  • Description

    I am super, super energetic and very friendly. I enjoy making myself useful and help people wherever and however I can.
    One day (a very fine day, if I may add) I decided to stop living a life that felt like a lie. I packed my bag, took my savings and started travelling alone.
    I was not your typical young backpacker. I was 37 . But as I started doing what I really enjoyed, it felt as if 10 years dropped off. Well, at least virtually ;)
    With age comes experience and my experience is my greatest assett. I worked in Hospitality for many years and I'm happy to share my knowledge .
    For the past 3 years, on and off, I travelled whilst volunteering and covered several roles : I worked as hostel receptionist, as a cook (providing breakfast and dinner for up to 45 guests daily) , at hostel bars, organising tours, being in charge of farms, dog shelters, dog hotels, I painted, decorated,.....you name it.
    Each experience brought a different knowledge. Learning new things is thrilling!
    Although I am an older workawayer, worry not. I have energy, strength and stamina that comes out of my ears (not literally....yuk!) as I have always exercised and kept fit.
    So, in other words, I'm confident I make a pretty good Workawayer and the feedback received so far is a reflection of the hard work I so far put in.

  • More details about your skills

    I worked in hotels, hostels restaurants and bars in many parts of the world. As receptionist, cook, barista, cleaner, manager.
    I have worked for huge companies and small family run businesses.
    Each time learning something new.
    I also have a passion for animals and nature so looking after animals and anything green is something that makes me happy.
    I volunteered at an ecuestrian centre, at farms and dog shelters, so getting dirty and doing physical work are not an issue. In fact I enjoy it.
