  • Description

    Hi there! My name is Kirsty i am 21 years old from England and i am seeking my next adventure. After a crazy year i have decided it is time to quit my job and book that one way flight and explore the world in new ways!

    I am a huge nature lover this means i am my happiest when i get to spend lots of time outdoors. One of the main reasons i would like to travel is to learn a range of new skills that revolve around being outdoors and spending time in nature with animals/plants.

    I am an incredibly social, adventurous and outgoing person. I have already travelled to a few exotic countries and would love to continue doing this!
    I am happy to learn new skills and i love to be challenged and pulled out of my comfort zone and i think a work away will give me this.

    I am ready to live a minimalist lifestyle!
