Companion Ad:
Perhaps a companion helpxer/traveler would be good. I am currently in Bolivia seeking a volunteer position on my way to the coast of Brasil where i hope to sail to Trinidad with a boat whose captain I've been in touch with through crewbay.com . From there I will hopefully return to Europe on another boat - the Great Sea willing!

Next Destination(s):
Current location: Bolivia

Helper Description:
Soy un hombre de Escocia originalmente que tiene 45 aņos. A traves de los ultimos 10 aņos por la mayor parte del tiempo he estado trabajando voluntariamente en fincas/granjas ecologicas (normalmente a traves de la red wwoof o helpx), initialmente durante mas que un aņo en Irlanda, pues 7 aņos en Espaņa (4 en la Peninsula y 3 en las Islas Canarias). En la Isla de El Hierro tenia la oportunidad para cultivar mi propias huertas ecologicas (durante casi 2 aņos), vendiendo y comiendo lo que producia. Soy un musico y toco la trompeta, flauta Irlandesa, flauta dulce, didgeridoo y piano. Tambien tengo experiencia de navigar y en 2016 navigue de Gran Canaria hasta Trinidad (llegando 8 Abril). Desde entonces he ayudado con dos projectos en Trinidad ( http://www.wwoof-caribbean.org/host-list/24069-one-family-farms/ y http://www.helpx.net/host.asp?hostID=36683&network=9 ), tres en Colombia, tres en Ecuador y cinco en Peru.

En Escocia cuando era mas joven estudie las matematicas, hice investigaciones en informatica, trabaje como modelo de arte y toque la trompeta por la calle y en varias bandas en Dundee y Glasgow.


I am a 45-year-old man from Scotland originally. Over the last 10 years I have been mainly working voluntarily on organic farms and smallholdings (usually through the wwoof or helpx networks), initially for over a year in Ireland, then seven years in Spain - four years in mainland Spain and three years in the Canary Islands where, on the island of El Hierro I had the opportunity to cultivate my own organic vegetable gardens (over a period of almost two years), selling and eating what i produced. I am a musician and play the trumpet, tin-whistle, treble recorder didgeridoo and piano. I also have some sailing experience and in 2016 sailed from Gran Canaria to Trinidad (arriving 8th April 2016). Since then I have helped with two projects in Trinidad ( http://www.wwoof-caribbean.org/host-list/24069-one-family-farms/ and http://www.helpx.net/host.asp?hostID=36683&network=9 ), three in Colombia, three in Ecuador and five in Peru.
In Scotland when i was younger I studied mathematics, did computer research, worked as and art model, busked and played trumpet in a variety of bands in Dundee and Glasgow.
