    Loving México! Keen to meet new people, share my skills and learn new things along the way!

  • Description

    An Aussie girl riding out the COVID wave, after two years in the UK. I am currently looking for volunteer roles in Mexico from January until March. I would love to experience the Carribbean & Pacific coasts, please get in touch if you need a hand with: gardening, delicious cooking, renovations, opening accommodation, hostel operations, guest services, reception, cleaning, painting, project assistance, DIY projects, travel sales & reservations

    Over Christmas 2020, I volunteered in Portugal, renovating a new hostel opening in the Algarve. Since then I have been traveling Central America.

    Cooking for people is one of my passions and I would love to learn everything there is to know about Central American cuisine, while improving my Spanish. I am an experienced tropical gardener, seeking adventure and experience. I would be so grateful to experience Central America with the insight of local knowledge.

    For ten years I've managed backpacker hostels in Cairns, Australia, as well as London & Edinburgh in the UK. I have a lot of hospitality work experience, including commercial cookery. What I love about backpacking and volunteering is the people, the stories and the sense of community. I have also been a guest services manager in a four star property in Edinburgh, Scotland.

    I would love to learn new skills, teach others what I already know and make some new friends along the way. I am a positive and genuine person with a good work ethic and drive towards environmentalism, peace and harmony.
