  • Description

    Hello nice to meet you!

    (NOTE: though this is a couple account, I (Jelle) will travel alone to Mexico winter 2021 as Anne does not have the time to go with me).

    We are Jelle and Anne; an adventurous couple from the Netherlands, and yet two completely different individuals.
    We met in 2013 during salsa class and -despite our differences- soon realised that we share the dream of living a life of adventure, freedom and simplicity. That's why in 2017 we bought an old sailing boat to live on. After years of boat improvement, sailing practice and saving up some money, we left the Netherlands and embraced the life of a sea-nomad. To get an impression, visit (English content will follow shortly).

    A bit more about us:
    Jelle lived in Belize (Central America) for 5 years, where he built his own home in the jungle. He learned a lot about plumbing, electricity, building, ect. After he returned to the Netherlands, he pursued a career in the restaurant and tourism business for a while. However, he found that he was much happier living a life that doesn't center around consumption, wealth and luxury. He has a strong physique, a quick mind and is very good at problem-solving.
    Jelle has a lot of experience with dogs and loves animals and nature in general.

    Anne grew up on a small farm, where she had chickens, cows and sheep and many other animals as pets. As a result, she knows how to handle animals and is an experienced gardener. As a student, she spent all her summers as a solo traveller in Eastern Europe. She also loves mountaineering, rock climbing, cycling and sailing. Apart from exploring in nature, Anne also loves to explore new ideas. Before we left, she was working as a teacher in philosophy at the university. She is also a certified English teacher, and presently learning to improve her web-designing skills.

    Life out at sea can be pretty intense. Therefore, we sometimes like to stay in one place for a while, to meet other people and get to know a bit of the local culture. To us, workaway is a perfect way to realise this. We work well as a team, but we would also like to join some projects individually. After all, we live, work and travel together in a very small space and love to spend some time apart every now and then :)

    We are both pretty alround: we have many skills to offer, are physically strong, like to work hard and are not afraid of learning new things.
    We hope to join some interesting projects and meet wonderful people.

    Hope to meet you soon!
