  • Description

    We are Kevin and Anne, we are an active, reliable and good humoured couple from Ireland. As our four children are busy with careers, travelling or in college, we are taking a gap year and looking forward to travelling more, meeting new people and exploring new cultures, experiences and work to see where it takes us for a while, and like the idea of exchanging our work and life skills for this. Neither of us are afraid of hard work and we hope to be able to contribute to your project.
    Kevin is a marine biologist in organic aquaculture, He has also worked in construction: concrete and drainage with general building skills. He has a passion for wildlife and landscape photography (FIPF, ARPS). As Kevin grew up on a farm he can turn his hand to any farm maintenance/animal care/gardening/strimming/clearing job or any outdoor work. My professional back-ground is in education; as a teacher and more recently in school management. We both have computer and office administration skills. Our hobbies are gardening, DIY, kayaking, walking, exploring, travelling, camping, and cooking. We are both very organised and like to do jobs well whatever they are. We are ready to turn our hand to anything and would love to learn new skills. Our workaway experiences so far, in France, Vietnam, Spain and Costa Rica have been great...we were teaching English, helping out in guest accommodation, painting, gardening, construction of stone stairs and decking...making new friends along the way!
    Looking forward to meeting you,
