About Me


Our mission is to experience a new way of living, new cultures and people - and to have loads of fun along the way!


UK 'Northeners', 27 & 28 yrs old, very laid back and just interested in getting a new perspective on life and seeing some amazing parts of the world. We both like outdoors activities, (although Dave much more keen!), love food and good times with interesting people.
Other facts:
-Dave has a ginger beard, an impressive knowledge of the capital cities of the world, a fondness for experimental jazz and a vast capacity for real ale
-I do not have a ginger beard nor a love of jazz in any form, however, do like cakes, animals and sunshine. Also quite fond of real ale.
-We don't do 'couply' things


Sounds cheesy, but life is short, make the most of it. And be nice to people!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Probably for me scuba diving in the Bay Islands or Salar de Uyuni in Boliva..both truly amazing!

Teach, Learn, Share

We can teach an extensive knowledge of the English language, (good and bad!), juggling skills (poor to average), and excellent cooking technique!
We hope to learn Spanish more fluently, where the best bars are and whatever our host's loves are we will throw ourselves into and give it a go.
