I'm Anna. I've been Workawaying for almost two years now - I love exchanging my energy and skills for bed and board! Things have aligned in my life to enable me to do so, so I'm escaping the treadmill for a bit. I've had office jobs in Bristol for years and desperately needed a change; I want to meet new people, find new ways of living, learn new skills, and visit different places on this beautiful island.
I'm hardworking, reliable, easy-going, flexible, conscientious, friendly, open. I'm INFJ and Aquarius. I love to be busy and muck in with whatever's needed; I'm definitely not a princess! I have some skills already but am an eager and fast learner.
I'm passionate about nature and being outdoors and long to get out of cities and connect with the wilder parts of the UK, and myself! I'm very keen to learn about living off-grid and more sustainably. Other particular interests I would like to develop include bee-keeping, permaculture, yoga, fermentation and preserving, foraging, plants as medicine, willow weaving, open water swimming.
I've been Workawaying since mid-August 2018 and have now stayed with four different hosts - one of which I have returned to three times and am now living with semi-permanently. I've been blown away by some of the experiences I've had so far - I feel so lucky to be on this journey and have no intention of stopping any time soon - I'm so excited about where Workaway will take me next! I'm very open to all possibilities, so do get in touch if you think I could help you with your project.
