unterwegs auf Reisen
Hello and greetings from Berlin!
My name is Fionnuala, and as my name suggests I have an Irish family, but I actually grew up in Cambridge, UK. I am a freelance writer based in Berlin. Up until the second wave I was working as a travel writer for hiking and mountain sports destinations. Currently, I am working on my first novel which is about an integration course in Berlin. Before going freelance I used to work for Olafur Eliasson's solar energy Not-for-Profit Little Sun.
I have had a few amazing Workaway experiences in my time, and I am keen to have more! I volunteered on a permaculture farm and brewery in Northern Italy, an off-grid artists residency in Andalucia, and a castle in Scotland. I was gardening, painting walls, bottling beer, de-slugging lettuces by hand, herding goats, feeding chickens and cooking (I love cooking vegetarian food)... as well as some other random odd jobs... I like to work outside and to get my hands dirty!
I did an exchange year in Melbourne, Australia, and I've been lucky enough to go on a couple of big trips around Asia, the Pacific, South America and a lot of smaller trips around Europe. Volunteering on two disaster relief projects (one in Peru and another in the Philippines) were two very special experiences. On these two projects, I gained some basic construction skills and a lot of great friends!
I studied philosophy and psychology, I love reading, writing, watching great films, swimming, yoga, cycling, playing the saxophone, dancing, and hiking.
I would like to grow my knowledge of sustainable living practices. I also love learning from people who have experienced life a little differently to me. If you are curious about anything else not mentioned, please feel free to ask.
