I am a young traveller, passionate about the world, and exploring new places, new cultures and new languages. I studied Science in college and started a master in neurobiology. I have been curious about the world from a young age, so I would be very excited to visit new cities in Brazil. When I turned 19, I moved to the United States, and it was such a great experience, I travelled all over the country, hanging from New York City to Miami, and then from California to Alaska. After graduating from College I decided to go to New Zealand, and that is where I am now.... I intend to go to Asia and Europe after finishing exploring it here

Avalon Resort

Jonatas is smart, he works hard and is very friendly. It was a pleasure to have Jonatas around, he was great with other helpers and did well at office work, housekeeping and garden work. We would have loved to have him longer but are very thankful he stayed at our resort for a month!
Looking forward to see you again Jonatas and good luck on your next travels!


  • Responsability
  • Commitment

Due to his friend's sickness, he had to leave our backpackers after 2 weeks commitment.
We welcome back Jonatas anytime his friends get better.
Safe Travels!!.

Not enough words to describe how great this experience was. We were 3 volunteers, a north american couple plus a Brazilian (me). The work was very easy, and exactly as agreed beforehand. In my opinion what stands out about this resort is the great atmosphere along with lovely surrounding nature . Willen and Bety are great and very respectful. Bety had me over for dinner a few times and she has a great personality she's very welcoming, taking me to beautiful walks around Kerikeri. Willen is a very unique guy, funny and friendly, he took me to eat out in a nice restaurant in town.. THANK YOU



I was very happy working at Backpackers Central, Lark and Jade are friendly people and they will help you out with any problem you have. I spent around 2 weeks, and unfortunately I had to leave early due to personal problems, but I recommend this place for any backpacker travelling in NZ. Thanks Jade and Lark for being very welcoming.
