IN NEAR EAST CURRENTLY
We are a young family of three: husband, working in IT, wife - speech and language therapist and grant writer and baby daughter.
I am working as a speech and language therapist with children. I've been involved in international youth work and projects for 13 years, participated in AEGEE organisation, Youth in Action/Erasmus+ program; was volunteering at Winter Paralympic Games 2014.
Husband has been living in South Korea, volunteered in Mexico and Iceland. He is experienced QA. Very decent, polite, calm, tactful person, he listens carefully to people and ready to help.
Kid's charming and smiling girl, obsessed with pets.
We are from Moscow and last year have been living in Moldova and now exploring Europe and Near East region.
We enjoy Near East so much now! I feel like I belong here.
That would be cool to be hosted by a local and experience an authentic vibe. We love to cook, reading books also we are neat at home and respect people around. We have board games with us also :)
