    Activities we are interested in:

    We would love to meet people who want to share car hires and get out into the country for hikes. We love music so if anyone is up for going to a music gig we'd be happy to join (Coachella?!).

  • Description

    Me and Harrison have a joint love for everything outdoors – we actually met at a festival. During the weekends we hike, kayak and bird watch. We are both skiers and love being in nature. We are extremely sociable and love meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. I have lived in Hong Kong, Australia and the UK and Harrison has travelled Europe going to various music festivals. The reason why we want to use Workaway is to learn about other ways of life and build upon skills outside of the traditional working environment. We want to learn how to create a better life for ourselves outside of the traditional 9-5.
