  • Description

    **We have both been double vaccinated against Covid-19**

    We are Tom (30) and Charlotte (30) from Birmingham in England, UK. We are a friendly, open-minded, happy and adventurous couple! We have a passion for travel and are looking to continue exploring and immersing ourselves in new cultures. Between us we have travelled to many countries all over the world from India and Australia to places closer to home such as Scotland and Italy, we really love experiencing as wide a range of different cultures and experiences as possible :)

    Both of us have a great work ethic and are always open to new things. We are both very outgoing and sociable and love meeting new people from different backgrounds and cultures. We would say we are pretty laid back and easy to get on with!

    We would love to use the Workaway opportunities to help on projects with similar passions to ours such as art, carpentry and sustainability and are really excited about the chance to temporarily become part of a new community.

    Over the last couple of years we have spent time travelling around and exploring the UK and Ireland in a camper van that we converted ourselves from an old work van. We really loved this way of living and plan to get a van when we get to Australia and travel in this way for a much longer period of time!

    More about us:

    Hi, I'm Charlotte!
    I would say that I am a very creative and artistic person and studied Art at University before becoming an Art teacher. I love lots of types of art including painting and drawing, printmaking, textiles and theatre costume and set design.
    I also love literature and reading, swimming and walking.

    As well as being a qualified Art Teacher in the UK, I also have my TEFL qualification. I am currently working as a remote English Tutor and am teaching students who are a wide range of ages which I really enjoy. I would like to continue to use these skills in language exchange opportunities with Workaway.

    I am very environmentally conscious and very interested in sustainability. I am always trying to learn more and find new ways to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. I have been vegetarian for about 5 years.

    Hi, I'm Tom!
    I'm a cheerful, kind and energetic person who likes to express creativity in any way I can. my work allows me a lot of room to explore my creativity, and my hobbies extend that even further, as I count drawing, writing and furniture making as some of my favourite activities.
    I am also a big fan of music and podcasts, and love to push my limits through sports like boxing and weight lifting.

    Working in the building trade for 10+ years has given me a wealth of experience and skills from managing large scale construction projects, to handling day to day maintenance issues.

    I have also recently completed my TEFL qualification and I'm hoping to be able to gain some teaching experience as we travel.
