  • Description

    Hey there!
    My name is Lina and I am from Germany.
    I finished school in the summer of 2019. After that I started to travel around Canada and the USA and tried out workaway for the first time, which turned out to be a wonderful idea!
    My first host, in Ucluelet B.C, was a family with two young boys aged 2 and 4. I worked for them mostly as a babysitter and helped them with all kinds of work around their house.
    After travelling through the USA by train I went back to Vancouver Island and worked on a Hobby farm with a great community of workawayers for 8 months. There I helped with small building projects, taking care of their many animals and maintaining the big vegetable garden.
    Corona also changed my travel plans so that I had to go to Germany earlier than expected.
    Back home I worked in a hospital for 4 months, which was another wonderful and eye-opening experience. In March I started to study biomedical chemistry but want to change the subject in the next semester.
    At the moment I´m looking for a little time out from studying and city life.

    I would describe myself as an open, well organized, happy, positive and adventurous person.
    Nature in all of its diversity is particularly close to my heart, so I enjoy working outside, in the garden and with animals. Besides that, I love working in a team especially with people from all over the world!
    I am really looking forward to meeting you and hope that we can have a great time together! 😊
