Australien, Portugal, Schweden
01.11.2020 - 01.08.2021
unterwegs auf Reisen
My name is Victoria. I'm 22 years old. I finished my Bachelor Biology (specialized in animal behaviour) in April 2020 and now, I am taking a gap year. I planned to travel to Australia in November 2020, but due to corona this will very likely be impossible. Therefore, I decided to go to Sweden this winter and I will see if Australia will be an opportunity somewhere in April 2021. If not, I will continue traveling in Europe in general (maybe Portugal).
* Sweden *
I travelled to Sweden twice before and I just cannot get enough of this country and its nature. I've only travelled to Sweden during summer, so I am very curious about Sweden during winter time :-) Next to helping where possible, I'd like to improve my Swedish language skills, I would love to go ice skating and snowboarding in Sweden and seeing the northern lights would be magical. This is however not a must, a "must" for me is just being at an amazing host(family) during the cold and dark winter months.
- I am currently looking for a host in Swedish Lapland for the months November and December -
* Portugal, 2021*
I had the wish to go to Portugal since I was, I think, about ten years old. I just appealed to me. I love the ocean and would like nothing more than to spend every day at the ocean. I know this since I've been to Australia five years ago, where I also took five surf lessons (and then ended up in a hospital because a bluebottle jellyfish stung me badly :-) ). I fell in love with surfing and therefore decided to join a three month surf academy in Australia in November 2020, but as Australia will not open until next year, all my travel plans were canceled and I am looking now for a place where I can work and surf in Portugal! And when possible, I would also love to learn some Portugues.
* About me *
I'm a person with a lot of interests. I love the nature and being outside. I love listening to and making
music, doing sports (all kinds of board-sports, yoga, hiking), reading, writing, taking pictures and learning new languages. Besides, I love animals and I am very interested in animal behaviour. Furthermore, I care about our planet and I try to let people live in a more sustainable way by inspiring them and with lots of positivity.
* Work *
I'd like to do many kinds of work. I have already done gardening, painting, cleaning and cooking at workaway-stays in Sweden and Australia. Working with animals would be amazing, as would working with tourists be, but I'd also like to do some physically exhausting work. I am very eager to learn and always want to improve my skills and learn new things, no matter what kind of work it is. But most of all: I just want to meet nice people and to help them wherever I can.
I'm a very motivated, passionate worker. I really want to learn new things and improve my skills. I am patient, I'm good at working with other people but I'm also good at working independently. I know a lot about nature and animal behaviour, but there is always room to learn more.
People describe me as enthusiastic, empathic, passionate, kind and reliable, bringing positivity and a good talker.
Swedish: Gute Kenntnisse
