    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hey! We are a Canadian & Australian couple heading to South America in January for a four month journey, beginning in Colombia and departing from Bolivia. Both of us are eager for an authentic experience and for this reason we've chosen Workaway.

    I'm Matt, a graphic designer and photographer with more than two years experience in the industry, as well as nearly a year working in a hostel. I'm very passionate about documenting experiences with my camera and love the idea of helping with or staring design projects during my time in South America.

    I'm Lara, an environmental engineering student taking a break from my studies to work and travel. I'm really interested in experiencing local communities and understanding their interaction with their surrounding environment. I'm keen to get authentic view of South America and experience what it is really like to live in the places we travel to.
