  • Description

    I am a pediatrician and Martin is a pharmacist. We have just retired and plan to spend the next several years traveling the world to find the perfect place for us. We are not into the “9 countries in 11 days” type of touring and would like to get a feel for the people and cultures we visit. We think that Workaway would be the perfect way to do that.

  • What else ...

    We retired young so we could explore the world. We are fit, active, and responsible so you don’t need to worry about having us in your home. We both love organic gardening and we had a large garden for the last several years until we sold everything to travel full-time. We are both great with kids and pets and love to cook. Karen has experience with painting and general home repairs and Martin is flexible and will work anywhere help is needed.
