We are an adventurous outdoorsy (and sometimes indoorsy) long term couple that enjoy exploring the unknown. We have grown up and lived in Cape Town and now feel the need to experience different cultures together. We have travelled internationally previously, however we want to immerse ourselves in the day to day life style of another world so to speak.
I enjoy the physical world, am more introverted and do not mind getting my hands dirty. I am a registered professional construction manager by trade and would prefer working where I am building/modelling/renovating or restoring a house or structure. I have grown up in a family of animals lovers and farmers, so to work in the country would be ideal.
Ondine (born and bred in Connecticut) is a video producer, online editor, social media manager, remote business owner and the life of every party (the extrovert). Ondine is really great at making people feel comfortable in her company and is amazing with her creativity of healthy, organic, plant based dishes :)
Together we are a bit of a ying and yang, however we bring different personality traits to the social circle that will bring out the best of people. We are happy, grateful and inquisitive. We believe in peace, love, unity, community, respect, open-mindedness and uniqueness.
