We have a relationship for more than five years already and are experienced in living, travelling, and working together in different surroundings. Yet, this journey will be our first time to visit Asia together and we are both very eager to explore the various countries we'll visit, meet the people and learn about the specific ways of living in these places. We are especially interested in any kind of agricultural work (starting from cultivation and harvest up to dairy farming) on the one hand, and social or educational projects on the other hand. Accordingly, we are as willing to do manual work outside that requires some fitness as we are happy to engage in any kind of caring, teaching, or other tasks that involve building relationships with people.

Besides, he also got some insights into the practical aspects of cultivation and food processing.
