My next destination:France - from Jan 2022 until Jan 2022 View all
Hi, my name is Elisa!
I finished school this year and am taking a gap year to travel and gain new experiences.
In January I will start my journey in southern France, where I am planning to stay for two weeks and then go on to southern Spain for two weeks as well. My final destination is Portugal where I want to stay to improve my Portugese until I have to go back at the end of March! Of course if I fall in love with some place on the way, I would not mind staying there for longer than planned.
Friends would describe me as a very outgoing and empathetic person, who is hard working and does not shy away from a challenge. Someone who is very social and loves people but is also independent. However, the best way to get to know me is in person!
My ideal workaway host would be someone who cares for others and is trying to make this world a better place - just like me. I love animals as well as people and working outside. I'm not picky about the work I do, as long as I am in a nice enviroment. All in all, I am open to all kinds of experiences!

More details about your skills
This fall I did WorkAway at a sanctuary for abused donkeys and other animals where I gained experience on animal care, general maintenance and some permaculture gardening during the 5 weeks I stayed there. I also stayed at a fram in France for two weeks where I expanded my knowledge on animal care and farm life in general.
I am fluent in Spanish, German and English and very interested in learning new languages. Furthermore, I am very organized, reliable, open-minded as well as hard-working.
I started babysitting when I was 14 years old, I love taking care of kids and have a lot of experience in babysitting children who are 3 years or older.
More details about my language interests
I am happy to teach the languages I am fluent in (German, Spanish and English) and would love to improve my Portugese and my French
What else ...
