Active, vegan, nature-lover - always ready for a new adventure.
Hey! I’m Ellie, 22, from England and have been on the road since finishing uni in 2019 (essentially just avoiding serious adult life!). I lived in Germany initially, improving my language skills, helping out with children and travelling round whenever possible. Since then I've stayed with various other Workaway Hosts across Europe, working with all sorts of animals and also helping with garden work and basic maintenance and renovation tasks.
I’m planning to travel a lot more over the next few years, initially within Europe but then definitely further afield too. Working with animals is my real passion, but I also love spending time with children and I find it particularly valuable to work in community-based settings with other like-minded people. I am of course open to everything!
I am passionate about the environment, fitness, health, nature, cooking (vegan) and lots more and I’m always ready to help out in busy environments. I have experience with animals and children (including those with additional needs) and am keen to learn new skills.
My travel plans can be flexible and I’m up for anything – please message me :) If you're looking for a travel buddy, let's go!
I come from a big family and am therefore used to a noisy, happy, full house! From dogs and cats to squirrels and degus, I have grown up around animals at home and am consequently not at all afraid of getting dirty and helping out. I also have good experience with children through siblings of my own (including a younger foster brother who has Down syndrome and additional learning difficulties), as well as various work placements (from children’s summer camps in Germany to busy medical settings in the UK). Although I love being outdoors in nature, I can always give a helping hand around the house too. I’m quick to adapt to new environments and pick up skills… just tell me what needs doing and we’ll find a way! ;)
More details about my language interests
Always keen to practice German - and happy to help with your English too of course!
I’m interested in photography, cooking (vegan), fitness and anything outdoors. I also enjoy hiking, cycling, running and much more. Sustainability is something I'd love to learn more about, especially in relation to travel.
My travel plans are flexible and I have no end date! I'm always keen to meet like-minded travel buddies, so feel free to send me a message :D
