  • Description

    Hello! My name is Alonso and I'm from Austin, Texas, U.S.A. I'm passionate about human connection (and learning about the many different ways that humans can live their lives on our one planet), ultrarunning, learning/teaching languages, writing/journaling, reading, traveling, exploring spirituality, veganism, and trying to improve my (limited) ukulele skills. Even if I don't have experience with a particular activity, I will do my best to help out as much as possible! I am so grateful that Workaway exists and I greatly appreciate all of the wonderful people who are hosts! :)
