    *ABOUT ME*
    My name is Mashka, 27 years old, a born adventurer.
    I was born in Belarus and lived there for 4 years, after which I moved to Israel (for 10 years), and then to Spain (another 10 years), spending 1 year of Erasmus in Germany, and now 23years in Italy.

    Now, after travelling all around rural Italy (with Workaway and Couchsurfing) and falling in love with its people and culture, I decided to settle down here.

    I would like to base myself around Veneto-Toscany. While I am looking for a stable job and apartment, I would be happy to co-live and share my skills, knowledge, time and positive energy with those who need a hand in any type of jobs I can help with. And if we end up getting along really well and you want me to stay longer, I'm all in for community living!

    Important note: I would like to stay in a place that is not completely isolated so I can go to the city and carry on my searchings (I don't have a driving license).

    I will be glad to help you to:
    Take care of animals and vegetable garden (also applying permaculture principles)
    Practice languages (Russian, Hebrew, Spanish English)
    Translations, proofreading, subtitling
    Keep your house in order (I am a freak of organizing closets, drawers, documents...)
    DIY's and manual projects
    Other types of chores or tasks that you may need. I'm spontaneous and I like the challenge and the opportunity to learn new things!

  • Type of help

  • What skills do you have?

    I speak a wide range of languages, such as Russian, Hebrew, Spanish English, Italian and some basic German.

    As mentioned above, I LOVE organizing and putting things in order, so if you have a black-hole closet somewhere, leave it up to me!

    In the past year, I've been living in the countryside and learning how to take care of rural animals, cultivate a garden by the permaculture principles, and take care of vineyards and olive trees.

    I also really enjoy doing DIY projects, hiking, being around animals, practising Latin dances (I'm pretty basic, and I'm eager to learn more!), trying myself in yoga and slackline, and pretty much anything that involves movement :).

  • Languages spoken

    Russian, Hebrew, Spanish, English, Italian (all fluent), and some basic German

  • Age


  • What else ...

    My life has taught me to be easily adaptable, flexible and an open-minded person, therefore I love to explore and try some new points of view and ways of living. I want to try new experiences, be it sports, a DIY projects, or a spiritual practice, or anything I've never have practised before.

    While I do adapt myself to the environment I'm in, there are a few things that are part of me and which I practice and value the most:
    ·sense of tidiness
    ·sense of humour
    ·and common sense :)

    Also, I am quite a perfectionist, so I won't quit until the job is done to its best level.
