UPDATE 23 Sept2020
Currently, I'm in UK (Cranbrook, Kent)
Like most people, I'm unable to travel fully until Corona restrictions are lifted. However, please contact me for my availability later in the year. I estimate I'll be available for further WorkAways from Nov 2020
Hi, my names Bryan, I'm 51 years old and live on a smallholding in Cranbrook, Kent, UK. Here I've been helping friends with their smallholding and catering business, homegurrown.co.uk. After 7 years of living and working here, I decided to take 18 months off to travel, help others and try new things.
My WorkAway travels will involve trips to Europe, America, Australia and New Zealand. (And a few other countries in between).
If you have a dog (or many dogs) then please get in touch. Walking the dogs in the countryside is one of my favourite things. I can't think of a better start and end to the day.
I originally trained as a greenkeeper and worked as a gardener many years ago. Whatever is needed I'm happy to help. I was brought up on a farm so I like to work hard and love to be outdoors.
MARKETING & WEBSITE HELP
If you need any help with a website or marketing then definitely get in touch. I hold both a Masters and a Degree in Marketing and have many years experience helping and advising small businesses. (While I travel I'll continue to support a few local businesses - working online). I can also help you with any graphic design, video editing and photography.

COOKING / FOOD
I love to cook and always happy to lend a hand in the kitchen. I have worked in kitchens throughout my life and can help prepare meals and can definitely help with the washing up and cleaning.
EASY GOING & HAPPY
I love to make people smile and like to be around people who are easy-going and enjoy the simple things in life. I prefer peace and quiet to noisy cities. I'm open to all offers in all countries and happy to fit into your lifestyle, diet, and wishes. And also happy to sleep in any accommodation, shared or private or simply out in the open sky.
SPANISH SPEAKER (still trying)
I've been learning Spanish for many years but still, seem to struggle. But would always like to learn a little more.
