  • Description

    I'm a 35-year-old translator/teacher who loves to travel the world together with my boyfriend Dorian, who has been my life companion for the past 15 years. We started out backpacking throughout Europe & South-East Asia in our twenties. In 2016 we set out for one of our greatest adventures so far: a year-long road trip through North America in a 20-year-old RV, our very own Ford Jamboree. An experience that we'll cherish for the rest of our lives. We went wwoofing in several states (Florida, Montana, California...) and had many other interesting encounters by means of house/pet sitting, boondocking etc. Gradually, the idea of what to do once we got back home, took shape. Although we had both been city dwellers for most of our previous lives, we no longer felt at ease in the city of Antwerp, after having lived in the American and Canadian vastness for such a long time. Upon our return in Belgium, one of the first things we did was buy a minivan and convert it into a campervan, allowing us to escape the city from time to time. We moved to a campground in the countryside and lived in a trailer for 2 years. Now, we are planning to permanently return to nature and start a more or less self-sufficient way of life with an ecological hospitality business involving many small projects such as small-scale gardening & cooking. Hence, we'd like to gain as many educational and inspiring experiences as possible and find out how others have done before us.
    We've recentely welcomed a small dog in our life, which from now on will be travelling along with us. Her name is Nina (after the awe-inspiring Nina Simone) and she's absolutely adorable (cf. picture)!

  • Quelles sont vos compétences ?

    I'm an English and Dutch language teacher with various experiences: secondary education, adult education (expats, asylum seekers...). I used to be a translator and interpreter in both English and Italian. Recently, I've mainly worked as an all-round administration assistant in educational settings. I have a hands-on mentality and I like to get things done.
    Dorian is a social worker with lots of experience with youths and disabled people. He used to work in a residential organisation for visually impaired people and has recently started teaching them ICT skills in the associated school. He's also finished his degree as a sous-chef (French/Belgian cuisine). Both of us used to work in restaurants while we were studying.
    Through our wwoof and workaway experiences we've both developed some gardening skills (weeding, mulching, planting, shoveling) and we are mostly able to work hard :-) we can also do all sorts of odd jobs around the house: painting, cleaning... We love DIY projects and by converting our minivan and upgrading our trailer Dorian has gained some experience with solar power and other technology.
