Nuestro próximo destino:Japan - Desde Ago 2020 Ver todos
We are Susan and Cameron from Australia. Our children are grown and we want to do some of the exploring that we didn't do in our twenties. Our home, the Gold Coast, is famous for its surfing beaches and beautiful rainforests in the nearby mountains. We spend a lot of time in the outdoors enjoying surfing, camping, hiking and cycling in the beautiful natural areas around our home. We are both curious by nature and are always interested in meeting people from different places and learning about their experiences and culture. We have hosted many young people participating in an international exchange through our state education system and have stayed with some of them and their families when traveling.
We both love food, the cooking and eating of it, and are also interested in experiencing and learning about small scale farming and food production as a way of life that is more in harmony with nature, as an alternative to increasing urbanisation and consumption of non-renewable resources.
We came to Japan to learn and have an extended experience of a different culture and language from our own. After teaching English in a city for 6 months, we are wanting to expand our geographic and cultural experience through some of the unique skills and lifestyles that Workaway hosts have to share.
