  • Description

    Hi there!

    We are a positive-minded married couple from The Netherlands. In 2018/2019 we travelled around the world and had three amazing WorkAway experiences. We made lots of wonderful memories and new friends and we’ve learned a lot about ourselves, the world and different cultures. In August 2019 we went back to our ‘normal lives’ in The Netherlands and in December 2020 our daughter Hannah was born.

    After our travels around the world and especially after Hannah was born we realized the life we build-up doesn’t ‘fit’ us anymore. We would like to live ‘tiny’ and with low costs so we have more time and space for the things that are most important to us; spending time together as a family, meeting new people, doing and learning new things and spending more time outdoors.

    To make this happen we sold our house, sold and gave away most of our stuff and bought a new tiny home on wheels; a camper. Sinds the 1st of June we finished our jobs and are travelling through Europe in our renovated camper. In summer we will travel through Northern Europe and in September we will go to Portugal and Spain for the winter.

    Marielle’s background is in Social Work and Education: she teaches math and social skills to young people and adults in age 16 to 60 years. Marielle also has a small business, she teaches different kinds of creative classes, like weaving and slow stitching. She is currently learning for creative therapy/coaching (online). Tim has a background in Business Administration: he worked in different commercial companies.

    We are not afraid to get our hands dirty and are always looking for new challenges, experiences and developing our skills.

    Thank you for visiting our WorkAway profile and we are looking forward to meeting you!

    Tim, Marielle ans Hannah
