I am currently
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! :)

I obtained a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

He also knows the surrounding area very well and is great at recommending fun things to do in
In his couple week's stay, Alonso was so much of a help around the property. He was always incredibly eager to learn and caught on quickly to every project we had. He was self-reliant and happy to explore on his own, but also enjoyed hanging out. He is open-minded,
