  • Description

    I am planning a trip beginning in Mexico down through the countries in Central America to finish In Colombia where i spent 7 months 2017-2018. At home in Scotland i have my own business working as a painter and decorator and have worked in the trade for over 12 years. Previously to decorating i worked in the hotel industry for 2 years working mainly as a desert maker/ waiter but also did a small amount of bar work. I have previous experience teaching English (in Colombia and Mexico) and also worked on the reception of a hostel in Medellin (not through workaday through a chance meeting with the manager) where my duties also included social media marketing. I enjoy working/ getting out instead of sitting around.
