    Hi I'm a mature Kiwi currently just back in New Zealand after 11 years in the UK, and some wonderful visits in Sweden and Denmark.
    My first workaway was in 2019. It was a difficult start and I did not understand the feedback process, so I hope you can allow me to start again !

    I will read your profile then say Hi , then get into details when you have seen mine.

    A friendly welcome is a biggy for me.

    I love house painting! also natural health, organics, making things, gardens, people, making beauty, landscapes, meeting the locals, walking, flat cycling and swimming in the sea.

    I am used to cats, working dogs, horses, sheep and milking goats (can milk) I had my family on NZ sheep farms so I can help with anything, and love the countryside. Most use in house, garden, DIY, shop, hospitality.

    I like villages and small towns too. I use public transport / walk myself, but can also drive,... anything.
    Tall, I prefer a bicycle that is tall

    I like to work mostly in good company, but some alone jobs are fine especially painting !

    I prefer to work in a team for animal, heavy or repetitive work. To be alone, all day, every day, is not my goal. It is cultural exchange and learning.

    I like to do a routine or pre arranged morning task and enjoy breakfast before hearing about new decisions, and changes to plans

    Id like to learn / help with creative, art, permaculture or rewilding, fruitgrowing, mindfulness, building projects, and who knows what else.

    I like to try the local traditions Eg. language, songs, dances, costume, language, sheep breeds, wool, weaving, textiles, traditional culture, books, heritage, historic buildings, open air museums, Xcountry skiing? skating? etc etc

    Always learning to see the big picture and live a better life.
    I like to settle in by working together rather than by giving my long life history

    I'm very motivated by LEARNING, KIND WORDS, and Laughs. Thanks and praise etc are all good energy lifters for the task you have given me

    Thank Goodness for Workaway! It makes adventure affordable.
