  • Description

    We are two former Language Teachers turned nomads who need a reprieve from a country that elected Donald Trump. We are responsible, resourceful, flexible, creative, social people with excellent organization and planning skills. We can clean the hell out of a toilet, floor, or anything else you send our way, invent imaginative new pub crawls, throw amazing themed dance parties, paint wall size murals, organize a parade, or just sit back and calmly handle reception. We are pretty sure it’s all going to feel less challenging than teaching American teenagers second languages. Oh yeah, and if you think we are bluffing check out our pictures.

At a workaway at a beach bar and campground at Gjipe Beach, Albania we spent three glorious weeks bartending and doing reception for guests.
At a workaway in Peshkopi, Albania Monica painted murals in the hostel and Jacob worked on website design and SEO optimization.
At a workaway at an eco farm in Croatia we built a round house out of pine saplings. This design was then modified to protect delicate crops from the sun.
These really are things we've actually done!
