    Hi, I'm Sophie!

    I'm traveling with my sister, Nellie, and our main goal is to learn Spanish. Nellie is taking a gap year and I'm working remotely on the road. We're athletic girls from Colorado (so we can do labor-intensive jobs!) and are interested in working on farms, helping out in hospitality, and teaching English.

    We both grew up in Cape Town, where our nomadic lifestyle was sparked from excursions all over southern Africa.

    I moved to Thailand to work with Burmese migrants. I came back to Colorado and graduated from college and continued to travel.

    A series of events led me to travel around the world in search of my lost Rohingya friends who fled for their lives from Myanmar.

    Their stories inspired me to start my nonprofit organization, Books Unbound – to develop contextualized learning materials for refugees. With my international team of artists, animators, and designers, we provide materials for marginalized communities who are unable to attend a traditional school.

    Since my work is remote, I've decided to get back on the road and start traveling with Nellie, my younger sister.


    Hi, I'm Nellie!

    I was born in South Africa and lived there for about six years before relocating back to the US. I graduated from high school in Colorado. I'm taking a gap year before going to nursing school in September, 2022.

    I've been playing piano for 13 years and was involved in several bands at my school for 6 years. I have experience as a music teacher and am trying to pick up the guitar while I'm on the road. I love rock climbing, hiking, swimming, surfing, and I'm eager to try more!

    I have a lot of experience in food service, hospitality, some labor-intensive work -- and I am eager to learn more! I am a hard worker and interested in gaining new skillsets in farmwork, renovation projects, and teaching.

    Sophie and I are both wine lovers and foodies, always interested in learning something new from the people we meet along the way.

    We look forward to connecting with you!
