  • Description

    We are an adventurous couple, who originally met in Budapest, Hungary in the summer of 2015 while traveling. Over the course of two years we maintained a long distance relationship between Czech Republic and Netherlands, during which time we traveled, camped, hitchhiked, and backpacked around Europe together. In 2018, we lived together in Prague, where we taught English and Elementary education. We like to spend our free time hiking/walking, camping, cooking (and even more eating!), practicing yoga, reading, learning, and attending music festivals. We are both eco & health conscious. We enjoy forming deep connections with our environment while exploring new places.

    We have been on the Workaway platform for quite some time, backpacking Latin America from Guatemala to Peru from September 2018 until February 2020. Our latest adventure finds us back in Europe, as live-in caretakers for a Bed & Breakfast in Amsterdam, where we have been stationed for nearly all of 2020. This has given us a tremendous amount of experience in running a hotel, as well as in organizing and hosting a variety of social events to support our local community of artists and in operating social media accounts. We also manage and operate a community urban garden attached to the hotel, as well. We continuously look forward to forging new friendships, embracing unexpected opportunities, indulging in novel experiences, and immersing ourselves in the cultures of the communities we will help & live in. :)
