    Travelling


    Active, vegan, nature lover; always ready for a new adventure...

  • Description

    Hey! I’m Ellie, 23, 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 about 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, both within Europe and 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 open to everything!
    I am passionate about the 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 for cultural exchanges and to learn new skills.
    My travel plans are always 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 not at all afraid of getting stuck in 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! ;)

  • What else ...

    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.
