unterwegs auf Reisen
Been living on the road for 3 years, collecting experiences along the way! What's the next project?
I'm currently in Mexico looking for a new project to join in on! I've been on the road for several years now.
I grew up in the US, but now I'm based in London, though I can't really call it home since I mostly live on the road traveling! My goal with Work Away is to experience many different cultures and gain experience in other areas. I come from a finance background and also have experience in Social Media & Event Planning.
I'm interested in opening a hostel in Europe, during the last few years I have spent a lot of time volunteering and working with hostels to learn and share experiences. I take every experience on as if it was my own business, so I approach my stay with great passion and responsibility!
I’ve come to learn, there is more than one way to live and be successful in our lives. Shortly after I began traveling the novelty of traveling for the sake of it wore off and I wanted to experience something more productive. I began to volunteer in a variety of fields while I was in Southeast Asia, it gave a deeper connection to the places I was visiting rather than being a tourist passing by.
Now I can't imagine any other style of travel!
I hope to work with you soon!

Most recently I have volunteered in many hostels & home-stays. Anywhere from reception work to managing the hostel, socializing with guests, planning events & activities, and creating atmosphere.
Here are some of my favorite experiences so far:
Thailand: I worked closely with many hostels in Thailand planning events, pub crawls, and tours with the guests. It was such a blast learning the local culture and living the Thai lifestyle.
Cambodia: On an island Eco-Resort I worked in the restaurant and beach bar, as well as assisting in the daily operations. The laid back island lifestyle wasn't hard to get into at all!
Vietnam: I spent a few weeks in a small village teaching English to young children, I found it to be incredibly rewarding.
Montenegro: I worked with a family run hostel, entertaining the guests and planning events. Daily boat trips around the Adriatic coast! They were voted best hostel in the country for 2018!
Myanmar: By far one of my most amazing experiences, I led motorbike/e-bike tours for sunrises and sunsets, as well as organized sunset boat trips. Leading large groups of 20-30 people we had a blast and ended the month with wonderful reviews from the guests.
In most of my WorkAway experiences, I have helped revamp Social Media agendas and spent time working closely with owners in order to optimize their online presence. I find it to be a very important aspect of your business and I am happy to share what I've learned.
I've gained so many wonderful experiences and learned new skills while volunteering, but I am eager to continue learning more!

Was noch ...
I know many people use WorkAway to save money or extend their travels, which I greatly appreciate the opportunity. My main goal, however, is experiences and friendships! I like to make a local connection and leave my mark everywhere I visit.
So if we work together, I hope we can make real friendships and learn from each other, more than just a job!
I am very eager to gain some new experiences and learn about local cultures.
I'm also especially happy to try new foods and diets!
