  • Description

    Hello beautiful people :) We are a friendly, mature and respectful, outgoing couple, originally from New Zealand but have been living in Australia for the past 15 years or more. Having done the working life, it's now time for us to realise our dreams and create our own adventures. We are currently into our 3rd year of travels and have so far, visited over 20 countries, and now intend to travel a little more slowly. To assist with this, we have recently built a campervan while in Bulgaria and are now much more mobile. Most recently we have decided to move to Portugal and have applied for residency.
    We are hardworking and well-skilled all-rounders, that are keen to see new places and make new friends around the world and experience various cultures.
    Ultimately, our travels will see us helping out in a Farming or Eco environment, Construction of new buildings and structures, Learning more within the hospitality and accommodation sector, Landscaping and outdoors and many other opportunities that will present themselves and allow us to interact with others. It is worth noting that we are not city people, so our best suited environments will find us in nature, near the bush or beach.
    Ideally, we enjoy doing workaways of around 2 weeks in duration so we are not "confined" to one specific area but have also extended this on many occasions, when the right environment presents itself.
