  • Description

    Hi there,
    after my studies of becoming a teacher of secondary education I started a world trip in august '17. It was a 10month trip full of wonderful people, landscapes, countries, cultures, delicious food, unforgettable memories and a loot of lessons.
    I have always enjoyed to travel and learn about other cultures, traditions and perceptions of the world, but it was this trip when I finally learnt that there is more to life than having a decent job and an organised and safe future. I strongly believe that the world would be a better place by working hand in hand, instead of fighting for your own place in it. I am currently on a path of sharing this idea with people who have some similar view on the world as well as with people who haven't. I like to understand, to learn and grow and care. I hope I will never stop either of these things. There is so much to learn and experience on this earth. We could start with a smile and see what happens :)

  • What skills do you have?

    My main skill is my interest and motivation to learn. But I guess there are some types of skills where I come with a little more than no experience: teaching, handicrafts (any textiles), cooking, baking, householding, organising stuff, backpacking.

    I have a big interest, but am still on a low level of skill in: drawing, painting, any sorts of arts, carpenting, building, yoga, meditation, poi, juggling.

    I am nearly unexperienced, but willing and motivated to learn: gardening, animal care.
