  • Description

    We are interested in organic and sustainable way of life. Eating healthy and nurturing our bodies from the inside out is really important to us, we are mainly vegetarian but do sometimes eat fish. We are passionate about alternative health. Both quite spiritual but not religious. We love to be outdoors, hiking, cycling and general appreciating nature.
    During our last 18 month trip in South America, we stayed with many workaway hosts, we loved the experience and looking forward to the experience in India.

    I recently served at a Vipassana meditation centre, my role was head chef. With the help of the other volunteers we cooked healthy vegan food for 250 people every day. This was an amazing experience for me.

    I have worked for approx 7 years with adults with mental health and learning disabilities, supporting them to live as independently as possible and achieve their dreams and goals. This past year I have worked at a specialist holiday company to lead holidays for vulnerable adults to visit new destinations both in UK and worldwide. For now its low season for my job, my opportunity to travel before I return to work in April.

    I love to cook, hike, cycle, yoga and meditation.
    In the past I volunteered in Kolkata at the Mother Teresa Missionary for the homeless and those in need. I found this experience rewarding to both myself and the community.
