    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Aspiring world travelers, we're on a mission to get a local taste of as many locales as we can. Workaway just seems like a great way to do that.

    It's important for us to say that we care about working in an orderly way, meaning planning ahead and helping you make a change in your surroundings. We don't mind doing daily chores, but don't want it to be the main part of our work. It's also important for us to be heard, we have lots of ideas and we're good at creative thinking, so expect us to say it when we have a better\different way to do something.

  • What skills do you have?

    We're both skilled in the kitchen and in house & yard works, not afraid of hard work. Lovers of all animals, we raised cats, dogs, bunnies, fishes etc, and would love to work with them.
    Noa worked in restaurants for over 6 years, as a waitress and a trained cook, and loves making any kind of food that will challenge her. Also a skilled photographer and photo-editor, she can build websites and create various content for the web.
    Shay is a licensed tour guide, massage & shiatsu therapist, and a hobbyist handyman. He loves tinkering with things indoors and out, and digging in piles of mess looking for treasures. Also loves to cook and bake.

  • What else ...

    We noticed that one of the most important things for us in feeling welcome in a place is our living conditions, we don't mind simple & basic, but if something can be made better we will point that out and would like to put time and energy to that together with our hosts. A happy volunteer is a productive volunteer :)
