  • Descrição

    Mike has been retired as a social worker for the past year, and wants to continue being happily occupied for a good few years yet.
    I love practical projects, travel, Europe, people.
    Janine has retired more recently, from mental health services, and has similar views on the good and constructive life. We hope to spend our retirement exploring the world, using workaway as a way to spend longer in places and really get more of a feeling of what it's like to live there.
    Our children are now independent, so we have no time constraints.
    We could provide a useful working team; janine's a good labouer but also happy to do cooking,cleaning etc. She loved looking after a 3 year old in mallorca (and got rave reviews from him 😀)
    We are reliable, adaptable, resourceful, respectful, industrious, and friendly.
    It is important to mix work with pleasure, try new challenges, and meet new people.
    We are happiest when travelling, cooking, camping, cycling, hiking, doing DIY, and swimming; especially when it is sunny.
    We like animals...we have had guide dog puppies with us until the time when their training began.and more recently have been enjoying house and pet sitting in the UK (reviews from this can be shared)
    We speak some French and Spanish but always willing to learn more.

  • Quais são suas habilidades?

    I have renovated my house - laid floors, plastering, brickwork, tiling, doors.... and my wife was a good labourer during this time.
    I built a large patio/decking area in France 4 years ago, and recently laid a patio at home.
    I've just made a gate, a bike shed, and built a brick wall.
    I've done some fencing, and gardening for friends.
    Last summer I did a week of stone walling in France.
    I did my first workaway last October for 4 weeks, building a partition wall, excavation of concrete, and some block work.
    I'm competent/safe with tools.
    Cycle maintenance.
    We can cook; my wife better than me.

    We're friendly and calm.
    We're resourceful, flexible, reliable.

    We look forward to a retirement from our jobs, and unlimited time to travel the world.
