  • Description

    Me (Brendan from Philadelphia, USA) and my wonderful wife (Liliana from Bogota, Colombia) have decided to take a step back from the ‘grind’ and get out of our comfort zones by travelling the globe. As much as we have let it, life has treated us well - we are stable, healthy and have a great big circle of family and friends, but there has been something missing; an unsatisfied thirst for traveling, learning, and giving back. We are hard-working, fun, social, educated, honest, and dependable.
    We have already helped with farming and sustainable water solutions for schools in Kenya, a homestay in Egypt, renovating a historic property in France, and building eco-camps in Ireland through various platforms.
    We look forward to the challenge of returning as the best version of ourselves through engagement and open-mindedness with the people of the world and would love to meet you! ;)
    We left on May 29, 2019 and will be traveling through 6 continents hand-in-hand in pursuit of enlightenment through volunteer opportunities, free range traveling and, of course, endless adventure.

  • What skills do you have?

    We are an easy going, flexible couple that can thrive in and enjoy most in any circumstance. Love the outdoors, food, adventure, history, people, art, sports, health, culture, animals, and are always looking for something new to learn and experience.
    Liliana is relentless, curious, reliable, organized, creative, and is great with children. She has also gained experience as an English teacher, nanny, events manager, international sales representative and manager, and in the other side of the spectrum she can teach you to dance some tango or salsa!
    Brendan is an outside-the-box thinker, handy, light-hearted, unbound, hard-working and free-spirited. He has a lot of experience in trying to be as cool as Liliana along with experiencing in everything else; construction, hospitality, finance, real estate management, marketing...also loves any type of sports but has a special affection for football (soccer!)
