  • Descripción

    We are Emmelie and Sijmen, both 30, from the Netherlands. We have been together for 13 years and in 2018 we decided we'd like to take on a new challenge and broaden our horizons by moving to Australia for at least one year. The one year has turned into almost two now and we are on our way to possibly make it three!

    In the Netherlands Sijmen used to work as a programmer for two years after he graduated in Mathematics. Emmelie graduated in 2017 with a master in Global and European Studies. We are both keen on learning, which is why Emmelie started studying (online) part-time to become a Dutch-English translator.
    Apart from work and studying, we both like hiking and being outdoors. We also really enjoy sports and have played volleyball for the past couple of years. On the one hand we like to be active, but on the other hand we can also really enjoy reading a book, playing board games or watching a good movie.

    Our adventures in Australia so far consisted of 3 workaway opportunities in the Blue Mountains and around Coffs Harbour, house and pet sitting in NSW, ACT and Tasmania, road tripping from Cairns to Tasmania and quite a lot of farmwork. We are on Working Holiday Visas (subclass 417) and have done olive picking, mandarin picking and packing, apple picking and blueberry picking and packing to earn a second year visa and now a third year.

    Until April 2021 we have commitments lined up, but afterwards we are definitely open to new experiences and opportunities. From April 2021 our plans are to travel to SA, up to the NT and then onto WA.
