Gwendolyn is a half German, half English bilingual secretary who worked a boring bank gig bank in London before the travel bug bit. She ran away to live with a family in Peru for 5 months, learning Spanish in the morning and working on a street children project in the afternoons. She then led adventure tours in Egypt, Morocco, Jordan and Eastern Europe for three and a half years. Coming home, she spent 5 years as a translator and interpreter in Berlin and eventually joined a bilingual kindergarten to teach English to children aged 2-6. She is currently on a year out adventuring.
