  • Description

    Hello there :)

    We are Martin and Maike; and we are enthusiastic, trustworthy, easy going and hard working people! We love meeting new people and animals, sharing experiences, learning about new cultures, learning new skills and, of course, making friends and memories!

    Our passions include (but are not limited to) caring for animals, the natural way of living, adventures, travel, music, volunteering and also love focusing on yoga, meditation, nutrition and exercise to promote holistic wellbeing. We like to be creative, learn from others and trying new things!

    We have helped on all sorts of workaways around the world, such as mushroom farming in Peru, helped setting up a charity in Nepal, on coffee plantation in India, on a campsite in Portugal, plus many more... and we have loved the experience of sharing, making an impact, learning and laughing!

    Our backgrounds...

    Maike is a molecular biologist from Germany, has completed her Masters Degree, speaks Spanish and absolutely LOVES animals!!

    Martin is a qualified teacher, sport scientist and personal trainer from England, has completed a BSc Degree and absolutely LOVES everything to do with nature, travelling and exploring as he has travelled to over 65 countries!

    Martin is also the founder of a UK registered charity called The Zuri Project Uganda that supports the empowerment of locally led development projects in health, sport, nutrition, agriculture, education and social enterprise.

    We met in Chile in September 2016 and travelled South America together for 3 months also doing some workaways along the way. After working back home for the last year in our respective fields, we have now saved up enough to travel again and get involved in more workaways!! :-D

    We would love to meet you and get involved in your projects!

    Thank you,

    Martin & Maike.
