Mi próximo destino:Svalbard and Jan Mayen Islands Ver todos
Hi, my name is Josh and I'm from the Falkland Islands. I currently work as tour guide in the Falklands. A few years ago I began a tour company with two friends in the Falklands and we offer wildlife/historical tours by 4x4 vehicles to remote locations. Prior to setting up the business, I was studying in London for my history Masters degree at the London School of Economics.
Travelling is my passion and I can never stay static for too long! I love to volunteer while travelling and think it is one of the best ways to get to know a country and its people. I have previously volunteered through WorkAway on a
number of occasions, including a ranch in Southern California, teaching in Poland and sheep farming in Iceland. On every occasion I have had an awesome time with so many good memories so I can't wait to start a new volunteer adventure!
I have lived the majority of my life in the Falkland Islands, but have also lived in Australia, Argentina and England. I have been lucky enough to travel across the globe on a number of occasions including to North and South America, Europe and Africa. Last year I traveled round Europe and Australia and later this year I am moving to Canada on a working holiday visa.
I have had a number of volunteer experiences over the past few years including working with animals in the Falklands and South Africa, and have also volunteered farming in the US and Iceland and teaching kids in Zambia and Poland.
I have a wide variety of experiences and skills from working and my hobbies, including cooking, construction experience and farming (gardening, animal care and some experience with horses). I also have worked in the service industry, as a business development officer and a variety of manual labour based jobs.
Once I finish tour guiding in the Falklands later this year I hope to be out travelling and volunteering across the world again so please don't hesitate to contact me or ask any questions.
