  • Description

    After finishing our university studies (Dama studied medicine (She's a doctor!!) and Fred studied International Studies/ Peace and Conflict research) we grabbed our backpacks and spend two years hitchhiking from Norway to Thailand. We workawayed (is that a word now?) in many places along the way, learned a ton of new skills and met many beautiful people doing it. =] After returning to Europe we hitchhiked a bit more to meet up with old friends and then saved up some money to buy a rotten old campervan. We spent a year completely taking it apart and building everything from scratch, and now we're ready to hit the road again!

    update: Fred now has a full-time job online, so any future workaway work will mostly be done by Dama.
    Also, we have our own accommodation in the form of our campervan. So all we really need is a parking spot, electricity and water hookup, and a toilet somewhere nearby. =]
