  • Description

    We are college friends, former housemates, and now travel buds Sarah and Maggie!

    We're at a point in our lives where it seems like we'd better try and see as much of the country as possible (before that becomes a more difficult endeavor, for various reasons).

    I (Maggie) enjoy making art, growing vegetables, making things form scratch. Having grown up in the US and China, I'm adaptable and enjoy learning about different perspectives and ways of living. I recently spent a year in an intentional community working on a CSA garden and helping to run life-sharing households.

    I (Sarah) like making music, teaching, and trying new things. I studied music in college and play piano, flute, and some other silly instruments. I spent this past summer living and teaching at an arts camp and love working with kids of all ages! I also speak Spanish and can juggle a soccer ball 100 times.
