  • Description

    We’re a couple who can never see enough of the world. We’re always wanting to keep moving and explore new things. Even though we may be from different parts of the world (Mili, Peru) (Sam, California) we’ve found commonality, love and beauty in each other, and the places and cultures we come from. We’ve been working and traveling since we’ve met. From a six month trip to Peru, seasonal painting in the San Juan islands, 'Workaways' in the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Working and skiing through the winters in California and Utah as well as countless road-trips and backpacking adventures. We work hard 10 or 11 hour workdays 5 or 6 days a week so we are no strangers to hard work. We're also very passionate and caring towards Animals of all kinds and are very interested in helping them in any way we can. We are both hungry to discover new adventures and places throughout the world together. This is what gives us energy, motivation and fuels our appetite for life. We can’t wait to share it with you and the rest of the world.

    About Mili:
    When I was a kid I would always be helping out my grandparents with their street market after school. I volunteer on a homeless shelter serving food for them. I studied communication in the university of Lima for 3 years. Where I took basic classes in photography, photo editing, film and marketing. I participated twice in a work and travel program in South Lake Tahoe working with a ski lodge support staff team. Here I got the chance to work with people from all over the world and meet my soulmate. I have experience being host, busser and cashier. I'm also a ski tec as well as a painter/refinisher of beautiful beach houses.

    About Sam: When I was a teenager I worked in a local market as a cashier then manager. I later worked for a private general contractor doing everything from light landscaping, construction, roofing and more. After that I joined a volunteer conservation group(ACE). Here I was part of a crew that would maintain trails, remove invasive plant species, back breaking dry stone masonry and help sawyers cut fire lines. I’ve worked at ski resorts as certified Ski and Board technician where I met my beautiful partner. I have the most experience painting houses. Most of my work is in the San Juan Islands where I supervised a crew. We cleaned, masked, painted and refinished exotic homes. We've both also done some concrete work, landscaping, and drywall work.
