  • Description

    Our names are Vyara and Olivier and we are respectively 24 and 25 years of age. We are both university graduates (environmental studies and economics) currently living in Manchester, UK but are originally from Bulgaria and France.
    Fed up with our jobs we have decided to throw ourselves on the road to work and travel across Europe. Along the way we hope to learn new skills, meet new people, discover new cultures and ultimately find what make us truly happy.
    We are a hardworking, dedicated, nature-oriented, mostly optimistic, critically conscious, multilingual, upbeat, funny European couple.
    We cannot wait to meet you all!

    In 2017 we spent six month in Iceland, volunteering in two sheep and dairy farms and a hostel. The winter of 2017 was very exciting and fun for us, we spent a few weeks in lama farm in Germany. January 2018 was dedicated to backpaking in India.In February 2018 we spent two weeks home/dogsitting in south of Portugal. The whole spring of 2018 we spent volunteering in an organic farm in the north of Portugal. Summer 2018 we spent with our families respectively in France and Bulgaria.
    The winter of 2018 we are hoping to spend in Spain.

    We'd like to learn more about building and farming. We'd like to learn manual/life skills to become more self-reliant.
    University didn't lead to what we expected, after years of meaningless and alienating jobs, these upcoming work and life experiences might be the way to emancipation.
