Hi, my name is Natalia and a 23 year old Polish-Canadian. I'm looking for someone who'd be interested in volunteering and/or traveling in South America sometime this year. Dates and locations are flexible =), I have some ideas but am pretty laid-back.

I know of some really cool and affordable volunteering opportunities and opportunities to learn Spanish, but would be open to just traveling if anyone is interested.
Thanks! Cheers,

Hey Natalia,
I'm an Aussie living in Santiago de Chile. I am looking to travel around South America early next year rather than this year, but if you are looking for a place to stay in Santiago for a few days I could help you out. I also work for a language school here in Santiago and could organise some spanish classes for you here if you wanted.
Good luck with it all!

I'm from the UK, just graduated studying German and Spanish and am looking at going to S.America at the start of next year to improve my Spanish (which isn't great). If you are still around maybe we would be in the same place at the same time.
I'm currently doing an online TEFL course so am looking to travel/volunteer and then teach.

Whereabouts are you both thinking of going? I looked at some of the STA tours, which look really good but are so expensive!
Also how did you get your job in Santiago Natalia? I'm a bit worried about arriving somewhere and no being able to find anything.

Im 20 and from the U.K I will be going to Costa Rica on the 2nd October and learning Spanish for 1 Months then working my way down to Panama to pick up a 5 day boat trip to Colombia so will arive ther around December.

I will be picking up a tour in Caracas in January going to through to Amazon, I will be ending up in Rio on the 4th March which is just in time to pick up the carnival :) after that I will be travelling around by my self.

It would be nice to find a travel buddy if this sounds like somthing you may want to do
