  • Description

    Hey – I’m Ellie, 22, from England. I finished uni in 2019 (Bachelors degree in Microbiology) and have since been travelling (avoiding getting a proper job and living an adult life!). I lived in Germany initially, improving my language skills, helping out with children and travelling round whenever possible. Since then I've worked with various other Workaway Hosts, 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 - ideally with animals, children, or to community-based Workaway Hosts, though I'm 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 :)

  • More details about your skills

    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. I’m quick to adapt to new environments and learn new skills… just tell me what needs doing and we’ll find a way! ;)

  • What else ...

    I’m interested in photography, cooking (vegan), fitness and anything outdoors. I also enjoy hiking, cycling, swimming, running and much more. Sustainability is also 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 :)
