I quit my job in April 2017 to go travelling in Latin America. I am from England and have always wanted to travel to this side of the world and to learn the language and local cultures.
I started my journey in Mexico and travelled down Central America and Colombia, Ecuador and Peru in South America.
I have now changed direction and started my journey in India!
I am learning Spanish. I practice yoga, meditation and eat a vegan diet. I love good food and cooking! I like all forms of exercise, especially being out riding a bicycle! And love walking and hiking and feel the best being out in nature.
I consider myself as spiritual rather than religious and I am on a continuous path of self development. I pracitce some Ayurvedic systems and would love to delve deeper into it.
I am interested in medicinal plants and holistic health.
I am really interested in eco/permaculture/sustainability projects. I am interested in anything organic and try to source all of my food/products organically and locally.
I was a business manager in a primary school for the last 10 years and I am hoping to be inspired to do something totally different while I'm on my journey - so would love to get as much experience/be exposed to as many things as possible.
I am a really hard worker and would love the opportunity to get these experiences!
I love a good/deep conversation and to meet new people from around the world and to be exposed to local cultures.

Before travelling I was a Business Manager for 10 years, my professional skills are; finance, health and safety, administration, organisation, taking care of premises and managing personnel.
I am used to using my own initiative and managing my own time.
I get on with everyone and I am very adaptable.
I am a perfectionist when it comes to whatever I am doing, I like things to be just right, I have high standards, and I have a good eye for detail.
I have lived on my own for 10 years And I am self sufficient so can put my hand to general maintenance and have the ability to paint etc.
I work fast and like to put everything I have into what I am doing.
English, learning Spanish
I am a very fast learner and hard worker. If I volunteer for you I would like you to benefit from me being with you. For me it is the same as having a paid job. I am a very loyal and trustworthy person.
