  • Description

    /Searching for hosts in southern part of Spain from January 2020 and in Portugal from March-April 2020 onward/

    Hey!

    We are HANNA (22) and MAGNUS (26), two fun young adults from ESTONIA. After working and studying for most of our lives, we would like to DISCOVER new places and MEET new and interesting people from all over the world. We are INDEPENDENT couple who love TRAVELLING and ANIMALS, especially DOGS.

    We would really like to experience the true spirit of different countries, national cuisines, everyday lives and customs. Getting this kind of experience would make our lives and travelling more enjoyable. With the help of WORKAWAY COMMUNITY we've done a 9 month long trip through a part of Europe. During our first trip we learned a lot about different life aspects, how to get by, how to blend in, how to start your life in a new environment and more importantly, learned about ourselves. Right now we're on our second trip through Europe, hopefully again for at least 9 months.

    Our mother tongue is ESTONIAN. We both speak pretty good ENGLISH and understand a little GERMAN. Magnus also has studied little Finnish and Hanna learned Portuguese for a year, but we have not been able to practice these languages. LEARNING and practising any new language is always interesting!

    We are open to LEARN many new WORKING SKILLS and getting LANGUAGE PRACTISE through meeting locals.

    Preferably we would like to STAY in one place from 2 weeks up to 1 month.

    We are HARD-WORKING, TIDY, RESPONSIBLE and our timetable is FLEXIBLE.

    We have had previous WORKAWAY EXPERIENCES in England (x3), Northern Ireland (x1), Scotland (x1), France (x5) and Spain (x3).

    RIGHT NOW we are helping out our current hosts in Catalonia, Spain with general household chores, cleaning, cooking and building, sorting spaces, concrete work, sanding & painting, restoring furniture, making firewood.

    Down below is written more about us and our previous work and workaway experiences. Feel free to write and ask more about us!

    We are looking forward to meeting you!

    Love,
    Magnus and Hanna
