    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    We have both just finished a 5 month backpacking trip through Asia and want to continue our journey in Latin America. We are going to Colombia first and want to use Work Away as a chance to meet locals and improve our Spanish skills while being involved in nature. I have strong interests in public health and environmental sustainability. Ben is interested in agriculture, software development, and martial arts.

    We both love exploring international cuisine and will eat just about anything! We are really excited to discover the traditional dishes of Colombia and the rest of Latin America. We can offer you flexibility, the desire to cook/practice Spanish, and are always up to play games.

    We have heard so many great things about Work Away and really want to participate. Since we backpacked for 5 straight months, we want to try a different type of abroad experience.
