  • Description

    I’m Louise, I’m from Sweden originally but have spent the past 3 years travelling and working abroad looking for experiences I can’t get back home.

    I’m energic, pro active and hard working. I’m used to physical work and don’t mind getting my hands dirty! I love the outdoors and everything that has to do with the ocean and beach. I’m a great animal lover and got a very extensive knowledge(and burning passion for) horses and riding in particular. I’m also a very social creature and thrives in social environments such as hostels and tour businesses.

    I love learning about new cultures and lifestyles and would love to experience the South American way of living and working. I’m also keen on improving my Spanish (currently very basic knowledge). I’m easy going and always up for cracking a joke.

  • What skills do you have?

    I’m a competent rider and comfortable around horses and all sorts of general care after growing up having horses and starting riding at age 6. I’ve competed in showjumping and worked as a riding instructor at a summer camp.

    I have excellent administrational skills after many years with hostel and office management, and extensive experience with customer service (which is something I personally enjoy working with).

    I’ve been told I got good teaching skills and I got a lot of patience, which has proved to be a neat combination.

    Good computer and social media skills.

    Experience with cleaning, gardening, baby sitting, farming and other tasks around homes and farms.
