  • Descripción

    We are a couple travelling the world by bicycle and helping others with their projects as we go. Having spent our youth working we are now taking our gap years in our fifties. We're looking for volunteer work, where we can use our skills and experience and learn more about local life. We are passionate about the outdoors, renovating old buildings and ecological projects. We have worked in nature conservation, building projects, outdoor education and retail. We love living and working with others and have found this greatly enriches our travelling experience. We are honest, hardworking, diligent, committed and thoughtful people who are happy to have a go at most things. We enjoy passing our skills on to others and learning new stuff ourselves. We love finding out about different cultures and want to improve our language skills.
    We have worked on several building renovation projects, and on small holdings and farms. At home, we grow our own fruit and vegetables, mostly organically, and we enjoy home cooking including baking and making jams and chutneys.
    We are flexible and are able to work both on our own initiative and under instruction. We love cycling, walking, and sailing, as well as reading in our quieter moments.
