Canadians, foodies, sports-enthusiasts, LGBTQ+. Bewitched by the travel bug, we vowed to explore each continent before starting a career. After graduating from the University of Victoria, we worked hard for a year to save for the potential trip of a lifetime. Figuring that a home-base would be best while travelling, we decided to research the best (and most cost-effective) ways to do this. In Canada, we played field hockey for UVic and other clubs which lead us to get connected with online international sports scouting boards. We happened to find a team in Germany looking for players and signed a year long contract. Now, in Hamburg, we are planning larger trips for every break and exploring Europe in increments with every free day we have. We would love to share with you how easy it can be to continue your passions abroad and use them to find employment and residential networks.
