unterwegs auf Reisen
Hey! This is Nils from germany and i'm 31 years old.
I'm traveling since February 2018 through the caribbean islands and south america and done a lot of volunteering since then. I found the most of the volunteering opportunities via friends or by asking around.
My long-time jobs were 6 weeks on a sailboat through the caribbean islands, 4 weeks in an earthship project in Argentina and 6 weeks helpling to build a hostel in Chile.
Except of that i've done a lot of small repairs, maintenance and small projects while staying in hostels for some days as well as helping out on farms, schools and a dive shop.
I'm already excited, what i will do and learn in the future!

I already learned and did a lot, but i cannot wait to learn something new!
I have a drivers license for cars with and without trailers. I don't have a drivers license for motorcycles but have experience using them.
I worked in many hostels where housekeeping and maintenance were normal chores. I don't have any problems to get my hands dirty. I also worked with some typical hostel systems like Bananadesk or LobbyPMS.
Until now i mostly cook for myself or small groups. I don't have experience cooking for big groups or even guests but i would be happy to get that experience! I love to bake my own bread if it is possible and after improvising ovens many pizza nights already happend. ;-)
I helped in an earthship building project in Argentina where we build walls out of old tires, drinking bottles / cans and clay. We also build greywater tanks to reuse sink-/showerwater for plants.
After that i spent some weeks in Chile and helped building a new hostel. I learned some plumbing, electricity, gas system maintenance, welding metal and improvising in general to create good, working solutions with a low budget.
I love dogs and already took care of them in many places. I just need to know what is special about your good boy or girl and i would love to learn about other animals as well!
I started to create my first websites when i was 14 and never gave it up. I know how to create basic or really special websites, can create webbased tools (e.g.: customer databases) and know everything what you need around that like hosting, domain management, e-mails, etc. I also have some years of experience with SEO and know what you have to do to boost your website in search engines (e.g.: Google).
I learned a lot about social media for business environments. If you want to use social media to boost your hostel, hotel or company i can create the needed infrastructure and show you how to do it right.
I taught english to children for 6 weeks and i loved it. Their native language was spanish.
I will also start to teach german (english if possible) online.
I lived and worked 6 weeks on a 15m catamaran from Sint-Maarten to Grenada and i loved it. Typical chores were helping with the sailing, cleaning, cooking, taking care of the dog, driving the dinghy and much more. I would love to do that more often and gain more experience on boats.
I just finished my PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and the Enriched Air, Deep Dive, Wreck Dive and Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialties.
During my job as a Database- and Systemadministrator (over 10 years) i did a lot of project management and budgeting in company environments.
Computer and server systems were the main part of this job. I can just check and maintain your personal computer or build multiple server systems designed for several thousands of users.
I built many new internet and wifi solutions into hostels and private homes.
As well as security systems with up to 10 cameras and a saving time of one week.
I would love to extend this list very soon with something i learned at your place!
