    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    My name is Aoife (It's pronounced like Efa).

    I'm Irish (in case you couldn't guess from the name).

    I'm a bubbly outgoing person who loves to travel and meet new people.

    I have a degree in Podiatry. I have spent the last 2 years working in both community health centers and hospitals in Ireland. I left my job recently and am planning on spending the next few months traveling.
    In 2016 I worked and traveled in East Africa and South East Asia. Now I would like to spend some time closer to home exploring Europe! I have recently started to learn Spanish so I am particularly interested in Northern Spain.

    I have a wide range of skills and experience. I spent a number of years working as a surf instructor in a rural area of Ireland. In this job I was also teaching the Irish language (Gaeilge) through sports.

    I am a qualified lifeguard for both pool and beach and have experience in both.

    I'm also a keen gardener (a passion inherited from my mother.). I have lots of experience growing veg and doing general gardening tasks as we have a large garden and organic veg patch at home.

    I love nature and most of my hobbies center around the sea or the mountains. As a result of this I see the importance of looking after our planet. I've made lots of small changes in my life to reduce waste and plastics and reduce my carbon footprint. I am very interested in sustainability and eco friendly living and am keen to learn more about all aspects of it.

    I'm relatively handy and am always eager to learn new skills.

    At the moment I'm traveling in Spain and would love some work to help improve my Spanish hopefully while meeting some like minded people.
    I love surfing and pretty much all water sports so I'm ideally looking for somewhere close to the beach.
