  • Description

    * Both triple vaccinated against Covid-19 (Pfizer) *

    We are two recent Product Design graduates from Leicester, England. We are excited to travel and experience everything the world has to offer before starting our careers.

    I (Ellen) work as a lifeguard at England’s National Water Sports Centre. I teach kayaking and paddleboarding as well as running activity sessions on an inflatable obstacle course, high ropes, raft building and an assault course. Everyone who knows me knows I am an organised and confident person; I enjoy working with large groups of people and helping to provide them with experiences they will cherish.

    And I (Andrew) spent my University summers travelling and working abroad. I love variety in travel and have seen a lot of Europe in the process, from hiking in the arctic, to farming stinging nettles in the mountains of Bosnia. I also spent two summers working for the Boy Scouts of America in Rhode Island, where I became a manager. I enjoy leaving my comfort zone and am very open minded towards new experiences :)

    Due to Covid we spent 2020 stuck in the UK and are keen to explore again, and to share skills and experiences. Despite this we made the most of the time at home, we took a tiny boat (with no toilet or shower...) across the country along the canal network. As long as you can provide a toilet, it will feel like luxury!
