  • Description

    Welcome to our page! We've just joined workaway and are excited for all the adventure's we'll have helping with eco projects and farming along the way! We've been together for 3 years and will be spending our fourth year together traveling through Europe and Asia (2018-2019) .

    Jake: I'm a film enthusiast who graduated with a degree in cinema 2 years ago from the University of Iowa. I'm personable, reliable, and a hard worker. For the past year I've worked as an IT specialist for the University. I love road trips, meeting new people, and trying new food and liquor from around the world. A few years ago I caught the travel bug and have been itching to leave the US and explore. I'm excited to give myself the time to get to know an area and it's people. I love to cook. Hopefully, I'll be able to catch some good recipes along the way this coming year. I ride my bike every day and am not afraid of a little hard work or exercise.

    Arlinda: I just graduated with a degree in Journalism and International Studies from the University of Iowa . There are so many things that I find exciting and fun but some of my close loves are poetry, singing, and exploring. I've always been in love with the outdoors and like to push myself to try new activities like white water rafting. I'm a quick learner and hard worker but I like to make work fun. When I was a kid I would say that any chore could be made fun and I'm still the same way! There's nothing like singing your favorite songs while folding laundry, haha. Throughout my waitressing and volunteering experiences I've learned about my passion for creating community and how important it is to keep that community welcoming, communicative, and kind in order to live in harmony. I'll have almost any conversation with you if you are willing to listen and share your thoughts. But, I won't hesitate to call someone out on their actions if they are unkind! I hope that you'll have us and we get to talk about life, love, and the pursuit of happiness.

    We are both easy going and optimistic. Jake likes to cook delicious meals for his friends while watching movies. Arlinda loves to eat those delicious meals but can cook a good meal with a recipe!
