    Heey, first of all, I know my name might be complicated to pronounce for some, so I have an easier version - Lana ;D
    It has been more than two years now since I made a decision to leave a corporate environment, quit my job in the UK and to go travelling hoping to find a better place. Since then I have never looked back or thought that I made a mistake.
    I travelled in South America seeing all the wonderful places the countries there have to offer, got to explore a local culture while volunteering and met so many great people. Due to COVID I had to come back to my home country - Latvia and spent a lockdown there. As soon as the borders were open I packed my suitcase and went to Gozo, Malta to work in a dive center while completing the divemaster training. That is also where I met Stefano..

    Hola! My name is Stefano, I'm a scuba diving instructor travelling and working from place to place from 2004 when after the army service in Italy I decided to give my life a twist, quit my job as a carpenter\ welder and start a new and completely different one.
    Since then I've been living in lots of different countries, such as Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Maldives, Tanzania, Oman, Bahamas. Last year due to the COVID situation I found myself working in Europe, this time in Malta.

    SINCE THEN:- we have been travelling together in Mexico and Costa Rica while doing different workaways.
    All of them were great and very different experiences - from a rancho in Valle de Bravo doing some construction works, horse care and helping with the eco hostel pre-opening work, to the hostel in Cabo San Lucas in Baja Califorina cleaning and performing all the necessary duties, and in La Paz helping a local man with his new house project and looking after his child. To the ones in Costa Rica - at the lodge in the Pacuare River that specialized in rafting we were gardening, cleaning and preparing the rooms and meals for the guests. And our last workaway in the Living Forest yoga retreat center and airbnb where we spent two months taking care of the property, guests and the animals while the owner was on holidays.

    We are now looking for our new adventure and would love to help you while getting to know the culture of the local environment and people!
