We are a well-traveled couple from Austria with six weeks of working experience in a forest garden in Southern France and two weeks of renovation work in Pico, Azores. We care about human connection, music, and our planet.
Professionally I have a Ph.D. in physics and I love to tinker with electrical and mechanical stuff.
My father is from Sicily, so I naturally inherited a pull towards a warm climate.
I love deep conversations, good food, quiet meditations, and a good workout.
My professional background is in journalism and event management, I speak several languages and I am interested in getting to know people from other backgrounds and cultures. I quit my job two years ago to pursue my passion of traveling longterm.
I love writing, working with my hands, helping others, and reading a good book in the sun.
On WWOOF, we gained some plant and gardening knowledge and how to care for animals (e. g. donkeys, a house pig, and dogs). While renovating an eco house, we learned more about woodworking, painting, and upcycling.
We are avid listeners and love to connect with people emotionally through conversations and by singing together.
I have a deep STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) background, but I also love to be in nature and work without a ceiling over my head. At school, I got basic electrical installation training and some knowledge on how to handle power tools.
Before starting to travel I built some furniture for our home myself and helped friends paint their apartments.
On my travels, I started playing the ukulele to accompany our singing.
I have a master's degree in translation and I am a versatile writer as well as a decent photographer. I have professional experience in organizing events and festivals (including fundraising, PR, and social media).
I worked as an English teacher for disadvantaged children in Thailand and taught scientific writing at university.
I am a little bit of a perfectionist and enjoy doing intricate work - but I also love getting out of my comfort zone and getting my hands dirty. I am an avid learner and love to push myself to learn new things.
