    Hi There !

    We are a couple from Switzerland and France. Félix is 29 and Aline 30. In Swizerland, Félix worked is a teacher with mentally disabled children and Aline worked in Human Resources. We already travelled in some regions of the world : many European countries, South-East Asia, USA, Egypt… We had a quiet life in one of the smallest country in the world until last year, when both of us wanted a change.

    For many reasons, we decided to go to Canada, one of the biggest country in the world. Both of us were drawn at random to receive a Working and Travel Visa. We mainly want to discover a new culture, improve our English skills and change our habits ! :)

    We arrived in Montreal May 2017, we bought a car and traveled all around Canada until February 2019. We stopped in some farms of the WWOOF, HelpX and Workaway networks in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan and B.C. House sitting is also something we have done in 3 different places of B.C. (Vancouver Island, North Thompson Valley, Cariboo). We also found some jobs in B.C. (Teaching, fruit picking, warehouse work, Tim Hortons).

    After almost 2 years in Canada, we wanted to see one other culture; let's go down to Mexico! And after? Why not Cuba, Guatemala and Belize?

    We think that we have complementary skills to help you! Félix likes to cook and has experience in restaurants as a cook, and at the bar. He also likes to work in a garden and has learned skills in all ranches and farms we have visited in Canada. Aline loves to take care of animals and has very good skills. She is sensitive about animal conditions and is a vegetarian. It’s very important for her that humans share their life with positive reinforcement.

    Together we like to discover new things and we will be glad to work with you. Otherwise Aline likes music and used to be a singer in a Rock and Blues band. Félix likes to play sports (squash, badminton) and appreciates the fresh air from the sea. Both of us enjoy simple pleasures like a good meal with a glass of wine, a walk in nature or a live show in a bar.

    Oh! We almost forgot someone! We also travel with Rocky, our Jack Russell (very calm for a Jack). He is a small dog very well-socialized, kind and not at all aggressive. He is 5 years old and comes everywhere with us. He is used to horses and other animals and usually try to help in the farm. Please check the reviews about him! We really like walking in the outdoors with Rocky.

    Aline has a good level in English, Félix a very good one and Rocky only speaks French ;-)
    We are motivated to improve ours skills !
