Marissa and I have been living and working in Southwest Florida for the past two years and although it's been nice, we are restless and ready for something new. Our short-term plan is to take some time off from working to explore the US. We both like meeting new people and learning new things so we are excited to try Workaway.
A little bit about us:
Marissa likes listening to fringy podcasts about historical things and language, attending renaissance fairs, and going on hikes to forage for wild mushrooms (although she can't really do that in Florida). She is excited by the opportunity to talk about tea, illustration, or foreign places.
I enjoy some of the same things; the museum visits, hikes, and a good book with tea, but I tend to get antsy when I sit still for too long. I would rather find a pickup soccer game or go get a membership to a rock climbing gym. I also enjoy a cup of black coffee before a long bike ride.
We are both eager to branch out of our usual routine and to put our time and skills toward something meaningful and helpful.
