  • Description

    22.10.2019: we just finished a Camino del Santiago round tour on our bikes in seven weeks. Starting in San Sebastián we took the Norte to Santiago, then Finisterre and Muxia, from Porto the Portugues and back to Pamplona/San Sebastián the Franches.

    Now we are ready for volunteering with YOU.

    We are glad you found our profile and would like to introduce our selves!
    We are a married couple, Barbara (*️️️️️️️️️1963, primary school teacher ) and Andreas (*️️️️️️️️️1958, theologian).
    During our last sabbatical year in 2013 we spent 3 months volunteering in Jerusalem in the pilgrim house "Ecce Homo".
    In August 2019 we will start a sabbatical year. We will travel by car, our bicycles with us, via Switzerland and France to norhern Spain. Beginning in San Sebastián we will cycle the "Camino de Norte" to Santiago di Compostella and cycle back along the “Camino Frances“.
    After that we are looking forward to find some Workaway places where we can help with our skills and knowledge. We are also glad to get to know new people, local culture and gain experiences.
    We like to contribute in different ways to the places we come to, by trying to share our energy, time, skills etc. that we may have. This way we hope to leave people with happy memories of a good time of sharing.
    Since many years we are members of the international travelling organisation “servas” (www.servas.org) and the cycling organisation “warm showers” (www.warmshowers.org), hosting people from all over the world. On our website www.paul-engl.at you can find more about our travel experiences.

  • Quelles sont vos compétences ?

    We are both quite practical and can help in the garden, pick fruits, help building, help with animals and do maintenance work. In Palestine we got a few experience with olive picking.

    Andreas is experienced in IT, for example creating homepages, Office, images, but also practical knowledge how to set up and run a computer. Since some years we are happy to work with apple devices.

    We like being "tour guides" so we e.g. organized several journeys to the Middle East (Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Palestine) for small groups of friends or Pax Christi and IFOR (Fellowship of Reconciliation).
    We are used to accompaign and look after people what also was our job at the reception of the "Ecce Homo" Guest house in Jerusalem.

    Although our jobs are very different we are used to work manualy e.g. in renovation (with wood, electricity, painting...)!!!
    We're quick and eager learners, wish to contribute to every place we get invited to!
