  • Description

    *****Update from May 2018 onwards: We will be back in Switzerland and will have to get used to the daily routine. Therefore we will not have that much time and will not be so flexible with workaway anymore. Nevertheless we keep our account active. Whenever you think we would exactly be „the right ones“ to support your project, please contact us and we will see what we can do*****

    We are a Swiss couple and used to live and work in Zurich. Since November 2016 we are traveling around the world. After moving from place to place, living in a campervan and on a sailing boat we want to take on a fresh challenge, settle down for some weeks in a new environment, meet interesting people and make ourselves useful wherever help is needed.
