her own restaurant one day in the (maybe near?) future! As of this moment, she is working online as a translator.

    Yvo is born and raised in Delft, a small town that is famous for its typical Dutch blue porcelain and artwork. Yvo is a playwright, theatre maker and journalist by profession. Before that, he used to be a mate on a sailing ship and therefore has some hidden skills. When the sea is nearby you'll start to notice. Yvo loves to immerse himself into other cultures. He likes to get to know the local traditions, food, drinks and learn the language. He enjoys being around people in order to tell great stories and sing songs with eachother. Right now he's working online as well for a culinary magazine. Inspired by Rianne's cooking he writes blogs and articles about food worldwide.

  • What else ...

    If it was up to us, we'd like to learn every single language in the world, but we're afraid that's an impossibility. Still, we are very eager to learn new languages. Also we are always interested in learning new skills. After all, the teacher's philosophy is that a human being should never stop learning. Last but not least, we really love to cook and experience new food, as well as other cultural traditions in the field of art and music.
    Querríamos aprender todos los idiomas del mundo, pero creemos que lo es una imposibilidad. Aún, estamos interesado en aprender idiomas extranjeros. Además, querríamos aprender habilidades nuevas. A fin de cuentas, la filosofía del profesor es un ser humano nunca debe dejar de aprender. Para concludir, nos encanta cocinar y experiencar comida extranjera, además de las tradiciones culturales en el campo del arte y la musica, y mucho más.
