Both Cecilia and Sebastian is such a wonderful couple who helped us a lot with our contents (both photography and videography). Their editing skills are excellent and they provided us with wonderful contents throughout their stays with us. Would totally recommend them both to other hosts!

This was an excellent experience! The people are very kind and friendly. The beach is beautiful. There were other volunteers sharing the room with us and we made friends with them, too. The tasks are ok and they gave us freedom to use our time as long as we took the pictures and video they needed. We felt really comfortable and had plenty of time to enjoy the beach and the island. We also went on some excursions with them, they provided kayak, snorkeling masks, and bicycles. We totally recommend this place to anyone who enjoys a very tranquil life (there're no other shops or places around!)

Background

Education

I'm a lawyer in Argentina, but since I'm traveling the world I've learnt many skills. Please take a look at my work experience below :)

Work Experience

I have working experience in Argentina, US, Spain, and Cambodia. I've also volunteered in Perú, Argentina, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwán, Japan, and South Korea. So I'm very used to multicultural working environments and I love it!

Find below a summary of my work experience divided by tasks:

- Teaching English:
I have experience giving private lessons to teenagers and preparing them to sit for exams. I have also one volunteering experience in Peru teaching English to small kids for 2 months.

- Social Media:
Since I started traveling with my partner in April 2016, we've been sharing our experiences in our blog and social media with increasing success (we have over 22,000 followers in Instagram only). We've become experts in storytelling and engaging people.

- Film/Video making/Photos:
We have a YouTube channel where we share our travel experiences. We have a lot of experience shooting and editing video (Premier). We also know the basics of photography and photo editing (Photoshop, Lightroom).

- Web development/SEO:
Thanks to our blog we have learnt the basics of web development and optimization. We know how to create and maintain websites using WordPress.

- Content writing:
We have plenty of experience doing this in our blog and also for other travel websites.

- Hotel Management:
I have managed a guesthouse in Cambodia for 3 months. My tasks included: managing the staff, paying salaries, manage the bookings, do the check-in/check out for customers, manage complaints, do the accounting, manage the stock for the kitchen and bar, supervise repairs.

- Bartender/Cleaning/Waitress:
I have worked for 3 month in a hotel doing these tasks as well as billing and managing the stock.

- Administrative tasks:
Before traveling I've worked as a corporate lawyer in Argentina for 8 years, so I feel very confortable with any administrative kind of work.

- Pet care:
We've been petsitting in Asia for over two years now. We've experience with all kind of dogs, cats, and guinea pigs. We have experience with elder and diabetic pets.

Travel Experience

We're experienced travelers. We're traveling in Asia non stop since April 2016 (over 3 years now!) and we totally love it. In this trip we've been to Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia (including Borneo), Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, Brunei, Taiwán, Hong Kong, Macao, Japan, and South Korea.

Before this trip I went to Europe (Spain, Portugal, UK, and the Netherlands) and in America I've been to the US, Bahamas, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Uruguay, and my home country, Argentina.
