unterwegs auf Reisen
I'm so happy that you've found my profile!
I'm Amanda and I'm from a smaller city in Sweden, but I've been travelling the world and done many Workaways along the way for several years before the pandemic started. After having been in lockdown in New Zealand for some time, I finally managed to find a flight home to Sweden last year. I moved outside of Stockholm to live with my boyfriend and ever since that, I've been trying to isolate and stay safe while studying and working from home. However, I feel like it might soon be time again to start to go on more local adventures in Sweden - something I actually was thinking about doing even before the pandemic!
Travelling, especially by train, is a big passion of mine and I did my first Workaway five years ago on a farm in Switzerland. It was truly amazing, two of the best weeks in my life! I have also been volunteering many more times through Workaway, as well as at a Swedish music festival and the Ice Hockey World Championship in Copenhagen – all incredible experiences. I love exploring new places and meeting new people. It's such a pleasure to be invited to someone's home and to learn about their culture/family/projects, it really broadens one's horizons and might even give you friends for life.
I've lived and worked abroad, mainly in Canada and Australia, but my favourite country is by far New Zealand where I've been twice already and could absolutely see myself returning to. If you're a nature lover, New Zealand is the perfect place to visit (and also if you like Lord of the Rings!). I prefer smaller villages and the calm rather than the busy city life. A beautiful view will make my whole day, I don't need much more!
However, I'm also really into animals (especially dogs) and would love to one day have a small house in the countryside where I can have a few dogs and at least two goats. Some other things in life that I enjoy are taking walks, listening to music, singing, baking, going to the gym, learning to play the guitar/piano, playing floorball, watching ice hockey, reading books, playing board games and spending time with my family.
I have previous experience as a housekeeper, front desk agent, aupair, pet sitter, house sitter, deli associate, barista and customer service representative - just to mention a few. Today I'm working with social media and I have also had my own travel website, but at the moment it's not active due to the pandemic. I'm pretty curious and eager to learn new things, but I also love to explore new areas and would be very happy if I had time to do so when staying with you!
I hope to hear from you and feel free to ask me any questions [in Swedish or English] you might have. Take care and stay safe!
