  • Description

    My name is Dana and I live in a village in the western part of Germany.
    At the moment I´m stuyding landscape ecology.
    Most of my free time I spend with my horse to care, with riding, grooming or mucking out stables. I also love to ride my bike and am hopelessly bibliophile, I could read, write, or simply discuss various books with a kindred spirit for hours.
    Apart from books I enjoy good company as much as quiet times.
    Cooking and eating whole, healthy food is another passion of mine, and I`d love to learn more about growing and preparing organic and home-grown food. I have worked as a kitchen assistant for a private chef.
    I am equally passionate about nature and every kind of animal and would love to be outdoors and spent time with animals, to learn and to gain knowledge. I also enjoy birdwatching or studying wildlife.

    Volunteer work at an environmental education centre which hosts a variety of animals from bunnys to sheep and pigs is also part of my life that I enjoy very much.
    I am hardworking, eager to learn and enthusiastic to gain new skills.
    I´m looking forward to getting to know another way of life, to help with everything and to spend a great time abroad.
    Thanks for taking the time to read through my profile!
