Hi, My name is David and I'm a travel addict! I grew up in rural Ireland in a family that put a lot of emphasis on travel, creative independent thinking and a respect for nature.
I have lived and worked all over the world, as an Antique store manager in the US, a University Lecturer in Dublin, a bond broker in Geneva, an oyster farmer in Ireland, an English teacher in China...the list goes on!!
Travel and experiencing different cultures around the world has been a constant in my life.
In 2012, I bought and renovated a house in the historic town of Kinsale, coming from a family that are "good with there hands", I had a lot of help, I just wish that someone had told me about workaway and perhaps I could have got the work done faster!! Now the house is listed on airbnb, I am free to travel and perhaps put my skills to use elsewhere.
I enjoy all types of manual labour (I prefer to let the plumbing and electrics to the professionals!) I am however at my happiest working in the garden or greenhouse as I have plenty of experience both helping in my parents extensive gardens and establishing the beautiful gardens that surround my house.
I'm outgoing, chatty and inquisitive with a love of Literature and music.
Hi there, I'm Julie! I've just finished studying my Masters and I'm so excited to have an opportunity to combine my love for travel and meeting new people.
Like David, I have also travelled and worked all over the world, working in various sectors! Cooking and baking in award winning cafes in Ireland, waitressing and hosting in various restaurants and hotels, teaching English as a foreign language to kindergarten students in Shanghai...if I'm not in the classroom or in the kitchen I'm working outdoors with David in beautiful gardens on the Irish coast!
I was born in Lyon, France so I speak French fluently as well as Chinese which I studied in university.
I have a curious mind and an outgoing nature! I love music and coming from an artistic family of painters and writers, I have keen interest in all the arts, in particular Chinese calligraphy!
I've always loved to cook and bake dishes from around the world... rustic French, Italian, Asian and of course traditional Irish which David loves.
