We are a couple in our 30's from the U.S. We are passionate about living abroad and experiencing other cultures.
We speak the following languages:
English (Native Speaker)
Spanish (Native Speaker)
We hold dual citizenship in the U.S. and Mexico.
We are vegetarian, we don't smoke (anything), we are not into partying. We love hiking, meditation, yoga, surfing, swimming, reading, and we love pets!!!
We are respectful to other homes, especially because we built our own house in 2016 and we know how much love goes into creating a home.
We are handy with repairs (not electrical nor plumbing), we don't mind doing housework, we like to live in a tidy space, and we love gardening (vegetables, flowers, our dream would be to look after a farm).
We have managed a hotel on the Oregon Coast and in the summers we occasionally manage an Airbnb on the Columbia River.
We both work online from home, Gabby is an English teacher, she has been doing this for the past 6 years and Carlos has been running his family business since 2010 (Interpretation and translation with over 72 languages).
We prefer stays 2-weeks or longer, and reliable wifi connection, or decent cell service so we can set up our own hotspot (we love cats, dogs, and horses).
Our schedule is very flexible, we don't expect compensation, we are happy to split/pay for utilities/internet, and we will bring our own bedding.
A little more about us:
Together we have traveled to over 35 countries. We have lived long term in Hong Kong, France, Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam, Bali, Brazil, and Mexico.
We love working out and going on runs, Carlos did his first half Iron Man in 2019 (looking forward to doing it again).
We were both student-athletes, and Gaby is currently pursuing her online masters in Business Admin with a focus on HR.
We met at a food cart in Portland in 2014 and have been happily traveling together since.
We enjoy volunteering with environmental organizations and have served on a couple of boards.
In the past, we've been lucky enough to take care of dogs, cats, turtles, horses, and a snake.
Looking forward to meeting you!
Gabby and Carlos
