Hi My name is Matt. I am from Dublin, Ireland. I have been travelling on off for the last number of years. I love travelling to new places, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. I have been a member of Workaway for a number of years now. I think it is a fantastic way to travel. I love spending time and really getting to know a new place.
I have a couple of months before I start a new job and I would like to use the time to travel through Northern Spain. I have been to Spain before, mainly Andalusia and cant wait to see the north. I am looking forward to improving my Spanish.
I love nature and hiking and I really enjoy trail running. I am looking for any volunteer positions in the mountains where I can use some off days to go running.
I am an easy going but hard working person. I have had many different jobs and volunteer positions over the years, more information below. I am quite an adaptable person and I am happy to help in any way I can.
I worked for a number of years in the construction industry. Mainly labouring jobs, assisting brick layers and carpenters. I am very interested in natural construction methods. I studied engineering before this although I did not finish.
I am very interested in a self sustainable life style. I try to visit Workaway projects where I can learn something new. I consider myself a hard worker. I do not use the Workaway program for a cheap holiday and I always try to provide more than is expected of me.
Above all I like to have a good time and a laugh, and hopefully make new friends.
I am no chef but I love to cook. I enjoy playing board games and particularly chess.
I have volunteered in Spain and South America so I can speak basic Spanish. I enjoy speaking Spanish and look for any chance I can to improve.
I have a wide variety of previous work experience. I studied engineering before moving to Canada where I worked in the construction industry. My main job in Ireland was in a call center providing customer service. I also have experience working as a bartender and as kitchen help in a busy restaurant.
I have volunteered in many different places, including hostels, farms, construction work, campsites and more.
I am adaptable and happy to help in any way I can.
My main experience I have found useful is my construction experience. While I am no professional I can make a great assistant to any construction project. I particularly enjoy physical work and getting my hands dirty. So if you have any construction or landscaping work please send me a message.
I am a laid back open minded person. I am happy to go with the flow and adapt to whatever new situation I am in. I enjoy being active. I like running and playing football. I also love nature and hiking. I enjoy yoga and meditation.
