  • What skills do you have?

    Ben is a carpenter by trade and very good with his hands, has also been a maintenance worker on hotels and condos on a ski resort, so has a basic understanding of most trades, has also spent time on farms and landscaping projects.

    Bridie enjoys cooking and gardening. She has a fair bit of child care experience back in Australia and loves kids. She was a housekeeper last time she was in Canada, with good attention to detail.

    Both Ben and Bridie have had a little bit of horse riding experience, and both would be keen to help anywhere they could with the animals.

  • What else ...

    We both met each other at work on a ski resort, Ben was in maintenance and Bridie was a house keeper. Once the season was over we both headed back to Australia for surgery. In March we set off on our travels again, riding a motorbike from South Vietnam to the North. Once we completed that we did a two week road trip around Bc and Alberta, living out the back of our Van. We have just spent that last 3 weeks in Mexico and now we are back in Bc looking for our next adventure. With our last 3 months of travelling we have become exceptional UNO and backgammon players as they have been the two games we have travelled with. Both are very excited to experience life working on a ranch/ farm
