We (Renee and Simon) are a couple with a mission to travel the world and volunteer in every country we visit. We believe that working together create beautiful bands between people and give us a deeper understanding of a little community/place where we stay. Therefore we are not picky for the type of job we have to do, only for the kindness of the host. We start our trip in Singapore to help a friend out and from thereon we will go with the flow and follow our heart.
We met each other in 2017 during Tango class (Argentinian dancing style) in the Netherlands, from that moment we fell in love and started to dream together. Our first dream as a couple was to discover more of this beautiful planet. However, we were both out of money since we both came back from travelling. Renee had been cooking, farming and yoga her way through Australia, Indonesia and Sri Lanka, while Simon was dancing, surfing and yoga his way through South-America. So we started to save money and took a job in the Netherlands for one-and-a half year (Renee as yoga teacher and in customer-service, Simon as teacher, social entrepreneur and business consultant). So 2017 and 2018 was the year of saving money for our world trip and more important getting to know each other.
During these years we noticed that we have a lot of things in common. Our biggest passion besides exploring the world is dancing, cooking and laughing our ways through life. Where Simon is more the dancing joker and is all about expanding his heart and wisdom towards others, Renee is the smiling health junk who always takes care of other people. We both love to do yoga, where Renee is an experience yoga teacher, Simon is more of a beginning yoga teacher. Our yogi lifestyle also includes healthy food, proper exercise (dancing, fitness and yoga), proper meditation and enough laughing. We believe strongly in the power of love, positivity and a healthy lifestyle. If you be nice and respectful towards others, you will get it back.
Besides our couple goals and lovely relationship we both have our personal dreams and passions. Simon is a starting teacher in high school, passionate about culture, education and sports. Where Renee's goal is to live and share a healthy lifestyle, passionate about cooking, digestion and movement. Her dream is to open a vegetarian restaurant!
