Macchu Picchu with Meridith in December 2017
We are a Polish-American couple age 30/32 who decided to travel the world during 2016-2017. We saved up for 5 years and quit our jobs.
February-April We make our way from Ethiopia to South Africa.
May-June West Coast USA & Canada
October-April- South America- Colombia to southern Argentina by land
Depending on the host's situation, we are hoping to have at least 2 days per week (unless work hours are shorter per day) to venture out around and get to know the area.
As of January 2017 we have made it from Portugal to Hong Kong by land, then Hong Kong to India mostly by land. Late Feb we arrived to Addis Ababa. We have made it to 30 countries so far in the last 10 months.
We will be in many different places but would like to pick a couple countries to stay for a month or more, help out in some way, and in return better get to know a different part of the world and its culture. We both speak fluent English and I (Michał) speak fluent French, Spanish and Polish. Meridith's Spanish is... rusty, to be nice. We love to work both with people and alone, indoors or outdoors. From an early age we both started working in customer service and food industry. Meridith focused on ceramics for a few years, women's rights and health, anthropology. Michal's hobbies include writing, painting, linguistics and political science. We have volunteered in clinics, schools, and a little bit in farms so far.
