Hello! I am a WorkAway volunteer, now traveling through Portugal on my 40-year-old motorcycle with trailer, and I might be coming your way!
I am American by birth but now carry a Dutch passport. I grew up in Nigeria, West Africa, studied in Michigan, USA and have lived the last 25+ years in The Netherlands. I dance Tango, like to sing, and am learning to play the guitar. I try to practice a bit of Ashtanga Yoga. I have a CELTA diploma (to teach English). I am also trained in massage.
Now that my children are starting on their own paths towards adulthood, I am ready to explore more of the world around me, discover my deeper self and make new friends in the process. I hope to learn how to relax in the face of uncertainty, change and surprises.
I have worked as a house painter and have many years of DIY experience. My 20 years of employment doing maintenance for an American Embassy taught me skills in carpentry, plumbing, electrical, tiling, plastering, floor installation etc. I am also a photographer, a painter, and have reasonable computer skills (technical and creative). I almost always find a way to do something, even if it isn't the 'standard' solution. I like creative solutions. I can work very independently, but love sharing a job with someone.
(Originally American) now Dutch!
I am traveling by motorcycle with a trailer.
