  • Descripción

    Hi, we’re Christian & Mariam, a couple from the UK who decided to give life on the road together a go back in 2019. Between us, we graduated university, left a job and sold a house to make all this possible. And while Covid did cut our initial adventure in Asia short, we were lucky to find opportunities in the Balkans throughout 2021. Currently, we are working our way down through Central & South America!

    We are both incredibly passionate about diving into new cultures. As a multiracial couple, we have seen firsthand how beautiful it is when two different backgrounds come together. We love immersing ourselves into each fresh place through music, food, history, and language, and are always open to trying new experiences or learning new skills.

    Having met while volunteering in Borneo back in 2018, travel has always been a huge part of our relationship. Through remote work in the fields of copywriting, digital marketing and graphic design, as well as Workaway projects, we have been able to actualise our goal of making a nomadic lifestyle more sustainable. We also aim to bring these skills to any future Workaways we do, and very much look forward to the opportunity of working together!

    Our combined work background ranges from Education, Charity, Management, Media & Communications, Manufacturing, Retail and Hospitality.

    Having graduated with a degree in Business with Finance, I (Christian) began working full-time in a manufacturing plant, whilst also bartending on the side. By the time I left the company, I was managing the Repairs team and responsible for running the Tooling department. I have since been up-skilling in Digital Marketing, and also have reasonable experience with construction from decorating my own house in the UK.

  • Algo más...

    Over the last few years, we feel that we have picked up some good little hacks during our adventures that have really helped stretch our budgets and made travelling easier. However, there have also been many challenges and learning points along the way.

    As a result, we began a new page called Budget Backpackers, a platform dedicated to living nomadically and working remotely, offering a number of resources to help individuals make the transition to full-time travel. For more, find us on Instagram @budget.backpackers.
