Hi there, I moved to The Netherlands in 2016 because I've always wanted to live in Europe.
I grew up in South Africa but my family is Italian so I am an EU citizen.
English is my home language & I understand Dutch quite well but don't speak it that well!
After a few years of travelling around I’m ready to settle down but want to do a Workaway first. I’m starting a business in womens group travel so will also use the free time to work on my company.
Professionally I'm a bookkeeper & event organiser & have been doing this for about 8 years. I've helped at my parent's lodge in Mozambique over many busy seasons & really love this type of work. Helping with guests, planning activities for them & doing restaurant & kitchen duties.
I also enjoy manual work like renovating, gardening & general DIY, my experience coming from renovating homes we've lived in & other Workaway trips.
I love being outdoors, even when the weather is cold.
I’m an animal lover, especially dogs, horses & most farm animals. I always feel comfortable & quite at peace when in their company.
I've been riding horses since I was a child & believe in a gentler manner of horsemanship. I spent time with a man known locally in Hawaii as a horse whisperer & this was an incredibly special experience for me as I learnt so much about horses, human nature & myself.
I'm quite independent when left on my own but do enjoy working with people for some of the tome. I believe in hard work & having a sense of humour & above all else being a good human being & helping other people feel the same way.
Thanks for reading my profile.
