  • Description

    Hi there! Our names are Ashley and Victor!

    We come from the eccentric land of Berkeley, California.

    While Ashley is studying in Buenos Aires and Santiago, Victor is hoping to explore the local nature, music, food, and partner-dancing of Chile :) When we are not exploring, we are students at the University of California, Berkeley.

    For the last four years, we have embedded ourselves in a cooperative living community. We both have experience living, cooking, cleaning, and gardening within a community (we are members of 64-person communal household).

    We are both happy people who share a sense of wonder for the everyday. We are interested in communities different from our own, and integrating our experiences with the values we use to navigate the world around us.

    We've both got strong work ethics and a great sense of humor.
    And we are excited to help however we can!

    One Amazing Thing I’ve Done (Victor):
    Met the girl of my dreams and swept her off her feet. She honestly, makes me believe I am capable of anything I set my heart upon.

    I once bought a one-way ticket Asia. I left with a suitcase and a small bag, not knowing how long I'd be overseas, but arrived with only a small backpack and the clothes which I carried.

    Letting go of my (emotional) luggage was the best thing that could have happened to me -- it reaffirms that I can be happy without much.

    Halfway across the world with little knowledge of the city's local customs, transportation systems, and language, I was able to explore half a dozen countries, make dear life-long friends, and experience memories I will always hold.
