unterwegs auf Reisen
Hej, jeg hedder Hikaru, jeg kommer fra Japan.
I’m studying at Egmont Højskolen from this January to June, and I decided to remain next semester from August so I want to stay in Denmark in this summer. I like Danish people and Denmark atmospeher!
The reasons that I want to be a Workaway are following...
1. I‘m interested in Danish lifestyle and culture, and learn Danish language (now I try it! ). I’m looking for the next step when I go back to Japan and this studying abroad is so valuable experience so I want to absorb many things from many kinds of experiencing. In my opinion, differences between people and myself is so good opportunity to notice new ideas and know each other. And also sometimes we have the same aspects and it’s nice thing beyond any borders.
As a language, I want to have conversation with Danish people during my staying in Denmark and I’m thinking about to join like an internships during next semester.
2. I really like spending time and being relaxed in nature because nature have me notice many things , like we are all humankind and part of the nature, earth, and space... When I can feel these things, I can open my mind. I think there are many opportunities to touch and spend in nature during the workaway staying so I want to share and spend time like that with you hosts.
3.I’m interested in sustainable lifestyle and permacultural thinking. When I worked in the museum in Japan which located in so small island ; population is only less than 800 people and aging rate (aging=over 65 years old) is more than 50% and there are only about 30 children, I could realize that there is so beautiful nature and original elderly residences live together it, that means like cultivating rice, vegetables and fruits by themselves without earning money by them. (But I cannot learn that from them because my job was so busy...) That lifestyle looked so fit to the people as a creature which is a part of the nature and I feel it is better way to live more than aim to chase only profit or capital... Therefor, I want to experience the life with the thinking of Permaculture and know about it better.
According to those reasons, I really eager to be a workaway. However, in this COVID-19 situation, it makes me and you hosts difficult to make a decision so I want to share and know about it before you chose me as a workaway in your place.
Now, I took a test in May 27th and the result was negative. (In my højskolen, there are some disabilities who has a disease to make sure to pay great attention so I’m really careful to my behavior.)
I hope to see you :)
