  • Description

    Hello from the road, this is Tami and Erik.

    We hope that your day has been amazing so far, filled with a lot of happiness and big smiles. If not, let's hope we can give you one by the time you reach the end of this presentation. First of all, what calls us to set up this Workaway profile is a curiosity for learning more about ourselves, learning more about people, learning more about the world we live in. We are right now hungry for exploring and discovering our own voices as well as sharing and learning more from the people around us. If you mention dancing, painting, music, creative, art projects, you can be sure that you will have our full attention. Also, social matters and human values are important for us. However, in the bottom line there are certain things that call us more than others.

    For Erik this is music, for Tami this is kids. And with these fields as a starting point, since last summer, we have now started creating various projects mixing our fields and interests. Some examples of recent projects are Storytelling-concerts for kids, Concerts with original music, Songwriting with specific aims, Making a fundraiser package for a child with Rett Syndrome (music, video, web presentation), Jewelry workshop for kids in a summer camp in Romania, giving salsa classes, making art from recyclable materials, working with marketing for different projects etc.

    As roommates and friends, we are respectful and up to making things work. If there are any problems, let's find a solution. We care about keeping a positive mindset and attitude and always aim to give our best wherever we are invited. So far, we've done three Workaway experiences and both of them has been very rich and given a lot of personal growth for both the hosts and us. Of course, you can't tell until afterwards how these experiences will turn out, but you'll get the best of us. That's for sure.

    We invite you to discover more about us and our projects in the links below and if any questions, don't hesitate to reach out. Whatever it may concern.
