  • Description

    We are an Australian/Latvian couple currently backpacking through Southeast Asia. We met travelling in Europe and exploring new places and countries together has been our priority since. We are passionate about the world, support an environmentally friendly lifestyle and follow a vegetarian diet. We love adventures and new experiences and are very excited to become a part of the Workaway community. We are looking to work in any environment/position and are open to all opportunities. We are both very communicative and social and are looking forward to making new friends on this journey.
    Jimmy has 10 years work experience across a number of fields and has been in various customer service management roles in retail and hospitality for 7 years. Aside from travel he enjoys Australian football, the ocean and hiking.
    Bea (short for the Latvian name Beate) has studied Journalism and Communications in England and has extensive work experience in medical care, hospitality, customer service and marketing. Apart from travelling she enjoys anything to do with animals, reading and potato chips.
