Hello again Workaway hosts and Workawayers, I'm David Nathan and describe myself as a self-employed eco-adventurer spiritual hippie-type; Although originally from England, I've been a bit of a nomad most this life and regard myself as a world citizen; and for the last five years since quitting work, I have become a self-employed adventurer with just a backpack, living a simpler life, not only from the environmental point of view but also from a personal/spiritual standpoint. So I have been traveling around to learn about alternative ways for sustainable living, permaculture, eco projects and to make a re-connection with nature and myself! Now however I am also wishing to find myself a boat, a sailing yacht on which to live and travel the seas! I am interested in off-grid, self-sufficiency, no waste living...looking to help those in need and to learn the ropes so that I can gain experience and confidence to go it alone or with a companion/partner to share this magnificent life! 🧡⛵️
I have some experience gardening in general, picking fruit and have driven tractors, etc. I'm pretty useful with a hammer, an axe or hand saw; have repointed stonework/brickwork using natural mortar/ building techniques! I love working with wood but want to learn more....I have a passion for eco-friendly and permaculture projects, off-grid self-sustainable living!
I love all animals and have cared for dogs, cats, rabbits, chinchillas, hens, sheep, goats, donkeys and horses, pigs and a cute ferret! Now wishing to be in the amazing wilderness of planet earth.

I love to travel and hike/walk and read interesting and spiritual books and have moved around a lot in my life. In recent years...in october 2010, I spent 2 weeks in Kenya teaching english at a school in the Masai Mara. I've also volunteered through Workaway in Devon, UK in 2013.
Since Aug 2016 volunteering in Spain & Portugal. In 2014, I participated with the Findhorn Foundation Eco-community:
Exploring Community Life
Iona Summer Retreat
In 2015 after hiking on Dominica and Martinique in the Caribbean, I decided to leave work and find ways to live a simpler life!
In 2016 I walked from Switzerland to Spain on the St James Way (Camino de Santiago-French Way) and have walked other ways since, (Camino Finisterre, Camino Ingles, Camino Primitivo, Via de la Plata); now free to travel around learning about eco/alternative living! In 2017 I spent 3 months volunteering for an aid organization helping refugees in Greece. Then 2018/19 resting for 9 months in Asturias over winter during which time I worked for a permaculture garden and eco project.
During summer 2019, I volunteered at some music festivals through My Cause UK and attended Lovejam. I love music, especially folky melodic and ancient sounds... ☺️Looking forward to meet and interact with the wider Workaway community! Wanting to learn to sail by helping as crew sailing somewhere or to turn host skipper and invite experienced sailors to help crew my own vessel 😉😌🙏🌈🥰👣⛵️or to start my own land-based project on an island ☺️
