  • Description

    Hi hosts!

    We will be spending the next two years exploring South America.

    We love the outdoors and exploring new places. Hiking, camping, cycling, horseback riding, caving and good times with old and new friends.

    We are looking forward always to new adventures!

    We are most excited in opportunities that would allow us to design & create furniture, or to work with horses.
