  • Description

    We, Mike and Karin, are enjoying travelling around Asia, Oceania and Europe until Summer 2019. So far we have done three different Workaways in three different countries. One at an organic farm in Japan in October 2018. There we did farming chores and also helped cleaning the house.
    In November 2018 we did volonteerwork for a hotel/hostel combined boat cruise agent in Laung Prabang in Laos. The main tasks were gardening and maintanace chores, also handing out pamflets for the Sunset Cruise on the Mekong River.
    In January 2019 we have volonterd in the beautiful Derwent Valley, Tasmania, picking elderberries at a fruit and olive farm. We have also done a couple of smaller office and market chores for our hosts.
    When we are not travelling around the world Mike works with IT/technician and Karin works as a principal at a higher vocational education school in Sweden, where programs within areas such as Hospitality Management, Marketing, Webdeveloper, etc are offered.
