  • Description

    Lucas (31) and I (Suzanne, 24) will be traveling around the Mediterranean sea as soon as the situation makes it possible! As I just got my master degree my literature and Lucas has been working for 10 years as a waiter and then as a cook in his family’s Italian restaurant, we want to take a break and travel in order to meet people and learn about Mediterranean cultures, especially history, agriculture and food! We live in the east of France, in a city called Metz.
    We’re both interested in art and music, Lucas likes to paint and I play some piano and try to do some bookbinding. I'm also trying to do some research on children's literature all around the world. In general, we like to experiment and try to make things ourselves, and would like to know more about handicraft. We both like to travel and can adapt pretty well to different situations. I have several volunteering experiences in farming, hostels, language teaching, cleaning, … and I do feel very good when I can work close to nature!
    We are happy to jump on any opportunity to learn something new and do things enthusiastically. Also, we are not afraid of working hard – in fact, we hope to be as useful as possible!
    We both speak French and English, Lucas speaks Italian and I’m originally from Austria so I know german too.
    I’ve been vegetarian for two years but I am flexible, we are both food lovers as long as the food is good and as ethically produced as possible. We do believe that alimentation is one of the best ways to learn about a region and to connect to nature and people!
    We’d be happy to tell you more about ourselves If you have any question and super happy to meet you through our travels!
