About Me

Sorry I do not have a permanent house or much spare time at the moment, so cannot host, but keen to meet up and share advice/experiences/life///


Learning and growing


I am currently based in Port Vila, as a Water and Sanitation Hygiene Engineer for Red Cross Vanuatu. Pre Pam, this meant I went into the less established communities around Port Vila and help them gain access to proper sanitation and toilets. Post Pam, I am helping coordinate the re-instatement of rainwater harvesting systems and latrines on some of the most vulnerable and affected islands of Vanuatu. It is not a glamorous job, but helping out in this way... it suits me!

I love travelling, the shock of different cultures, the sensation of arriving in a new place and not knowing anything, maybe needing help, maybe not, being lost, yet found at the same time...

I can run pretty deep, but I also like sharing beers, silly conversations and laughs with new or old friends.

I am honest, fun and adventurous :) I love outdoor activities, eating well, looking after myself, the environment and others.

I am out to meet new people and have new experiences! Check out my blog to see what I have been up to... (slightly out of date blog)

Naci en Argentina pero vivi en Nueva Zelanda desde chicha.

Me gusta conocer nueva gente y ver como se vive en todos lados. Cualquier experiencia nueva me gusta. Fijensen mi blog para ver como viajo(en ingles, pero se ven fotos)
