Nosso próximo destino:Ireland - desde Abr 2022 Ver tudo
We are an early-retired couple who love travelling, meeting new friends and exploring exciting places. Now that we have the time and opportunity to travel at leisure, we've been enjoying Workaway for a few years now. We both enjoy this lifestyle immensely and look forward to enriching ourselves but, more importantly, giving back to and sharing with those that we meet along the way. In fact, we’ve made some wonderful friendships with our previous hosts that we still enjoy to this day. We are both easy going people and enjoy working hard but also relaxing and learning about the places we are staying and the people who live there.
We've built and planted raised garden beds with cages, cultivated and renewed neglected gardens, provided forest management and helped in taking care of sheep, goats, chickens, cats and dogs - pretty much the whole menagerie! Both of us have worked for friends at an organic, community supported agricultural farmstead and we’re also experienced in housesitting as well as carpentry/joinery and property caretaking.
Both of us are vaccinated and heathy and are able to legally stay in the US, EU & UK for any period of time. We have our own transportation as well.
If you think our skills could benefit you just let us know and we look forward to helping you out!

He also has a background in blacksmithing and MIG/ARC welding (mainly for repair of equipment and commissioned pieces). He plays a mean accordion as well!

We both enjoy cooking and keeping a tidy home wherever we travel to. Prior to retiring, both of our careers involved dealing with the public from all walks of life, so we’re quite comfortable interacting and meeting new people.
