  • Description

    We are two friends on a world trip, travelling with our own car. We met when we were both volunteers at a children’s home in Nepal and share a love of travelling. We left Switzerland on 1 July 2017 and have travelled through Austria, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Russia, The Stans including the Pamir Highway, China, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia and then we shipped our car to Australia for a six month stay. We would like to spend some of our time here in Australia with Workaway families to get to know the lifestyle and country better. When our time in Australia is over we will ship our car to Vladivostok and travel back to Europe via Mongolia.

    I am a retired medical Secretary with one daughter and two teenage grandchildren. I love dogs and cats and most other animals. Brigitte is an adventure-loving free spirit, with two grown up daughters. She worked as a dispatcher of cranes before giving up her job to travel for 2 years. She will resume work on her return to Switzerland - but who knows??? She is already in love with Australia!!!
