  • Description

    Hello and thanks for finding my profile :)

    I am Maria - a 29 year old architect. For the last couple of years it has been my dream to take a break from my life, visit multiple countries, grow as a person, meet new people, experience other cultures, taste the flavors of new places, get new views on life, gain new impressions and make everlasting memories. That is what I have done since I left Germany in late 2017 and so far my journey has brought me to multiple beautiful places. I can feel that it will end soon but am still excited for the coming adventures - maybe by doing a workaway at your place :)

    I am a very active person - I like being outside, riding bicycles, swimming, and hiking, but also lying in grass or at the beach (at night) breathing the sun and the smell of olive trees (I miss this!), listening to cicadas and watching the night sky. Then again, I also enjoy watching movies! I am an extremely big fan of movies and sometimes, on a cold winter day, there is nothing better than hot chocolate and some StarWars.

    In addition to my love for architecture, I also enjoy craftsmenship and creative handicraft including building basic furniture. For my last apartment I created my own bookshelf, bed and table. I also love cooking and baking and I always try new recipes. I am extremely interested in learning how to cook food from different countries and I would love to show you some of my favourite recipes. And learn some of yours. Anyone out there who can teach me how to make to die-for-ice cream?

    I am an open-minded, patient and fun person who is willing to learn new things and the language (I love languages, I just need to put more effort in it and instead of starting to learn my fifth new one, concentrate on the others...) and is able to work hard and self-sufficient. I love new challenges and to grow with them. I am also shy. So please give me 2 or 3 days to adapt and to open up.

    Thanks for reading my profile, for taking the time. I look forward to meeting/ and or hearing from you and I am thankful for every opportunity I will get.

    See you soon,
    Maria :)
