I'm Dani, a young spaniard (29 is still young isn't it?) from Madrid currently workawaying in the Lisbon area! Few month ago I was determined to make a change in his life, quitting my boring office job to start helping people for real.
I love outdoors, animals and cooking vegan food, as well as helping people in whatever way I possibly can. I'm also good at teaching (in a basic level) mathematics, English or Spanish. I really enjoy the international youth hostels atmosphere and always wanted to be one of the guys behind the desk! I do love feeling that my work is actually being helpful to someone.
I'm not very artsy but I make my best effort to try new things! Currently I'm practising to overcome my lack of music skills learning how to play the Ukelele. I'm a big fan of photography and I'm always willing to learn new stuff about my camera!
So far with Workaway I've done all kind of tasks, first in a Mindfullnes association with an animal shelter, such as gardening, cleaning, cooking, constructing homemade structures in the nature and a massive geodesic dome (I'm so proud of it I shared a picture on my profile :D) and whatever came up that we needed to do in a retreat place, as well as fixing and creating new fences and houses in the animal shelter and petting animals (well, this was not a task but I loved to do it).
Secondly I helped at a hostel taking care of the breakfast, working at a bar, helping at reception and changing bed linen.
My biggest volunteering experience outside Workaway was as an intern volunteer in a highschool in Sweden for a year, doing everything I could: teaching, cooking, planning leisure time activities, gardening, painting...
I've also worked in small projects: festivals, animal sanctuaries and helping at the paralimpic games.
I love meeting new people on a daily basis and learn about their culture and background, and that's one of my best motivations to become a workawayer.
Feel free to contact me if you have any other question!

I'm thinking about being a workawayer for an indeterminate period of time, if we are both happy with each other I have no problem in staying for a long time, otherwise if you are looking for someone for a short time I may adapt as well if I have the means and the time! :)
Sometimes I get some mild reaction to cats or rabbits fur.
