I am currently
My next destination:India View all
I am a young at heart 49 year old that is spending time exploring the world in all its beauty for over 6 years now.
I am very interested in alternative and community living, holistic therapies, natural healing, music, dance, spirituality, philosophy, anthropology, numerology and much much more. I have just competed my Reike level 1. I believe there is energy in every being and we are all connected :)
I am a trustworthy, hardworking and an enthusiastic person who really loves to help all areas of work, learn new things and experience different cultures of which I have been privileged to be a part of in many countries.
At home i live in a shared house of artists and musicians and am always helping out with whatever their current project is. I help with the upkeep of the house, chickens, dogs and cats.
I also had a full time job as a Strategic Account Manager (sales) which i was very sucessful in and gave me the opportunity retire early and travel :-)
Regarding my workaway experiences, I have worked at hostels before. My last two positions were at hostels in Guatemala ( the second hostel I came back for a second time) Here I did many things including reception, checking in, bar, restaurant and arranging tours.
Other volunteer positions include working
with a few charities including rescued big cats in Bolivia, bears in Cambodia elephants in Sri Lanka, teaching English and helping at a children support centre for the under 5 year olds.
I've also been a housekeeper where I cooked and cleaned and again looked after the guests. I have helped build an eco resort, mixing cement, mosaics, etc.
I also spent 6 weeks living at Finca Morpho in Costa Rica which is a small tight knit nomadic regenerative, educational, experimental, permaculture, intentional community which was a great experience.
All of these positions required a minimum commitment of month but many times I stayed longer.
I hope when you read my profile it will convince you that i am not afraid of hard work :-)
After travelling around South East Asia I ended my time there in Sri Lanka. I was lucky enough to live with a local family just outside Thissa, close to Yala park. Again learning about their culture, sharing, learning and helping them in every way I could.
Now back over travelling Central and south America and am currently in Guatemala where I have been now for over 10 months (I wish to stay longer :-) )
I'm looking for a new experience where I can help, learn, share, be a part of again :-)
All things in life interest me so if i am applying i promise to give you all my help and commitment for as long as i stay with you.
Laughter comes in the package as my friends always say i always have a smile and enthusiasm in everything i do
