  • Description

    Hello! My name is Sofia and I am an avid backpacker who is passionate about responsible and sustainable tourism. I'm the owner of a small start up company called No Fixed Addresses that aims to promote small and locally owned hotels and tour operators as opposed to corporate options.

    I'm hopeful that one day we will see a tourism industry that values local people over profit, and I'm motivated to educate travelers on how they can have a positive impact on their journeys by putting their money back into small economies and traveling sustainably.

    I'm happiest when surrounded by nature and when nothing more than my backpack in tow. I'm an outgoing person who is very curious at heart. I'm open-minded and always interested in learning from others.

    Hey! My name is Caroline. I love to travel and always seek to leave places and people better than I found them. I crave adventure and genuine human connection. I am curious, goofy and compassionate. Long hikes, good music and interesting foods make my heart sing.

    I am passionate about ecological restoration and protection. I am motivated to preserve and protect our beautiful planet through sustainable agriculture and conservation methods.

  • More details about your skills

    We have both had extensive experience teaching English as a second language. Caroline is a certified TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) instructor. Sofia has experience volunteering to teach English as a second language to adult learners. We both feel comfortable teaching English in 1-on-1 and group setting and have worked with all age groups. If possible, we would love to do a language exchange! Sofia is almost fluent in Spanish and Caroline is catching on quick! So a situation where we would have the opportunity to sharpen our language skills would be fantastic.

    Caroline has skills in animal husbandry and small scale agriculture. She loves getting her hands dirty and would be thrilled to help with any kind of plant or animal care she can.

    We also both love to cook. Caroline has had experience working as a cook in professional kitchens and Sofia has spent many years working in restaurants as well. We are happy to help prepare meals for small or large groups.


    Sofia has spent the past three years working in the International Development field for an international aid organization where she served as the youth programming coordinator. She is passionate about development work, involving young people in decision making, and creating opportunities for youth in development. She also designed a website and runs a blog that focuses on ethical travel, specifically on how travelers can put their tourism dollars back into local economies.
