Hello, my name is Mike! I am an experienced traveler and bring a lot of positive energy with me! I've worked for many years in many countries and have yet to find my future home.
Previously I lived and worked in; ''Portugal, France, India, Australia, Vietnam and Cambodia'' for a total of 8 years. In each country I try to find work or volunteering jobs, preferably in hospitality/tourism.
I fell in love with traveling, meeting people, learning about different cultures, nature and the sun a lot of years ago. Currently traveling to Mexico which I've felt drawn by for so long.. I am so happy I found out about Workaway, because it seems the most perfect way to get in contact with people across the world, experience local life and learn a lot of useful skills.
I can't wait to meet you all!

More details about your skills
I managed three hostels so far, in Portugal, India and Vietnam. This is one of my favorite jobs as I have great people skills and try to have everyone leave the door with a big smile and amazing memories. Also I have worked in multiple Hostels doing anything which was required of me (Cleaning/Taking care of guests/Administration/Bar/Cooking).
Hospitality/ bar work;
This is my biggest passion! I love to be able to give people absolutely anything their hearts desire, it brings me great joy to make other people happy and comfortable. I know a lot and am very passionate about beers. Also I make amazing burgers!!
Possibly the most important skill is that I love helping others, and learning new things while doing it. I like to see other people smile, and to see them happy. And I’ll do anything in my power to make them feel good.
I am a big tall Dutch guy, so any tough work I can pretty much do. Helping in gardens, building work and anything else which requires someone strong. Have some experience working with tools and carpeting.
When I was living in Portugal I also worked for a pub, setting up and promoting live music. I really found out about my PR capabilities here. Other then this, in every hostel or bar I've worked I always naturally try to bring people together and organize events or general things to do.
I can get along with computers pretty well and know how to work with sheets (excel/google). I have also worked in game design, so I can work with 3dsMax and some other programs.
More details about my language interests
Any country I live in I want to learn its language. I'd really like to learn useful Spanish quickly as I'll be going to Mexico
What else ...
I bring positive energy and happiness wherever I go and try to bring people together. I am very trustworthy, responsible and loyal. Will give my all, all my heart/passion/love to a place when I work there.
