We are a couple who love to travel, meet new people and learn about different cultures and ways of living! We hope one day to open our own eco-friendly hostel which would serve as a holistic/arts retreat and are hoping to gain experience in building hostels while making friends for life and learning essential skills along the way.
We are highly creative people; Dan works as a freelance graphic designer and mural artist and Katie is starting out in web design and development. Together we are embarking on a super exciting adventure in working together as a travelling design studio. We have a van which we are slowly converting into a camper, ready for us to live, work and travel the world out of!
Katie is also studying towards a degree in the History of Art and can speak Spanish (Dan is learning!) and is learning French. Learning and sharing languages is something we both believe in hugely and something we hope can help shape our experiences. Katie also has experience as an Au Pair in Spain, working with young children between the ages of 7 and 11, teaching them English through fun activities such as baking, sports and games and days out.
Artistic abilities - drawing and illustration, graphic design, web design, interior design, photography/videography. Language and teaching experience. Interested in nature and plants. Would love to learn about growing our own veg. Good at cooking hearty vegetarian meals. DIY & basic carpentry, sports and games. Very hands on - love to get stuck in. Hospitality management - hard workers!
More details about my language interests
Both TEFL qualified. Katie has experience teaching English as a second language to young children.

We're both adventurous spirits and in our spare time we love to go hiking and exploring. We enjoy immersing ourselves in hands-on projects and get creative through DIY, painting, drawing, sewing etc. We also really value down time spent with others, usually through cooking, eating and drinking, and afterwards playing card/board games.
We are always looking for new skills to learn and to keep our minds active. We have previously travelled South America, where we learnt to fish in the Amazon, surf in Chile and make the best caiprinhas in Brazil!
We have both worked across the hospitality and creative sectors, and have found that we generally fit in wherever we land. We like to be adaptable and believe we are very respectable people, and will do our best to ensure we understand the people and the environments in which we will be living :)
