About the speakers
VOLUNTOURING IN SOUTH AMERICA
Arpit & Sakshi - Sakshi is an engineer who left her first job in a couple of months to pursue her childhood dream of learning classical ballet. Besides her love for travelling, she is also a trained yoga instructor.
Although he was working for over 5 years in investment banks and startups, Arpit knew that the thing that inspired him the most has always been nature. He loves mountains and can never get bored of biking there.
Arpit and Sakshi decided to go for their dream trip in South America in 2016 where they traveled for 8 months in Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia - teaching in a public school, hiking the Andes mountains, sandboarding in the Atacama desert, going to the depths of Amazons, living with indigenous people and many more adventures. They learnt how to manage travelling in a sustainable way and now that they are back, life is not the same. Their journey continues in Auroville where they are learning permaculture and trying to live a sustainable life.
