  • Beschreibung

    I love nature and being and working outdoors. I am very keen to help in gardening, permaculture and sustainability projects. I work hard and am flexible. love walking and swimming, especially in rivers and the sea. I also love food and cooking and I ran a small cafe kitchen in Turkey once. I’d be very happy to cook for groups of volunteers or the public. I also love photography so would be happy to take photos to add to your website or profile.

    I have worked and travelled in South America for nine months and in Central America for three months so beginning to feel a little bit familiar with this vast continent!

    In England I work as a teacher trainer in a field of education known in the U.K. as "global learning". It is all the things I am passionate about like human rights, equality, social justice, sustainable development etc. I am also a qualified TEFL teacher (Teacher of English as a Foreign Language) and have taught for many many years. I am fluent in Spanish after living in Madrid for nearly 7 years and I also speak Turkish and French. I have been learning Quechua for several months and want the opportunity to improve it. I am a single parent and my daughter has now left home.

    I would very much like to be in a Workaway position where I could learn more Quechua and have the chance to practise it. At the moment I would like to brush up my Turkish as it’s getting very rusty!

  • Was noch ...

    All plans are slightly provisional at the moment of course due to the pandemic and borders being closed BUT...
    I would like to spend nearly three months in Bolivia (may need to quarantine on arrival) as I wish both to escape from a dreary winter lockdown in the U.K and also learn more Quechua. I love working on projects outdoors in nature. I like to be with children and young people and I would be happy to provide occasional childcare or babysitting for a family, although would prefer not to be doing this every day. I may be older than many volunteers but I am fit and very healthy and very young at heart! (the only thing I can't do is lift heavy loads due to a back issue - heavy digging or intensive planting may need to be mixed with other tasks). I can also provide help with tourists on reception in hotels and hostels and am happy to do general upkeep and cleaning too. Due to my back problems though I cannot make beds or hoover!
