I would like to see a large portion of Central & South America over the course of a year. I'm looking for a male or female (strictly platonic) that loves to travel and enjoys the journey more than the destination. I'm interested in work-exchange at either hostels or farms while traveling.
My list of concerns in order of priority are safety, fruit, and fun. I have many ideas of how I'd like to see these beautiful places and people and what fruits I want to try, but it's all up in the air right now and I'm open to ideas. Hitchhiking, public transportation, purchasing a cheap car and splitting gas, flying, etc.
I am currently residing on the island of Maui and have no concrete plans of when I'd like to leave or when I'd like to begin my adventures in Latin America. With three months WWOOF experience I can say it is extremely difficult to find a 811-friendly host in Hawaii that doesn't see $'signs when you're ingesting fruit. I have $4,000 saved, although that might not be enough. Is there anybody out there in the 811 community that would give something like this serious thought? I'd love to hear from you. Please reply with any comments, suggestions, or genuine interest. If you'd like to contact me directly e-mail is the best choice. [firstname.lastname@example.org]
