  • Description

    Hey there!

    We're Micha and Annett - a german couple - passionate about travelling, meeting people and experiencing different life styles and cultures.

    We met in Australia back in 2008 and ever since used every chance to travel the world. During our trips we stayed at Airbnb`s quite often (shared accomodation) to get in touch with locals. We even became hosts ourselves back home, feel free to check out our Airbnb profile (

    In our leisure time we love hiking, having barbeques, catch up with friends and spending time with our families and little nephews :)

    The last 7 years we lived in South Germany, working 9to5 office jobs (in finance and in tourism) with limited opportunities to travel. That`s why we decided to add a new chapter in our lifes and to focus more on our hobbies and try something new.

    We think with workaway we found the right platform to combine meeting interesting people / families from different backgrounds, explore the surrounding and gain hands-on experiences in various fields, e.g. gardening, building, house sitting etc.

    Our trip will definitely lead us to North America (Canada, USA) because we feel really inspired by the idea of minimalism and the tiny house movement / community. Hopefully we will own a lovely tiny house in the near future ourselves.

    And here we are, ready to leave the beaten path behind and start something new!

    We can`t wait to meet you ;)
