I am Lydia (25) From Manchester (UK) I have been doing Workaway for 7 months now in Norway, I have learnt many skills and really enjoyed being out In the nature, away from city life. I have been living in cabins, making a fire everyday and enjoying the simpler things in life. I have been living the Norwegian life style, lots of skiing trips and hiking even learning how to make lefse! I would really like to learn more about being self sufficient so lots of gardening :) and I am really interested in alternative life styles. I am dreaming of one day having my own self sufficient home.
I am currently in Norway in Steigen on an island resort called Manshausen. My role here is quite varied I am helping to cook for guests (breakfast, lunch and dinner) as well as serving. I am also cleaning and preparing our cabins ready for guests to a high standard, as well as helping in the kitchen garden and some fishing occasionally. I have been enjoying Kayaking, Mountain climbing / rock climbing, fishing, cycling and jumping into the freezing ocean!
I am a positive, happy, person and I am open to all kinds of projects and physical work, I am not afraid of getting my hands dirty. I take a lot of pride in everything I do.
I love to be; outside exploring, sports, anything creative, taking pictures, socialising and getting to know new people.
I am sure that I can help you with what you're passionate about too, thats the exciting part! :) I'm sure we can get a long really well, I am very respectful of your beautiful home and your space.
I look forward to meeting you Tusen Takk
