  • Description

    Hello. My name is Nancy. I’m from Australia with Italian background. I’ve just turned 43 and decided this year would be the year to travel Asia and Europe but not to do the tourist attractions but to become one of the locals. To volunteer whatever skills I have to help the locals with anything and everything! I want to learn the local traditions and the language and experience things you would never experience just as a tourist. I want to give back whatever I can to help people.
