  • Descripción

    We retired a little early at the age of 56 from careers in project management and teaching in order to travel around the world, not to see tourist sites but to experience what it's really like to live overseas among small communities and to give back. We have been nomadic for the last three years, working for NGOs in Ethiopia, India and Costa Rica, generally in the areas of creating Income Generating Activities for villagers and animal welfare. When back in Europe to see family, we do lots of house and pet sitting. We adore learning new skills in one part of the world and training others in them in another. We also love all things cultural - history, heritage, music, reading, films, etc.
