I'm currently living my best life and 'finding myself' in Central America... I started my travels in the beginning of March and will be travelling until June and so far having the BEST time!
I consider myself to be a friendly, open-minded and creative person. I love painting, drawing and writing, and have recently spent the last month at a hostel in Tamarindo as their writer/blogger.
I'm a big people-person too - I grew up living overseas and moving around a lot, so travel is a big part of my life and I love meeting weird and wonderful people from all over the world. I've worked in customer-facing / relationship-building roles too, so if you need me behind a reception desk or looking after guests, I have some experience. I believe I'm a happy and energetic person, and (hopefully!) good fun to be around (that is, when I'm not hangry).
I can speak conversational Spanish.. it's still a little broken at times but getting a little better. I am also a floundering-intermediate surfer, a big foodie, and I do love a good boogie/groove!
