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.

Take care and do fun activities with the children. And help them in their progress growing up as nice human beings :)
