Hello, my name is Wesley Otto!
I was a part time college student living in California before leaving to travel about 9 months ago. From working at a sheep farm in Iceland, a horse riding center in Whales, a permaculture project in the UK, to my current host in Switzerland taking care of horses and renovating an old home i truly dont plan on stopping. To many places to see, people to meet, and knowledge and experience to be gained.
At home i worked a compressed work week of 12 hour days to give me time for school. On my weekends i volunteered at a local wildlife rescue called Gold Country Wildlife Rescue helping with animal intakes and the day to day of caring and rehabbing wild animals.
I have traveled and volunteered through most of South East Asia. Working alongside local rice farmers in Bali, Sulfur minors of Mount Ijen in Java (Hardest thing ive ever done), fishermen in Malaysia, and did some work at a Wildlife sanctuary in Indonesia specializing in rescuing Sea Turtles.
As a child i was raised on a ranch in California. We boarding horses, hosted rodeos, raised beef cattle, swine, sheep, goats, turkeys and chickens and i showed multiple types of animals at fair.
I am no stranger to a hard days work, and i love being outside among animals and nature. When i travel i try and truly live like the locals, and the idea of actually LIVING with the locals going about daily activities, having dinner together and sharing stories and ideas sounds amazing. I truly try and make every aspect of my life into a learning experience, and think there would be no better place to learn, laugh, work, and grow then alongside likeminded people who are opening their homes to volunteers.
