    Hotelmanagement assistent (4-5* Hotels, B&Bs) , Travel Expert (Travel Agency), Harvest Helper (Cauliflower picker). (some other) (Don't hesitate to ask me for more detailed infos)

    My skills:
    - people person (Love to meet new people, good listener, love to exchange informations,
    welcoming people, make new friends, give recommendations)

    Kilimanjaro)
    - writing (I'm currently writing a book about a far-distance hike I did)
    - creative (webdesign, drawing, painting)
    - great cooker/baker (I love regional/sustainable food, I love cooking for friends)

    - great organizer (I love to organize events) (...)
    - animal lover (love dogs, cats, horses)

    Why Workaway?
    - I love to dive into cultures and to understand/see how people live around the world
    - I want to make a positiv change in the life of others ( teach, engage, exchange, help)
    - I want to learn new skills, excited to explore the world while helping, sharing ( learn sailing, kite-surfing, doing beach clean-ups, farm-work, teaching in schools, being a tour guide)

    I love:

    I am good in camping, bicycling around countries, hiking, wood cutting would be a
    dream job!

    especially dogs, want to learn horse riding
    - Cities:
    I love to meet people from different cultures, I love dancing Salsa, Bachata,
    Kizomba, Disco Fox (..) open to learn more or get better in those :), Music makes everything
    better, culture (History & Books), architecture (I could help with house building as well, if
    you are happy to teach

    I believe that workaway is a good opportunity to travel, broaden your mind, learn new skills, improve languages and contributing to different communities whilst beeing abroad.

    I love the outdoors as well as vibrant cities.I have grown up In a small village with lots of farmers. I had a dog myself and I like animals in general. Therefore I am not afraid of harsh weather or physical work.

    So far, I already had two workaway experiences in Asia:
    Volunteering in a hostel in northern Vietnam, helping out in the hostel and leading tours, helping out in a safari company in Sri Lanka.

    I am currently in Germany and will start my travels in November.

    Best regards
    Miriam
