  • Description

    Hey there!
    I am a guy from the Netherlands drawn towards seeing more of this beautifull world in a helpfull way!
    After years of study I want take my time to be surprised by what and who I encounter along the road, learn languages and fun interesting or handy skills.
    Kind and cheerful, I'm an every man's friend who enjoys good company and likes to help out wherever possible.
    I'm broadly interested in culture as well as nature and love the unexpected that life throws at us.
    Apart from looking for my next destination and arranging all that comes with travel, I'm busy with calisthenics and just finished helping with stormdamage control on a farm, worked at BiológicosdaCorujeira and Animal Rescue Algarve
    I like challenging myself, whether that is playing a new instrument or preparing a home for near total renovation.
    In the past I used to study and practice to become a dentist so I would be able to directly aid people around the world as a Médecine Sans Frontière.
    Unfortunately the prospect of being a borderless dentist turned out to be bad for your physical health. And as time went by a monotonous routine with that. That is why I quit and am now exploring the multitude of different paths to travel the world and help out as well!
    Would like to welcome a hard worker who wants to learn languages, fun, interesting and valuable skills, while doing chores?
    Then I'll be happy to come along your workway!
