My next destination:Italy - from Aug 2022 until Aug 2022 View all
Hi! My name is James but call me Jamie. I am and have been traveling on and off (mostly on) since August of last year and am currently in England! I have had the privilege of going to some amazing places in the last year including the Caribbean, Peru, England, Italy, and Ecuador. I am currently in Italy and am planning on spending the next three months in Spain and Portugal. I prioritize the cultural human experiences that I have traveling as they have been the ones to have the biggest impact on me! My work experience includes having worked as a landscaper and gardener as well as at a soup kitchen and a dog shelter. I have also spent a lot of time working as a baby sitter and have done a lot of tutoring with kids.
Why I am traveling - A few years ago I realized I didn't like the direction I was going in. I took a (now final) break from university and I started traveling and thinking more. Traveling to new places to meet new people and have new experiences. And thinking, to learn from those people and experiences. I am super excited to meet you, work with you and learn from you!
I am currently traveling with my girlfriend Morgan. She is in the connected profiles section.
Thanks for reading my profile!

What else ...
I am very open to many different types of work and I am excited to learn more than anything so I don't really mind the type of work that I will be doing I just really like doing stuff. The only sort of requirement that I have is that I love working with people! I love people and socializing and I think that all of my best experiences regardless of location have been about the people and atmosphere that I am in.
