Who are your hosts?
We are a young couple from Australia and Scotland that have built our home in rural Newfoundland. We spend our summers in Trinity East, and our winters playing on snowy hills.
After completing her degree in Social History, and finishing Law School in Scotland, she dedicated herself to researching and understanding all things Newfoundland. Her favourite topics include plants and wildlife, root-cellars, baking, and social change.
Martha also spends her time working on promoting budget travel within Newfoundland and Labrador in collaboration with HI Canada- Atlantic Region and has been a Board Member of the Legendary Coasts of Eastern Newfoundland since November 2015.
Joining the hostel team in 2015 as the General Manger, Gavin got straight to work in helping run, and further develop the Hostel.
With a background in teaching and coaching, Gavin became the perfect mentor for the hostel’s volunteers, and has helped form a hard-working team in both 2015 and 2016.
In the winter Gavin works for the Snow School at Marble Mountain, promoting healthy and active lifestyles as a snowboard and ski instructor.
Work aside, Martha and Gavin spend much of their time cooking, eating, watching Netflix, and enjoying a beer at the end of the day. But they also think whales, icebergs, and wild berries are pretty good.
