  • Description

    ***Currently back in NZ***
    Back in my home country and hometown due to a little thing called a pandemic!

    I'm currently not volunteering but I am happy to meet and show overseas guests around the area :-)

    Need an amazing volunteer for your Workaway? Look no further!
    An adventurous and friendly traveller born and raised in New Zealand, discovering the world one country at a time.
    I previously worked at a charity helping wonderful dogs. After exploring a lot of Europe, I am exploring Asia, seeking new and unique adventures, expand my mind, learn about different and amazing cultures, communities, people, and experiences.
