  • Description

    Hey there! The two of us are passionate about seeing everything the world has to offer. Consequently, we actually met while we were studying abroad in Barcelona, Spain in 2017 (a time that we both agree was perhaps the best of our lives). With that, we love meeting new people - from cultures alike and new. Drinking coffee, eating new and exciting foods, talking with locals, and listening to music are some of our favorite pastimes. We believe that we are unique characters, each with a lot to share. We started our Southeast Asia travels end of November 2018 and got our Work Study Visas for Australia for 2019. Read more about us individually below and feel free to message us to get to know us better :)

    Amanda (Seattle, Washington, USA) graduated from California Lutheran University in Southern California with a degree in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations and Advertising (Dec. 2017). She studied graphic design and art history during her time in Barcelona. During her free time, Amanda enjoys taking photos of the places and people she encounters during her travels, taking her time in art museums, outdoor sports (hiking, skiing, sailing, etc.), and being at the beach. She has worked as a nanny (part time and full time off) and started babysitting when she was 13.. that being said, she loves kids!

    Angus (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) graduated from University British Columbia with a degree in Finance and marketing (Dec. 2017). In Barcelona, he gained appreciation for local cuisine and wine. This was the spark that lead him to pursue his passion for wine as a career. He hopes to be able to take his knowledge into the field and learn about viticulture and winemaking. Outside of wine, Angus has a love for food, animals, footy and learning about the world. He enjoys getting to know people over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine (depending on time of day). He loves to cook and loves animal care but, he is open to learn some new skills in gardening, farming, construction, etc.
