  • Description

    We are a couple planning to travel throughout south America for 1 year. We arrive in Argentina in January 2017. We are looking to combined our travels with work aways along the way, offering our time and hard work. In exchange we hope to gain new knowlegde and skills and improve our Spanish. We are paticulary intersted in organic and sustainable ways of life. Eating healthy and nurturing our bodies from the inside out is really important to us, we are mainly vegetarian but do enjoy eating fish. We are passionate about alternative health. Both quite spiritual but not religious.

    I have worked for 4 years with adults with mental health and learning disabilities. I love to cook, hike, run, cycle, yoga and meditation.
    In the past I volunteered in Thailand to set up a new business, including marketing ideas, controlling budgets and
    teaching English.
    In India i volunteered at the Mother Teresa Missionary for the homeless and mentally challenged. I have found both projects equally rewarding to both myself and the community.
