  • Description

    Hello there! Florin from Romania here. I'm 29 and there's one thing that stands out about me: I like to learn how to do things; I am that practical kind of guy ( but not only, you will see ).

    A bit more than 3 years ago when I decided to travel through Workaway, I've been lucky enough to find my first host to be the perfect one as a beginner traveler and an former farmer. I reached a community in Germany full of skilled people. Never in my life before I've been in contact with such people and of course I took advantage of the new situation I was in. I had such a thirst of learning everything they could teach me ( no exaggeration, I promise! ). I stayed with them for approximately 15 times for a total of more than 2 and a half years ( they had a lot of things to teach me and it would have taken a while ).

    So, what kind of skills I gained through hard work, responsibility, seriousness, punctuality and clear instructions? In the beginning of my stay it was about animals, gardening, maintaining the place in a good shape - which for a farmer like me wasn't something new , but when the moment came to build a wooden-frame house for all the volonteers that were coming from all over the world, things changed. I've been introduced to a construction site which I didn't do much before ; it caught me and from that moment on to all these skills I brought to a (semi) professional level:
    •plumbing: waste water, drinking water systems ( copper pipes )
    •dry-wall construction : chip boards, ply wood, plaster boards, plastering
    •ceramic tiling : bathrooms, toilets, hallways
    •electricity : basic electricity for a normal house ( wall sockets, switches, lights )
    •and all the other little things that are necessary on a construction site.
    •• another thing I would add to the list is that that I developed an eye/ feeling for figuring out things when there's an unexpected change or challenge.

    I mentioned above that I am a practical guy, but not only. What I meant with it is that I met a lot of young people on my way which made me so courious about people in general and the common well-being of all of us. I discovered the power of thinking, of how important is to question big, to feel, to share,to get rid of unnecessary burdens, of societal expectations, to imagining and creating that kind of world we want to live in, to influence and heal eachother and as Anna, my friend, said : "to bring the magic out of us".

    I am here to pay attention, to learn, to get influenced, to share.
    I am looking for passionate, serious and hard-working people;
    I am looking for teachers!
