  • Description

    Hello! We’re Maxine and Tom, a fun loving, open minded couple from a small town called Buckingham in central England.
    We are both University graduates who had a gap year planned travelling through Sri Lanka, India and beyond in 2020. However this has been put on hold because of Coronavirus. Now the world is starting to open up again we are seeking a new adventure through workaway, seeing the countries that fascinate us whilst working and exchanging cultures with local hosts. We are easy going, adaptable and willing to try anything new and take on new challenges with open arms. Now more than ever we are excited to work hard and travel freely. We are both very keen on the outdoors, environment and love to stay active, also love trying new experiences and making memories.
