Adam es un gran chico, con un gran corazón. Lo recomendamos totalmente, solo le falta mejorar un poco su español.

The hostel is an amazing building and the owner is a funny guy. An intermediate/high level of Spanish is required, as my low-intermediate made life a little difficult at times. The role is a mixed bag, as you'll be on your own and in charge during the shift running the reception with check-ins and outs, cleaning the building, handling deliveries and various duties during the weekend parties. I struggled sleeping due to the constant buzz of the busy hostel life, so my experience wasn't absolutely golden. But I can categorically say that Mauro makes the best asado I've ever eaten.

Easily two of the happiest weeks of my trip so far. Sole wants the absolute best for her students, and to do that she allows you to work to your strengths. She gives excellent guidance and preparation with regards the students and their levels, but also the freedom to adapt the classes to your own interests and abilities. As for the students, I loved every single class. Genuinely awesome people... every single one. I learnt so much about Bahia, Argentina and the Argentinean culture. Such a happy experience, which I would recommend to anyone coming to Argentina.

How I massively improved my Spanish volunteering in Argentina

Travelling for nearly 20 years on and off, I've lived in and seen some incredible places. 40 countries and 233 cities but I'm hungry for more, and I'd love to share and learn from all of you. Every day I learn something new about what it takes to be a digital nomad. I don't have all the answers, but if you have any questions then I'd be happy to try and help.

Background

Education

A lifelong student of the English language, I also studied Theatre Studies, Classical Civilisation and Musical Engineering.

In recent years I devoted myself to studying SEO, digital marketing and content creation.

Work Experience

I've worked in a variety of industries, with the longest stint working in a High School.

I've also been a truck driver, worked in a warehouse, construction, produced photography campaigns for a major camera company, and now I run my own Virtual Assistant business.

Travel Experience

I first started travelling nearly 20 years ago and had the opportunity to live in some amazing places around the world.

Nearly 5 years in South America (over multiple visits), spending a few months in the Pacific Islands, hitchhiking around Israel and climbing the highest mountains in The Alps. Those are some of my best memories.

My first travel book (Bag Up! Backpacking around Israel without a plan) was released in late 2018 and became an Amazon #1 Bestseller. I'm currently working on the follow-up.

I've seen a lot, but there's still SO MUCH more to see and experience.
