  • Description


    We are Melanie and Thomas, a French couple who love travelling and meet new people.
    We used to travel a lot during our holidays, but we quit our jobs in France in 2020 as we decided to travel the world starting this year :) Thomas was a quality engineer and Melanie was in charge of Customers communication - both in Industry.

    Melanie lived in England for 9 months and Thomas in South Korea for 4 months. We both travelled a lot in Europe, Canada, a bit of Asia, and we love to discover new culture, people and traditions (and food! :) )

    We wanted to start our adventure abroad in May 2020 but due to Covid 19 we changed our travel plan like.. 5 or 6 times already during the past months :( We have finally decided to start our trip in Europe in September 2020 and we will go wherever the wind takes us. We would love to work/help in the countries we visit as we think this is the best way to live as a local, meet people and learn about the country.

    This will be our first workaway experiences and we hope hosts will give us a chance, we are friendly and hardworkers :)

    Thanks for your support and see you soon :)
