Hey I’m Lauren! I’m from a small town in sunny (I wish) Scotland and took on my first solo travelling trip after graduating last year. My experience was way better than I could’ve imagined – meeting wonderful people, seeing amazing things, great experiences and even teaching weekly yoga! I couldn’t have done all this without Worldpackers, I’m so grateful I came across the website. I think everyone should get to experience travelling at some point in their lives – wherever and whatever it may be! My advice if you’re thinking about it is – don’t think too much! Just do, you won’t regret it.

Experiencia de viaje
I've travelled to the dominican republic, a lot around Spain, Berlin, Prague, France, New York, Egypt and Belfast. I've had some great experiences like riding on sand dunes, sightseeing, teaching and meeting new friends.
Summer 2018 I au paired for a month in Girona, where I taught a young boy and his family English. As the mother is a primary school teacher I also got the opportunity to help teach within the school which was fantastic. Overall, spending that amount of time in Spain helped to improve my Spanish.
I'm looking to meet new people, see some amazing places and learn new cultures through Worldpackers.
