About Us


Our backgrounds are not that different.

If you’re on this page you’re here because you want a little of what we are doing and you’re curious to see if our type of lifestyle choice would be something you can do, you’re already entertaining the thought just by being here.

We are a New Zealand and Russian couple who have managed to blur the lines between working and having a travelling lifestyle that gives us what we consider the best of both worlds.

Elena still works in the travel sector and Wayne divides his time between commercial trade sales and developing this site.

As we are not people who live it up in fancy hotels we are able to afford more from our travels. We like the idea of volunteering and belong to an on-line community  called couchsurfing which gives us the luxury of meeting new friends and mixing it with locals as we travel. 

So if we are working you probably are wondering how we plan to travel?

Our goal is simple, we’ve discovered a place that will give us the freedom to build our dream and still allow us to travel (even more than we currently do) The Santo Project is that Dream. To follow our journey you’ll need to become a member of our site, it’s simple and it’s free.

A lot of people had asked how we met, the answer to that is to read all blogs on our site about Russia.

From 1998 – 2004 we ran our own internet dating business that had the largest database in Australasia of Russian and Eastern European Ladies. in November of 2001 a film company asked us to help them make a documentary about our business. Here is that Documentary….
