I love nature and being and working outdoors, walking and swimming, especially in rivers and the sea. I also love food and cooking (I ran a small cafe kitchen in Turkey once), African music and dancing, photography, travelling and reading. And I am good at gardening!
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'm currently learning Quechua and want the opportunity to improve it. I am a single parent and my daughter has now left home.

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 - any picking or planting may have 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!
No. I happily eat anything and everything!
