My next destination:Australia View all
Hello. I am Marie from Japan. I traveled around Euro in 2018 and I'm traveling to Australia from the end of January 2019.
I’m a nature and living thing lover. I'm very interested in traditional lifestyle, food, self-sufficiency, permaclture, organic, natural, farming, gardening and cooking.
I have a dream. After traveling, I want to live in the countryside as self sufficiently as possible as well as open an own restaurant where we offer what we create and grow. For that, I’ve come traveling to learn how to cook and garden(farm) in a different part of the world therefore I'm doing work exchanges around the world. Actually I've done wwoofing in the 18 places of NZ in 2017.
