My prior Workaway experiences have been with teaching English (in Colombia for 9 months) and in a hotel and a hostel. I really enjoy working with people, whether it be helping them learn English or making them welcome to a hotel.I love Latin America and so I recently spent a month in Quito studying Spanish, at an Intermediate level, so I can be of more use.
Definitely not a partier, drinker or smoker. Just looking to be involved with different communities and helping out where I can.
Being a more mature workaway, do not be concerned about my fitness as I look after myself and keep in shape. I'm very easy-going and adaptable.
If you're looking for someone mature, responsible and trustworthy, with no drama, then you've found her.

More details about your skills
Home-schooled my kids for 20 years, and have run several of my own businesses. I have a TEFL 180 hour certificate plus 9 months teaching experience in Colombia, from ages 8 to adult, in both a private Institute, public schools and a large company.
My own businesses included smale-scale farming (cattle, goats and chickens), educational bookstore, and commercial real estate. From these I have gained a wide range of skills such as basic carpentry, animal husbandry, gardening, marketing, relationship building, computer skills. Also love painting - walls/rooms.
Taken Intermediate Spanish but need to practice speaking and listening more!
What else ...
I'm very adaptable and easy going. However, I would like my own room as over the years I've recognised that while I enjoy being sociable I need my own space to recharge.
