Hi, I’m Italian but grew up in South African and lived in The Netherlands since 2016.
In hospitality I combined accounting with some guest services - check-ins and helping guests plan sight-seeing and enjoying the area. I did this type of work at my parents camp in Mozambique and at a boutique hotel in Johannesburg (combined with hospitality duties).
I'm actually happiest when I'm working in nature, or painting, sanding, sawing, building! I really enjoy DIY and I’m dedicated to learning what I can learn from hosts. On my last Workaway I was taught and then allowed to use the sit-on mower and a weed strimmer. It was great fun. I've also been grateful to learn how to chop wood, use a chain saw and change the oil on a car. Learning while doing is a gift of Workaway. My experience with renovations is in my reviews.
I've loved and ridden horses most of my life. I'm confident and comfortable riding and taking care of the stables and outdoor areas. I love animals, especially horses and dogs, I couldn't say which ones more. :-)
Since living in The Netherlands I've been a full time accountant but have resigned and started a company doing group travel for women. Italy will be the main destination and I know that Workaways are a golden opportunity to live amongst locals and learn about a country.
It would be wonderful to be paired with a host who needs renovation, DIY and gardening / agricultural help. Or as a bonus with animal care.
I don’t see Workaway as a means of free travel. I've had so many wonderful & meaningful experiences through Workaway & I'm grateful for the hosts that have given me opportunities so far.
I believe in hard work & having a sense of humour. And above all else being a good human being & helping other people feel the same way.
Thanks for reading my profile.
