    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hi my name is Julia and I am from Amsterdam in The Netherlands. I am 23 years old and currently traveling solo around South East Asia for 5 months. A dream finally come true. I traveled a lot but I have never been in Asia. I wanted to go here because Buddhism is something what really interest me. I would like to see how this is a part of the culture and how people practice it. Also I would love to see the nature and learn about other cultures and meet the local people.
    I think workaway is a beautiful way to come in contact with the locals and also help a community. After traveling for 3 months from place to place I notice that I would like to stay longer in one place. I would like to learn something new and be part of a community who works towards a goal together. And where everyone can learn from each other, because everyone has a different background.
    I grew up in Amsterdam, the city with the most nationalities in the world. Growing up in a city, being raised without any religion, traveling a lot, and studying social work are many factors that made me the person I am today. I would describe myself as a quite patient, openminded and independent person. I like to be in groups but also can be easily by myself. In my free time I like to take walks, read, cook vegan food, try yoga, travel, spend times with my friends and try new things.
