  • Description

    Hello and Servus from Austria!
    We are Sophia and Susi - a couple of five years and share love and lives.
    Here's a little something about ourselves:

    Sophia: Hi everybody, I just finished my master's in theater, film and media. I love travelling ever since I lived in Australia for a year right after high school where I worked as a station hand at cattle stations in the outback (fixing fences, walking the mob, branding, feeding and caring for cattle and horses etc.) and as an aupair for 4 and 6 year olds in Sydney. I´m interested in a variety of things - animals, nature, outdoors, DIY, organic farming, sustainable lifestyle, crafting, painting, drawing, yoga, meditation and of course travelling with all thats included: meeting people, seeing new places, trying new foods and things, learning, about other cultures, other lifestyles.
    Live and let live - all beings want to be well and happy.

    Susi: Hi! I'm a political science graduate and love travelling and interacting with people form different cultures and backgrounds. My previous volunteering experiences include participating in a community sevice programme in Costa Rica for six months where I gained some practical pedagogical experience as a teaching assistant at a local elementary school and working as a voluntary medical assistant at Red Cross Austria. I also spent one semester in Paris, France during my master's studies. Since I come from a part-time farming background I have some experience in agriculture and forestry, I can ride a tractor and know how to set up a vegetable patch :) I love riding horses (english & western style) and have no problems with getting my hands dirty!

    We share the love for travelling and animals and look forward to meeting open-minded people and helping at their farm!
