    Super Workawayer

  • Description

    Hello everybody!
    My name is Mattia and I'm 26 years old.
    I come from a little town in the north of Italy called Sondrio, in the middle of the mountains and not too far from the Swiss border.
    I'm doing a European Master in Renewable Energy, which allowed me to live for a year in Barcelona and another one in Stockholm. I'm actually getting closer to the end, so hopefully I'll soon be free to continue my adventure with workaway.
    So far I've travelled as a "workawayer" seven times, four times in France, once in Spain, Portugal and The Netherlands.
    My first experience was in the summer of 2012 in a village close to Montpellier, called Le Pouget. Then, during the summers of 2013, 2014 and 2015 I had a beautiful stay in Ticheville (Lower Normandy), in a vegetarian restaurant called La Maison du Vert. After that I had two other great experiences in the south of Spain, in a little village called Los Guajares, and in Lisbon, where I worked in a hostel. A stable in the dutch countryside was instead the place where I worked and lived for around ten very nice days during my stay in the Netherlands.
    The more experiences I live, the more I realize how much I love workaway: that's the best way to visit new places, making new friends from all over the world, learning lots of different things, improving the knowledge of foreign languages.. all at the same time!
    I'm a sociable and friendly person: I really enjoy spending time with people, appreciating their cultures and personalities. At the same time I also like spending time on my own, maybe while listening to some good music or reading an interesting book.
    I'm really looking forward to living new exciting experiences!

  • What skills do you have?

    I'm a flexible and serious worker. On the previous workaway experiences I did various things, which helped me developing different tasks: basic masonry, waiting, kictchen work at a restaurant, painting, hostel reception, gardening, taking care of horses in a stable.
    Of course, I'm also open to try new things and learn as much as possible.
