  • Description

    I'm from Hong Kong and I've lived in the UK for the last 14 years, to complicate things I was actually born in Canada. I've spent the last 3 years working as a Civil Engineering designing High Speed Railways but I've decided to pack my bags and go on an adventure in Latin America until money runs out!

    I chose to go to Latin America because my main aim is to improve my Spanish and of course explore different countries. In terms of work, I'm flexible in what I can do, I have experience in volunteering in a hostal reception, working in a bar, doing construction projects in a farm all in Spanish speaking countires. I also have a TEFL english teaching qualification.

    I absolutely love the outdoors and seeing wildlife. I love all sorts of outdoor activities, surfing and scuba diving is my absolute favorite! I look forward to meeting new people and sharing stories on this adventure!
