  • Description


    Harry and I met while traveling in New Zeland 2014. He was on his way from country to country in the South Pacific and I was au pairing.

    We took off in a caravan traveling all over NZ, onto Indonesia, and I followed him back to the UK.

    Since then we have been jumping the pond back and forth spending time with each others family before our next adventure.

    We travelled North America in our renovated truck camper 2016-2017 where we spent the winter in Canada skiing and volunteer managing cabins in the Rockies.

    Below you can see our camper van we remodeled before our big adventure.

    I, Rachel, graduated from uni with a degree in education & taught for a few years but eventually moved overseas to Australia. I traveled the South Pacific for a few years before meeting Harry and decided teaching wasn't my thing. I love to nanny/au pair but a school setting wasn't my calling aka why I decided to become yoga certified. I have a lot of experience in hospitality and marketing. I am a certified 200 yoga instructor keen to offer classes in different locations! I have been a manager of 2 businesses (medical spa & dry cleaners) as well as run my own marketing company on the side (I am a pro at website design & social media/advertising).

    We both are huge lovers for the outdoors, fishing, camping, kayaking, and meeting others. We love to ski in the winter months, and be somewhere warm in the summer months. We love just being ourselves and sharing our quirky side with everyone we meet. While traveling we have stayed in many hostels/Airbnbs. Harry is trained in outdoor adventures, sports, and leadership.

    Harry is a keen mechanic and often found covered in motor oil from his 1973 VW bug & soon our 1980 westfalia we recently purchased. He knows how to drive a manual and I automatic. He grew up working with his grandpa in his field and herding sheep. He attended college for outdoor studies. He can drive a tractor (eventually wants to own a large John Deer). Harry currently is working in construction/carpentry and night shift cheffing at a local pub. He is a complete handy man, I swear Harry can fix anything. His patience is amazing and I admire his hard work as his partner in life. He also builds furniture out of recycled materials that we sell on the side for some income. To top it off, Harry is also a ski instructor & has his welding qualification.

    We are very busy bee people and sitting still is NOT for us. We go above and beyond for anyone we meet, with pleasure.

    We do not smoke & have no diet restrictions, promise! No surprises here ;)

    Our Facebook for our camper has a large following so follow us too! We recently purchased a 1980 vanagon to restore....


    If you are looking for a loyal, honest, and hardworking couple message us! We'd love to hear from you!

    We are planning our summer in Europe 2017 and anything in between. We are planners and like hosts to commit early!
