We are Anita (40) and Joeri (41) - Two drifters off to see the world -
We recently bought a beautiful orange camper van to travel through Europe and who knows where the wind blows. We have made longer trips in the past. In 2012, we traveled from Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand via New Zealand to Patagonia to end up in Cuba. In 2016 we stayed closer to home and traveled through Norway and Sweden for half a year to make beautiful trips, both on foot and with our folding canoe. We liked that last trip so much that we have now decided to take the plunge and continue as 'digital nomads'. Soon our house in the Netherlands will go up for sale and the world will become our new backyard.
Joeri is a journalist and Anita is a filmmaker. It is therefore very important for us to be able to go online every now and then to continue our work while travelling. But we certainly don't want to just stare at a screen, preferably as little as possible. We especially like playing outside, hiking, trail running, kayaking (we have a packraft, which is an inflatable kayak) and we also like making music. Together we are in a jazz band and that is why a number of musical instruments (including guitar and ukulele) are with us on the bus. But don't worry, it can all be done acoustically or with headphones so if you don't like jazz, you won't hear us ;-)
We have experience with vegetable gardens, gardening, lawn mowing (motorized or not) and we love dogs and cats. We have no experience with kettle but we are willing to learn if you guide us. We don't have any pets ourselves, but we have often been a (permanent) babysitter for the pets of friends and neighbours, and we did that with a lot of love. By the way, we love all animals and that's why they don't come on our plate. You also want to know that we do not smoke and that we speak fluent English and German and Anita is quite proficient in Spanish and French.
The reason we sign up for Workaway is because Joeri has deadlines every 6-8 weeks and that's when we have to stay in one place so he can finish work. During that time we can't enjoy the outdoor so much because he needs reliable internet connection. Meantime Anita can help you out with chores in your house, your garden, land, cooking, cleaning or with taking care of the children. Joeri can help also but not as much as Anita :-)

Quelles sont vos compétences ?
Joeri his parents lived in Sweden for 15 years and there we have helped with painting the stuga and the sheds, chopping wood, gardening, mowing the grass with a motorized lawn mower, cleaning the pool and during the season also helping with serving coffee and tea in the tea house.
Anita is a very good cook and makes delicious vegetarian and vegan food. She also loves to bake cake and cookies whenever she has time. Her speciality are Swedish kanelbullar ;-)
We can also help with filming or photography since that is our job.
