  • Description

    Occupation: I recently finished my Bachelor in Physics and have some time until I start my masters to reconnect with nature and learn as much as possible about sustainable living and agriculture.
    About Me:

    My name is Merlijn and I am 21 years old. I am from the Netherlands and I have just finished my Bachelor in phycis, which I did in Maastricht. I have until September 2021 to do some traveling and especially to be in nature as much as possible. I am a great fan of hiking, camping in nature and I love being outside. I have also been a part of the scouting for some time. Since the nature of the Netherlands is not that evidently present, I would like to go somehwere else to do these things.
    During my free time I play the french horn paint quite a bit and I am also fond of writing (even though I am very dyslectic hihi) especially short stories and poems.
    I would like to live sustainably at one point in my live and I would therefore like to experience a way of living in which one knows how to provide food and energy oneselve. I would love to learn all about the skills around and I hope I can be of great help.
    I guess that one of my skills would be baking and cooking as I enjoy doing it, but I deffinitly want to learn some new skills wnd I enjoy working outside (gardening, chopping wood) a lot. I do rather care about the well being of animals, (and yes I am vegan). I am very enthousiastic and a fast learner, so I hope to be of great help.
    Hopfully I can join soon!
