  • Description

    NEWS : currently looking hard for a place to volunteer at in Costa rica. you are from costa rica ? contact us !

    Here are Laura and Nicolas, we are french, 29 years old and planning to go on the biggest travel of our lives in summer 2019.
    Nicolas works as a master glass-blower, and I am a falconer working in conservation. We love our jobs very much and love to share it with the world. Therefore we decided to travel to do volunteering : art volunteering and conservation volunteering. We will also stop in places to learn new things and do different helpx activities.
    We are both seasonned travellers. I (Laura) did a great world travel 3 years ago, for a year and a half across the globe, did a lot of helpx and loved it.
    I didn't know Nicolas at that time, and he travelled across Cambodia on a motorbike. We met, we liked each other very mych, lived for a year in Paris together, and decided to do a "great big travel" together, before we settle in life and eventually become real adults (if we ever manage to do so).
    We will go to Alaska, and go all the way south to Ushaia in southern america for a year.
    We are an easy going couple, open minded, we love nature, culture, and love to travel slow to discover as much as we can.
    WATCHOUT : STRONGLY ALLERGIC to CATS and HORSES. Midly allergic to DOGS
    ADVERT : We do a lot of filming and VIDEO EDITING. We are willing to trade a week of free stay in hostels/hotels for a nice advert video for your business (1-3 minutes). We have the camera and everything we need to edit the video.

    -an oyster farm in Alaska, cleaning and preparing oysters
    -a floating house in Alaska, to rebuild an old wooden deck
    -a glass-blowing tool maker in Washington state, to do a commercial video for his business
    -a bird of prey center, in Vancouver Island, to care for the birds and repair fences
    -a glass-blowing studio in Calgary, to blow glass and do videos
    -a resort in Costa Rica, doing construction work with concrete
