    Super Workawayer

  • Description

    I am a retired therapist/social worker from the US, currently living in Ecuador with the desire to experience more of this and other countries, as I embark on the adventure of a nomadic life. I love meeting new people from all over the world and sharing food and stories, cooking, cleaning, organizing, caring for animals, helping with guests. I love plants and caring for gardens, but am not able to do very heavy work any more. I love baking bread, even though I no longer eat wheat myself. I am responsible, enjoy keeping busy, and have a good sense of humor.
