  • Beschreibung

    Hi I'm a mature Kiwi currently living in the UK. My first workaway was in 2019.

    I just had a wonderful 3 months in Fyn, Danmark. New Zealand is off till its doors open a bit wider, so Im heading to Scotland

    I look after my immunity. I will have 2 jabs and a Covid test, before travelling.

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

    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.

    I like villages and small towns too. I use public transport / walk myself, but can also drive

    I like to work mostly in good company, but some alone jobs are fine especially painting ! prefer to work in a team for animal, heavy or repetitive work. to be alone, all day, everyday, is not the goal.

    I like to do a routine or pre arranged morning task before i have to think.

    I like to learn permaculture or rewilding, fruitgrowing, mindfulness, building projects, and who knows what else.

    I like to try the local traditions Eg. language, songs, dances, folkdräkt, 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 me learning with my body better than me talking too much.

    I'm very motivated by LEARNING, KIND WORDS, and LAUGHS

    Thank goodness for Workaway! It makes adventure affordable.
