  • Descrição

    UPDATE : still currently at home in the UK, but planning starting a new adventure in 2024 for a northern tour (Iceland, Greenland, Faroes, Northern Scandinavia), so feel free to get in touch !
    Hi everyone ! We are Justin and Lorena. At the end of 2019 we left our jobs (Chef and Assistant Events Manager) at a busy hotel in Bath, UK, to start a new adventure : travelling around Europe. We have started travelling to Switzerland in our campervan, where we spent the season there in the snow looking after a chalet. We love the outdoors, and any new and exciting experiences are always welcome ! the more "out of the ordinary", the better ! we love exploring new cultures and meeting people, and wanted to see as much as we can of Europe in the next few years. Sadly as for many other people, Covid-19 has affected these plans ... We still had 2 amazing workaway experiences (construction and childminding in France, and helping out on a farm and husky kennel in Estonia !) before we decided to head back to UK :( and carry on with our "usual" thing - hospitality work. However, our plans are not cancelled but only pushed back, and we still have so many more dreams ! Ideally travelling in our campervan again (Italy, the Balkans, Eastern Europe), this was the original plan. And my latest obsession : a big tour of the North, which could include Iceland, Greenland, Faroe Island and the Northern part of Scandinavia - we might consider doing this one without the campervan.
    However, this will have to wait until the madness is over and things go back to normal (especially free movement) so it could still be quite a long time, but I'm keeping my eyes open to make a list of my favourite potential host, and keep building dreams until the time comes to make them come true ! :)

  • Quais são suas habilidades?

    We are both dedicated hospitality workers and have experience in pretty much every field of the industry - cooking, serving guests, housekeeping, maintenance, driving people around, reception ... Customer service has always been at the heart of what we do.
    We are both fluent in English, and I also speak fluent French and German (Justin is in the process of learning), and have some understanding of Spanish and Italian - and now a few Estonian words, but nowhere near enough for any kind of conversation !
    We are very flexible and easily adapt to all sorts of conditions. We both grew up in the country side, so no problem with remote location, gardening, animals, mud etc. We really love dogs and will probably be looking for some more dog sledding experience in the future. We are very open minded and happy to try anything really . Or past workaway experiences have also taught us new skills, especially animal care, farm life and also some stone wall building and basic renovation/DIY/construction. And were are slowly getting better at van life too (yes, I believe this is a skill and we've had a few (funny) misadventures before we figured out how things work, haha !)

    Mais detalhes sobre meu interesse em idiomas
    I love languages, the more the better. Wherever I am I always want to learn at least some basic words, and I'm always happy to share what I already know.

  • Algo mais...

    Justin likes forests, mountains, rivers and lakes, dogs (and animals in general), comic books, video games (and board games), music and cooking for people, a little bit of sarcasm and a good sense of humor.
    I love baking, outdoors, also mountains, lakes, etc, animals, reading (any kind of books, really) and people and animals in general.
    We are travelling together but do not mind doing things separately and working different shift patterns / having different days off (this is what we have been used to since we met as hospitality work requires a lot of flexibility). And we are always up for an adventure !
