  • Description

    Hi there!

    This is me, Annelies, traveling (mostly solo for the past 3 years) via hitchhiking, doing workaways, making new friends, meeting up with old friends and having a job every now and then.

    I've been trying to figure out and focus on what matters and what is needed to serve my community and myself. Always on the lookout for humans that live sustainable and concious with the earth, who inspire me and share joy.

    Anything that has something to do with eco-friendly living, permaculture, community living, living more sustainable, charity work, off the grid, non-profit, spirituality, living with and taking care of animals, well-being, art, cultural activities, inclusiveness, anthropology or is just UNIQUE in it's own way; I'm interested!

    I'm an artist and always motivated for creative/artistic jobs. Mosaic, macrame, photography, painting, sowing, crafting - count me in!

    Truly listening is a skill that means a lot to me and I'm always trying to improve in this. I'll probably bomb you (no need to be scared) with many questions, I hope my hosts are open and have the time to answer these.

    For the past 2,5 months I've been walking the Camino to Santiago. Just finished and now looking for new adventures!

  • More details about your skills

    Finished my bachelor in Social Work and studied Theatre Teacher for a while.
    Creative, flexible and pro-active. Communication IS key and I'm very passionate about creating open, honest and safe spaces by clear communication.

    When I work, I work hard. I appreciate clear instructions, proper working tools and availability from the host to answer questions when they arrise. I like the balance in workaways where I can 'work' hard, learn, push myself for 4 to 5 hours a day and afterwards 'play' hard, relax and spend time on personal goals. However I've also had positive experiences with workaways where the 'work' hours were devided during the day and we 'flowed' through the days. I guess - if we vibe, we vibe!

    Workexperience in hospitality (front of house, hosting & reception), child care, driving big cars and trailers, teamleader & managing positions, acting, teaching (language-, dance- and dramateacher), workshop facilitator and social worker.

    I try to really focus on the things I do and do them with intention. That's probably why I'm so bad at doing 2 things at the same time :)
