  • Description

    (Martyna) After our year of work-awaying, I returned to NYC and worked with start-ups and managed a legal non-profit. Switching gears, I took up graduate school in the Netherlands, and am currently living and working in Australia. During my time here, I would like to travel and volunteer in New Zealand and throughout Asia, offering enthusiasm to learn, an open-mind to meet new, brilliant faces, and willingness to work hard on big and small projects, whether farming, building, caring for animals, or helping bring special places to life, I'm keen to get my hands dirty :) Please contact me directly at, Cheers!

    We are New Yorkers (originally from Poland), happiest exploring, reading, writing, and eating things! We spent a year traveling around Europe this way, volunteering on farms, hostels, holiday resorts, and all kinds of projects; working on a saffron farm in Italy, harvesting olives, preparing a Christmas feast for guests at a boutique hotel in the Spanish mountains, volunteering at a surf camp and in the kitchens of a yoga retreat in Portugal, among other truly beautiful experiences.

    (Aleksandra) I spent a season working as an assistant manager of a guesthouse in Tuscany, a beautiful and fulfilling experience. Besides experience in hospitality, food service, farming, baking cakes, and a myriad of other skills, I can also help you out with any writing projects, marketing, or social media. I have been working for several hospitality/travel websites as a freelance writer, writing and editing content. You can view some of my work (including pieces based on workaday experiences) and pictures from my travels on my website: Above all, I am open-minded, friendly, caring, and hard working individual seeking to learn and explore the world. I look forward to working with you!
