I'm from Poland, but I currently study in the Netherlands (in a charming city of Maastricht).
This summer I am on the road again, ready to be amazed and learn a lot! I am looking forward to going to the Baltic states to discover the local culture and reconnect with nature which I have been quite deprived of in the Netherlands.
I am hard-working, attentive and certainly not afraid of any challenges. This summer I did some workawaying in Colombia where I learned how to milk the goats, taught English in a small community, helped cooking for a whole Hare Krishna eco village and got my hands dirtly while painting a hostel. Two years ago I volunteered in a Swedish eco restaurant/hotel in the amazing Scandinavian forest which ignited my love for workaway. I am always excited to find a connection with others, make new friends, explore and grow!
The travel experience that impacted me early on was going on a year-long exchange to the United States when I was 15 where I did some serious searching for the "real America" in the cornfields of Indiana State.
I am sociable and caring, love long, good conversations about everything. I don't remeber the last time I was bored, probably because I equally enjoy adventures and just being alone, reading, doing yoga and simply contemplating.
Tea is my biggest addiction ;)
I care a lot about intercultural understanding and community involvement, I've been involved in many projects concerning intercultural understanding and I'm currently volunteering for a Refugee Project Maastricht.
I cannot say I have amazing manual skills and am a master of carpentry, because I am not. I am though happy to get involved and share what I have!
