A woman who is looking for new experience and adventure in new countries, with new people and new culture. Learning is the main word during my trips! Working with people and for people is my main purpose, cause I believe this kind of interaction makes us better human beings in a World which is claiming (sometimes in silence, sometimes yelliing) for help, transformation, evolution. Until now I've been to 33 countries through South America, Europe and Southeast Asia, but as quality is more important than quantity, I like travelling slowly so I have time to feel the place.

I would recommend to accept her, she’s very independent and during her stay in my hostel, she always offer a help and ready for an action, i hope i wouldn’t disappoint her as i informed before i accepted her that there’re not so many things to do in my hostel.
Thank you so much for dropped by and all the help offered



Renata was a nice person and I was hoping she'd make a great addition to the team! I was really disappointed that she said she was bored after five days and wanted to leave...when there were tons of exciting projects to work on. It was disheartening but then I realized that I think it had to do with the friend she invited on her second day, who kept wanting to stay around but we couldn't take on another volunteer which he seemed to blame on me. They ended up leaving together.

I had a nice time in Yogya.
The hostel is very clean and comfortable. There were no guests so I had plenty of time to explore the city and surroundings.
Tanaka showed me local places to eat well and cheap, took me to some waterfalls on the mountains.



The beach is amazing!!!!!! Clean water, nice shades to chill.
The problem is the lack of infrastructure, high prices for food and to move around the island.
The tasks are easy. They're starting the business and there are lots of opportunities there.
Erin was really nice in teaching me how to make some good cocktails!!!
the private bungalow was nice as well.
However, while I was there, there were no guests so I felt bored (that's why I left earlier than planned).... 
all the best to you!
