    At home


    Fun and active couple, eager to take on the world. Enjoying outdoors, cultural experiences, slow travelling and cuddling with dogs.

  • Description

    /Currently at home in Estonia ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช, working and taking a break from volunteering. Hanna is studying new things and is trying to start a new kind of career. Magnus is a roadworker - installing road signs etc. On our free time Hanna is trying to grow kitchen herbs and we've started to learn Spanish on our own/

    Hey!

    We are HANNA (23) and MAGNUS (27), 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 and a 8 month long trip through a part of Europe (UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal). During our trips we learned a lot about different life aspects, how to get by, how to blend in to a new environment and more importantly, learned about ourselves - what motivates us, how we like to travel and live our life, what to look for in life.

    Our mother tongue is ESTONIAN. We both speak pretty good ENGLISH and understand a little GERMAN. We have also started to learn Spanish on our own. Magnus also has studied little Finnish in UNI and Hanna learned Portuguese for a year long time ago, but we have not been able to practice these languages and they're mostly forgotten.

    We are open to LEARNING 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), Spain (x6) and Portugal (x1).

    Down below is written more about us and our PREVIOUS WORK and workaway EXPERIENCES. Feel free to write and ask more about us and our experiences!

    We are looking forward to meeting you!

    Cheers,
    Magnus and Hanna
