  • Description

    I have used Workaway since December of 2018 and I have had an overwhelmingly amazing experience thus far.

    I have been able to experience so many things through Workaway in such a short time already from helping with high class bed and breakfast's in the kitchen(my profile picture is me holding money I got as tip for playing guitar for guests by request), serving tables, checking in guests, watering gardens, helping assemble a heavy solar/heat generating device on a self sustainable farm in Costa Rica, teaching English/guitar, playing classical music at a seed festival, building a shelter with left over wood for husky puppies (which I helped raise from birth), rescuing dogs/puppies, training other volunteers, managing locations while owners where out of the country for months.

    I have had the opportunity to meet and develop relationships with so many fantastic and interesting people in such a short period of time, and crossed things off my bucket list like surfing a wave in a beautiful tropical paradise(Panama).

    I am hoping to make more great memories and experiences, and help in a meaningful way if I can.
