unterwegs auf Reisen
After living in Britain for 20 years I packed up and set up to explore the world. My journey started in southern France where the mountain meets the sea. While I had a good time visiting museums and galleries, beaches and villages I soon realised without meeting with local people I'll always be just a tourist. That's when I decided to do volunteer work.
My Workaway experience so far has been very rewarding. I have met many remarkable people who are trying to make the best of their lives. It opens up a whole new world for me which is the ultimate purposes of my travel -- to live and work alongside many different people, to learn about different lifestyles, to experience different cultures, to exchange views and believes.
Graduated 20 years ago, I was in IT professionally. In my spare time I explored every corner of Britain. I used to visit all the remote Scottish islands, looking for sea birds, seals, eagles. With the COVID-19 pandemic, I become even more concerned about our planet as well as our own health. I would like to do more to protect the environment, learn more about sustainable farming, be close to nature and learn from nature. I like history, art, philosophie, photography, hiking... I enjoy creative work in general but I'm interested to learn all new skills, including new languages. I would be happy to teach you English or Manderain Chinese which is my mother tongue. I also love to cook and maybe share some good receipis together.
Some more information about me:
I am in my 40s. I have automatic driving licence but prefer not to drive on the wrong side of the road! I don't smoke. I love animals. I don't have any allergy that I've known of.
As I am in continuous travel, I do need to keep reasonably healthy, both body and mind :-) So fresh and healthy food are very much appreciated, so are proper tools, protection and some hygiene standards. I am very grateful to all the hosts who took good care of me in the past.
But the most important thing about me is I am open minded and I will try to adapt to your needs and preferences. After all I am here to experience and learn.
So I look forward to meeting you!
