    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hello. I'm Hans from the Netherlands. I'm someone adventurous and ambitious with good work ethics. I have always shared an interest in traveling, meeting new people and exploring new places and cultures. I always like to challenge myself to adaptations while living and working in other countries. I also enjoy learning languages and playing chess.

    Okay, now something about my life: I worked for many volunteering organisations from ngo's to a dive centre in 13 different countries. Please, feel free to ask me for any reference since I have only one in my Workaway profile but worked and volunteered in so many different places. I spent one and a half year travelling and volunteering through South America. That's how I learned Spanish. Last year I lived in Canada's French speaking part of Quebec where I immersed myself in the French language for nearly 10 months which made me fluent in four languages (the others are English, Dutch and Spanish). I'm also a nature lover and enjoy being out on the water whether it's swimming, kayaking or canoeing. I've recently finished my second summer in a US summer camp where I have taught canoeing and worked as a lifeguard (I'm Red Cross certified). Also do I love the ocean and I would like to continue diving. I'm a Padi open water certified diver and I would love to further my education in the field of diving.

    Please, feel free to ask me any questions.
