  • Description

    Hi! We’re James & Mollie. We’re from the countryside near Manchester, England. We are travelling from Argentina to Colombia on a year long trip! We are both passionate about arts and music. We love hiking and being outdoors and are interested in ways of living sustainably.
    We are keen to learn from our volunteer hosts about alternative ways of living. We aren’t scared of hard work, and enjoy being active.
    We have signed up for workaway because we don’t want to just go on a holiday. We’re more interested in engaging with local artists and musicians, gaining skills in permaculture, making friends and getting our hands dirty working on projects!
    We are both learning Spanish and are very keen to immerse ourselves in the wide range of South American cultures! :)

  • What skills do you have?

    About us:
    I’m a creative, hands-on type of guy, I studied music and music technology at college and university and playing and listening to music still plays a huge part in my life. Day to day, I've worked as everything from advertising copy-writer to photographer to graphic designer to barman and would be happy to give you a hand with any or all of the above. I’m also 6'5'' and considers myself (fairly) fit and healthy, so if it's physical labour you need a hand with, I’m your man for that, too!

    I’m an artist and I work at an art gallery as a tour guide. I make sculptures and have lots of experience in organising and putting on exhibitions. I’m an enthusiastic and practical kind of person. I have experience in woodwork, ceramics, painting and decorating, graphic design, and working with children. I also have experience working in hospitality and I am passionate about cooking and good food.
