    Hi there! Louisa and James here!

    We are a couple from Brisbane, Australia and we have recently moved our lives abroad to the United Kingdom! We are extremely passionate about travel and love nothing more than meeting new people from all walks of life and sharing experiences. We consider ourselves to be enthusiastic, energetic and hard working people with an eagerness to learn and be apart of a community.

    We joined Work Away with the aim to assist as many people and communities as possible and to share our skills to make a difference in one way or another. At the same time, working away would be an amazing chance to learn from others and grow as people.

    Below is a little description of us as individuals.

    I grew up in the Sunshine State of Queensland, Australia. Here, I learnt to love the outdoors especially anywhere near the beach and ocean. I have managed a cafe/restaurant for the last 5 years and consider myself a hard worker who will give anything a go. I especially love to cook, and hope to open a cafe one day. I am also a professional photographer and ran my own freelance business in Australia. In my opinion, travelling and experiencing other cultures is incredibly rewarding and I felt, alongside James, becoming a "workawayer" would be an excellent way to meet and learn from others. As a self-proclaimed animal lover, I would be thrilled to be given the chance to work on a farm stay or something of that nature. I am certainly not afraid to get my hands dirty and try new things. All in all I believe I am respectful, easy-going, organised and extremely hard working.

    I also grew up in Queensland, in a small country town called Toowoomba. My life has revolved around the outdoors, sport and physical activity. I have been a Secondary Physical Education teacher for the last 4 years. Whilst this has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, I'm looking forward to stepping out of the classroom and taking on new challenges in this next chapter. I have a passion for all things sports and games related, with endeavours to become a professional basketball coach one day (whilst also helping Louisa run the cafe). Like Louisa, I too love animals and would accept any opportunity to work with them with open arms. I bring a positive can-do attitude to any task given and consider myself to be highly attentive, efficient and a determined worker with the ability to adapt in any environment; all whilst bringing a smile to your face with some Aussie humour.

    We both currently hold UK Youth Mobility Scheme Visas, valid from the 06/05/2022.

    Thank you for reading!
    Louisa and James
