    Super Workawayer

  • Description

    Hi there,

    We (Lynsey and Alex) are a couple originally from Colorado. We've been together for the past 6 years and have spent the last two living in Europe. We quit our jobs a while back and have been enjoying the workaway lifestyle. So far we've stayed at an off-grid organic farm, a sustainable communities project, a winery and a retreat centre. And we like it, so we'd like to keep doing it!

    We are hoping to find a workaway where we can help out on a farm, garden and/or guesthouse. We're looking forward to learning more about other cultures, eco friendly lifestyle, permaculture, gardening, cooking and outdoor activities in general. In our spare time we enjoy reading, cooking, cycling, hiking and spending time outdoors.

    We're also currently learning Spanish and are looking for a place to practice and improve our Spanish skills.

    A little bit about us:

    Lynsey: I have moved around a bit but call California home. I love spending time outdoors hiking, surfing, camping and gardening. I studied Anthropology and Environmental Sustainability in school where I was involved in a number of sustainability projects. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, reading and practicing yoga.

    Alex: Originally from Colorado, I grew up spending a lot of time in the mountains hiking and skiing. I spend most of my time outside of work reading, hiking, cooking and learning new things. I studied English and Political Science in college and enjoy discussing current events and philosophy.
