unterwegs auf Reisen
Hi, I'm Emrys from Australia!
I'm travelling the world to collect experiences, to learn from other cultures and people, and to contribute as much as I can along the way. I joined Workaway because I feel it will give me the most unique and fulfilling experiences along my journey. My goal is to travel the world, but not be a tourist. Ultimately, finding my true calling in this crazy beautiful thing we call life.
Germany has been my second home for the last year. Over that time I have learned a great deal about the language and way of life. In May, I will travel to Romania. I have always been very interested in spending time there and exploring the beautiful region. I hope to find a host who can teach me about the area.
Below are a few examples of particular skills I have, and ways I can contribute :)
< HOSTEL MANAGEMENT >
While creating valuable friendships with people from all corners of the globe, I have contributed my efforts towards many hostel management roles and now have a solid knowledge of the hostel industry. I truly love working in hostels and guesthouses alike!
Over the past four years, I have volunteered at 4 hostels, starting with The Captain Cook Hostel in Sydney, where I volunteered for 18 months. I have since volunteered at Buffalo Backpackers in Prishtina Kosovo, Tiberius Hostel in Israel, and Hostel In Ramallah in Palestine. I've been responsible for tasks such as greeting and checking guests in and out, general housekeeping, preparing morning/evening meals, promoting activities, and more!
Darren Woods, the Captain Cook hostel owner, is happy to personally provide hosts with a character reference via his email firstname.lastname@example.org.
< COOKING & FOOD PREPARATION >
Ever since I was a child, I have been passionate about cooking. I can cook a large range of cuisines including Indian, Asian, Italian, Mexican, and various vegetarian/vegan dishes. I also worked at John Bull Pub & Restaurant in Lund Sweden as a part-time chef for a number of months, before taking over the role of Bar Manager.
< CLEANING >
I worked as a professional cleaner in Queensland Australia for 12 months. I was responsible for cleaning the interior of residential homes before a sale of a property or the beginning of a new lease. Also, I have as been a hostel cleaner at the hostels mentioned above. So if something needs cleaning, I'm your guy!
< GARDENING & BUILDING >
Over the years I have been involved in many building and gardening projects. I can assist with bricklaying, carpentry, landscaping, and really anything building and gardening-related. I enjoy being outside creating things, and the satisfaction it gives you :)
< ENGLISH TEACHING >
I'm also a qualified TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) teacher with a high level of knowledge of the English language. It is my pleasure to help anyone who wants to improve their verbal and written English skills.
< PHOTOGRAPHY & SOCIAL MEDIA >
I am a novice light painter/photographer who likes to run free light painting workshops and events. Light painting is the art of capturing different light sources on a long exposure shot. Like steel wool photography, fiber optic portraits, and much more. I can share with you everything I know about creating beautiful light painting images!
Wherever I travel, I bring with me all my light painting tools and ideas. I'm always searching for the next creation! You can see some of my light painting photography here on my profile gallery and on my website dreamstreetportraits.com. While building my light painting project, I have learned a lot about social media and website development. I would be happy to help with growing or rebuilding your brand.
Mehr Infos zu meinen Sprachinteressen
Dieser Workawayer gibt an, dass er/sie dir gern seine/ihre Sprache(n) beibringen oder selbst eine neue Sprache lernen würde. Bitte wende dich direkt an ihn/sie, um Einzelheiten zu besprechen.
My main passions are cooking, photography, writing, science, nature, and of course travel. I enjoy keeping up with scientific discoveries, especially anything related to AI, astrology, and physics. I'm a sociable, upbeat, adventure seeker! I enjoy living in highly sociable communal atmospheres. I'm a minimalist, only keeping possessions that add value to my life.
I pride myself on my overly optimistic relaxed demeanor. I feel there is always a silver lining to every cloud! What I value most by far are my friendships, and the unbelievable experiences we've shared. I know that happiness and satisfaction are easy to find if you look in the right places.
