  • Description

    Hi, I'm Lizzy an adventurous 32 year old Australian woman. I've been hitchhiking & living on sail boats for the last 6 months and sailed from Senegal to Panama and made my way over land to Costa Rica. I’ve only got a few weeks left before I have to leave Central America and I’d LOVE to spend it volunteering in Costa Rica, Panama &/or Nicaragua with a beautiful community of people while I get back in touch with the earth after many months at sea.

    Although I have been signed up with Workaway for a number of years, I've not often gotten around to staying with hosts through this site. I have however participated in a number of other similar style work or cultural exchanges around the world.

    Over the past 10 years or so I have travelled extensively, lived across 5 continents and in more recent years I have worked as a scuba dive instructor, then English/kindergarten teacher and a travel writer for a Singaporean magazine.

    Everywhere that I’ve lived, I’ve always volunteered. Either in homeless shelters, or charities for the homeless or people in need, at conscious events or at community, women’s or arts centers.

    I am excited to learn and try new things. I am an easy going, enthusiastic, hardworking and passionate person. I look forward to getting involved in personal and/or community projects, making connections with people and contributing in the best way I can using skills I have already developed or ones I hope to acquire.

    Thanks for reading and hope to be smiling with you soon! 😊
