I’m Lukas, a professional web developer and designer, travelling the world bartering my work for experiences. I am german but grew up in the sunny south of Portugal, blessed with a multilingual environment and a beach close to home, but moved to Berlin to work and study in my early twenties. I started to travel the world in late 2013 and offer my skills for a room for the night, travel expenses or anything good really. I barter with volunteer projects, eco villages, sustainable businesses or charity that very often need an online specialist and don’t have the funding to pay for an agency or professional.
I want to do what I’m good at as an exchange for what other people are good at or have, mostly no money involved. I want to travel, do good things for great people and get good things in return, hence my project name “Good Things Everywhere". Ultimately I want to provide respect, love and compassion to all beings and things around me, and try to contribute to a better world through my actions.
Most transformational travel experience
With so many experiences that I could call transformational “the most transformational travel experience” is the sum of them, how my experiences unify to a bigger picture. The recycling project I worked for in New Zealand, the volunteer project teaching kids IT in Thailand, the platform for educational resources I worked for in the Netherlands or the eco village in Brazil. Everything I’ve lived has given me so much and inspired me to keep going. Every experience is a piece of the puzzle, inspirational by the extraordinary diversity of our planet and giving me hope for what comes next.
We’re the creators of our own reality. Give without expectations.
