  • Description

    We are friends who have travelled several times in Central and South America. We love the atmosphere and the people in Latin America.
    Paula used to be a teacher in physics and chemistry, and is now working as a house painter.
    Ellen used to be a speech therapist (language/voice/hearing) and loves to work with people.
    In 2017 we volunteered in Pereira, Colombia. We love to travel, but we also like to do something in the countries we visit. In 2018 we stayed for two weeks in San Augustin, where we built a bamboo shower cabin in a hostel.
    We might seem a bit 'old'..., but we are very healthy and of course we have a lot of experience in life :)
    Ellen is sometimes a smoker, but she can stop when necessary.
