  • Description

    Hi,
    After 8 years working as a bookseller in Ireland, at the end of 2015, I decided to quit my job and travel the world - or at least some parts of it. Since then I visited such amazing countries like China, Indonesia, France, Morocco, Sweden, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Cuba and Canada. My workaway projects have brought me to many wonderful places like Lapland with its northern lights and reindeers, the unique Berber camp in the Moroccan desert, surf house near Lisbon or B&B situated on the slope of Mount Etna. I spent 4 months in France volunteering as a WWOOFer, including 3 weeks in the winery and 6 weeks in small B&B in the Pyrenees where I helped with food preparation, garden work and general housekeeping.
    Last year I was exploring Canada and was working in the beautiful Rockies for a rafting company as office manager. This year I’ve taught English in the beautiful Philippines and helped out in the hostels in Malaysia, Israel, Greece and Poland.
    I'm a very reliable person, easy going and passionate (mostly about books, traveling and cats). I speak fluent English, Polish and some French. I have a master degree in tourism and recreation so I often volunteer in the hospitality industry to gain more experience. I love trying new cuisines, learning new skills and challenging myself: in swedish Lapland I learned how to drive snowmobile, in Morocco - how to gut the fish, in Portugal - I tried surfing and in Sicily I overcame my fear of heights and tried paragliding.
