unterwegs auf Reisen
I'd love to spend my 2 year permit volunteering with different hosts in different provinces!
I finally made my dream of moving out of Sydney + living & working overseas a reality! I left my job, my volunteering, a 5.25 year relationship & sold everything I own to make my dream come true.
I can be quiet to start, as this is my 1st time travelling alone and really getting out of my comfort zone but I can also sing badly at the top of my lungs to classic songs after a few drinks with friends!
I've mainly worked in offices in "9-5" jobs but quit full time office work late 2017 because I was over it. Early 2018 I accepted part time office work + began volunteering at a dog rescue - dog walking, feeding & as a kennel hand. Even though I didn't get paid, working at the dog rescue was my favourite job!
I finally went overseas for the 1st time in 2016 to NZ then Singapore/Vietnam 2017 & Scandinavia 2018.
I was living at the beach/lake in Sydney & love outdoor activities eg bike riding, kayaking, SUP boarding, walks, camping, road trips, dirt bikes, snowboarding, wakeboarding, boats, riding a 2 stroke scooter, etc.
I love crossing things off my bucket list eg harbour bridge climb, adventure caving, canyoning, paragliding, sky diving, quad biking, dog sledding, ice climbing, glacier hiking, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, river caving/jungle trekking, active volcanoes, bungee jumping, a canyon swing, 100m abseil into a cave, rafting, heli flight/glacier hike, jet boating, segways, zorbs, luges, meeting Santa & his reindeer, etc.
I like random outings like putt putt, arcades, bowling, laser tag, escape rooms, go karting, ropes courses, zip lining, trampolining, indoor rock climbing, etc.
My clubbing/rave days are over but when I do go out on odd occasions I prefer pubs/small bars & singing to classic rock/oldies! I love live music & have seen lots of bands live \m/ I have really eclectic taste in music.
I am keen to live a more nomadic lifestyle & meet people from around the world!
