    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hi potential host 😃. My name is David and I’m from the UK but am a world traveller!

    I’m trying to focus on learning more about eco lodges, farming /permaculture/building and living more sustainably. My long-term goal eventually is to have my own work away project. I have a lot of skills to offer you – in the UK I work in organic food sales, but around the world I have done everything from painting, maintenance, building work, garden work, restaurant and hostel work and lots of fruit picking! I have also helped to build schools and worked for a year in a dog rescue centre. I love nature, walking, my family and making food for people – I am known for my outdoor cooking! I’m not work shy and being slightly older I understand how the world works, and want to give back to you, as much as I want to gain from this amazing insight into your way of life.

    Left by host (Eco projects and ...) for Workawayer (David)
    "David was a true workawayer, not a "shirk" awayer. His sense of humour lightened any situation and he was prepared to tackle any task given - with the same enthusiasm. Thanks David, you are welcome back any time."

    I’m happiest when I’m meeting new people, exploring my surroundings, and experiencing different cultures and activities. I love learning new skills and starting new projects and approach life with a can do attitude.

    I live a healthy lifestyle, waking up early and enjoying fitness, walks, yoga, meditation, and eating well.

    I have plenty of energy and passion to offer any potential host, and know I will add real value to any project I’m involved with.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon!!!
