  • Description

    Hi there,

    My name is Dini and I grew up on a farm in the Netherlands. By now I have done multiple workaways in Iceland (2015), Australia, Finland (2017) and Norway (2018). I find it one of the best ways to travel, learn new skills and meet people. At the moment I'm in Canada on a Working holiday visa and no longer traveling alone as I got a blue heeler puppy! She's is mainly a companion dog and according to many others very cute. She loves people, other dogs and going on adventures probably even more as me!

    Being a farmers daughter and having studied agricultural engineering I often end-up on farms or working with animals. Having an agricultural background, I love to see how farming is done in other countries (and to do some work myself). I'm especially interested in learning more about herding and dog training. Besides farming I also love nature and would like to experience some off-grid living in the wilderness as this is something we do not really have in the highly populated Netherlands.

    I'm always open for some other new experiences and adventures to learn new skills and meet people I otherwise wouldn't get to know.

    Hope to meet you soon!

  • What skills do you have?

    I'm good with any work around the farm (e.g. from tractor driving to shoveling manure) and I have learned to work hard. Furthermore, I have studied Biosystems Engineering so I have knowledge about (modern) farm technology and do know my way around with computers (but I rather spend less time behind them). Since my student time I have lived on my own and with housemates so I know how to live together, clean a house and how to cook for myself and others (but don't expect me to be a masterchef).
    Besides, I'm eager to learn any other new skills!
