I'm a 24 year old graduate originally from Warwickshire, UK although I spent 4 years living, studying and working in Leeds. In 2012 I spent 5 and a half months in Central and South America. I visited Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras and Costa Rica. As well as following the usual Gringo Trail, I worked on 3 voluntary projects: teaching in Merida, Mexico, doing some Conservation work on Utila, Honduras and helping out with English classes at my language school in Guatemala. I spent a long 18 months working hard in a secondary school so I could save for this trip, but when I wasn't working or dreaming about being on the other side of the world, I spent my time at festivals, listening to music, watching stand-up comedy and being silly.
