  • Description

    Hi, I'm Catriona....a travelling Scot looking for cultural exchanges!
    I am taking a sabbatical from work and travelling solo around the world. I've been to South America, New Zealand, Australia and currently in Vietnam.
    I'm 48 years old taking a break from my work in retail. I want to try new and different things to test myself, life begins at the end of your comfort zone!!
    I enjoy team work although I can work well on my own too. I am educated to degree level, a qualified nursery nurse and have the CELTA teaching qualification (120 hours).
    I have a "can do" attitude and will happily try or turn my hand to anything... I grew up on a farm so used to animals and hard work!
    I'm kind, caring and quite a happy go lucky person. I enjoy meeting people and listening to their story as well as helping people out and learning new skills both indoors and outside.
    I'd really love to learn about different cultures, as well as sharing skills and ideas. Thanks for reading!
