  • Description


    We are Jan-Pieter, Stefanie and Lou (a sweet 6 years old Australian shepherd dog). We are both calm, easygoing and enthusiastic people who love nature, animals, being outdoors and adventure. We're open to a lot of things and would love to learn new stuff. Lou is a very friendly, social and enthusiastic dog. He will definitely love you and it is almost impossible to not love him back.

    This year we are taking a break to travel around the world. To explore different lifestyles, get to know different cultures, learn new skills, get to know countries from inside out... This to enrich ourselves and to get a better idea of the world and what kind of life we want in the future.
    For example we would love to learn more about permaculture, eco-construction, all kind of woodwork, pottery, photography, learn to build a treehouse...

    We both have a big heart for animals and would also love to work with them. It would be great to learn more about natural horsemanship, improve our horse riding skills, help in a shelter, learn to sled with dogs...

    All three of us are looking forward to this adventure and are hoping to find people that are willing to help us with that.

    Kind regards, Jan-Pieter, Stefanie and Lou
