  • Description

    Hi!

    We are Cass and Jamie, a recently married couple in our 30's who have decided to travel the world for our honeymoon. We have just completed several months in Europe and are now heading to South America for the foreseeable future.

    We are very active and enjoy everything outdoors. We spend our weekends hiking and surfing. In the evenings you could find us playing board games with friends with a cheeky glass of vino. We never hesitate to say yes to new adventures and new cultural experiences. This means that we have spent the last few years learning to ski and snowboard as we wanted to learn a new skill for the winter.

    At home, Cass works in tourism for the Youth Hostel Association (YHA) and Jamie works as a sales and marketing consultant. What we ideally want to achieve by joining workaway is to be able to immerse ourselves into communities where we can help people and obtain a new sense of how other cultures live. We have a keen interest in working on community projects or with teaching children. We have both worked extensively with the tourism industry in Australia and hope that we can adapt the skills we have there when we are on a workaway.
