We are Catherine and Rowan. We have been using workaway for the past couple of years and it has become our favorite way to travel and meet people of the country, we find it extremely rewarding to be able to do something productive while in a new country.
We are planning on visiting Peru and Colombia in January-April, We are really excited to visit these countries! we are especially interested in visiting the Amazonian regions and getting to know the people there. we would love to take our time while in this region and really get involved helping out where help is needed so we are flexible on when and how long we can stay.
Rowan works as a professional landscaper and builder often but has taken time off over the last few years to build a small off grid cabin and develop the land we live on to work towards a more sustainable and lower impact life. I have worked in the creative arts industry as a performer, maker and teacher. At the moment I am working hard towards setting up a democratic school where we live. we are creative people who love nothing better then being in the middle of no where exploring! :)
We both grew up on small farms so are not afraid of hard work! We are living the off grid lifestyle in Ireland and were interested in developing and sharing our knowledge of and learning more about organic farming,sustainable building/living and herbal medicines, although these are of interest to us we are open to any interesting opportunity or learning experience you might have to offer.
We are quite an active couple so we also love any opportunity for outdoor sports!
We are respectful, easy going open minded people with a good sense of humor :).
