  • Description

    We had our first Workaway experiences in 2016. Now we are converts to this form of travel! We have two adult children, but as yet no grandchildren so we want to continue to make the most of our freedom and so are planning our next European trip in 2021.
    We are both in good health, enjoy a good level of fitness, are both very hard working, sociable people who enjoy travel, walking, bike riding and looking forward to visiting a range of countries, mainly sticking with country/ rural places or small villages, rather than cities or large towns, where we can really get to know the culture and community.
    Mark's hobbies are golf and vegetable gardening. He enjoys watching his footy team live or on the TV as well as Rugby - he was originally from New Zealand.
    Janet's hobbies are reading, gardening - the flowers, not the veggies - singing with her local choir, learning the ukelele, feeding people yummy food and bush walking and spending time at the beach, walking and boogie boarding.
