    Super Workawayer

  • Description

    Katerina is half Greek half English, Szymon is Polish. We lived together in Greece for 3 years, then moved to Poland for a year in order for Katerina to learn Polish and for Szymon to catch up with family, friends and life here in Poland. We are now taking some 'time out' and heading to a more southern country to explore, learn and be warm :)
    Szymon likes languages a lot!!! He studied Hungarian and Russian philology and speaks a few other languages too! Katerina studied Sociology and Education and likes to be involved in non official education projects. We both have experience in working in hotels and also as support workers for people with disabilities. So our experiences and skills are very varied.
    We have a big passion for traveling, exploring, experiencing and adventuring! But we dont really like being tourists so this is why we want to be workawayers :) we want to experience the culture of the person we stay with and through them to get an impression of what the place is like. We want to offer our energy to a project and in return to have a 'home' to go to when we are tired from exploring. We want to enjoy, talk, work, exchange and grow with others :)
