  • Description

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reading my profile!

    I am currently travelling in Switzerland having left Japan at the end of 2023, where I worked as an English teacher for a total of 8 years, in three different stints.

    I started my latest sabbatical in Tasmania in January 2024, and I am looking for interesting workaway experiences in places within Europe, and Scandinavia in particular, as well as locations closer to home in the UK.

    Four years ago, on a previous break from teaching, I enjoyed numerous wonderful and varied experiences with workaway hosts in Scotland (sheep farming, dog-sitting), Norway (running a guesthouse in the Lofoten Islands) and Chile (farming in Patagonia).

    I am a well-travelled, mature, independent but sociable person who is easy to get along with, and I am always looking to learn new skills.

    If you have any further questions then please just ask!

  • More details about your skills

    I am eager to help in any way as I am a quick learner and open-minded.

    I have experienced a whole range of tasks during my workaway experiences so far, e.g. painting, cleaning, log splitting, gardening, animal care, farming, heavy lifting, general house maintenance, and so on.

    I like to keep myself in good shape so I am fit and would be fine with any physically demanding work.

  • Age

    39

  • What else ...

    I am very much an animal lover, so I would particularly enjoy workawaying in an environment full of pets!

    I am also good with children, given that I am an elementary school teacher by profession, with five nieces and nephews who I love interacting with :)

    I will always be a willing helper in the kitchen when needed, and I actually enjoy washing up - it's therapeutic!
