About me

... I am an AVID nature lover and want to explore Costa Rica!... I find this kind of exchange a wonderful opportunity to see new places, cultures and meet new people, acquire new skills and hone the ones I have. I have a ´Buddhist´outlook on the world---believing in Kindness and Compassion for all living things, and believe in the power of a smile and a good laugh. I have a number of skills which I think will be useful to share with others. I love working in a team, and profoundly believe that EVERYTHING we do , no matter what it is, needs to be done with LOVE, or what´s the point! smile
