  • Description

    Hey, I'm Morgane, I'm 24 and traveling is my nยฐ1 goal and source of happiness in life.

    I think working or volunteering is the best way to travel.
    It allows a longer stay and a real, more authentic experience. My best travel memories are from volunteering/working experiences, where I could really connect with the country, its people and culture, all the while contributing to a meaningful project.

    Apart from travelling, I love languages, photography and music.

    I studied languages, mostly English, I love learning about languages because it helps me understand foreign cultures and opens my mind. So wherever I am, I always try to speak the language (at least as much as I can!)

    I'm also a music fan, mostly rock, I love browsing in record shops and playing guitar.

    EXPERIENCE :
    Wwoofing two summers in a row in 2017 and 2018.
    It was in Groningen (northern Holland), in a "eco-hostel", newly settled, so I did all sorts of work from gardening, wood chopping, animal care and all outside jobs, to hostess for the hostel part (welcoming the guests, making breakfast and sometimes dinner, cleaning, taking care of the guests in general etc..)
    It was a unique, very meaningful experience for me which allowed me to develop new skills and connect with amazing people. I loved working in a hostel because it allowed me to meet people from all over the world and I loved the team/family/community atmosphere that was present there.


    In 2020 : I volunteered in 4 different workaways in Italy :
    Hospitality work and gardening in a ranch in Toscana for 3 WEEKS
    All kinds of work in a mountain hostel in Lombardia FOR 5 WEEKS
    Hostel work in Napoli FOR 4 WEEKS
    Hostel and garden work in a B&B in Sicilia FOR 3 WEEKS

    In 2021 : another 4 experiences in Italy
    Permaculture work in a community near Pescara, Abruzzo for 2 weeks
    Permaculture and event organizing in an Ecovillage near Cerveteri, Lazio for 4 WEEKS
    Farm and hospitality work in Sardinia for 2 weeks
    Olive harvest in Sardinia for 2 weeks

    My motto when travelling is "When in Rome, do as the Romans do".
    I know every place is different and I know how to adapt to different environments.


    This description is long enough but I probably forgot many important things so please do not hesitate to message me if you want to know anything else!

  • More details about your skills

    Fluent in French and English, I can help you practice those 2 languages.

    I recently learned how to speak Italian and I've studied Spanish for many years so I understand it and want to practice it!

    I can also do some translation work between French/English/Italian.


    I also really enjoy cooking (and eating ..) so I would gladly cook for you, for the guests and/or the staff. I like trying out new stuff and learning new ways of cooking but also making my own dishes for others. Cuisine is a huge part of a country's culture and I guess my French culture makes it very important for me.

    I'm familiar with all the necessary things of hostel work, like cleaning, being at the reception, make the beds, cleaning some more, explaining the rules and helping out the guest, preparing breakfast etc.. Basically anything that is needed.

    If you have a garden I will gladly take care of it. I have basic knowledge of it and really enjoy spending time outside.
    I used to work in a gardening store so I got used to 'physical' work!

    As said in the description I can do photography, so I can also help you with taking pictures of your place and highlighting it online.

    As for entertainment, if you have a guitar, I'm afraid you might have to hear me play on my off-time..

  • What else ...

    If you're a host in the Canary Islands, please message me I'm available until Summer 2022.

    Could be interested in a workaway in Greece.

    I prefer : hostel and/or farm/gardening work

    If you're a family host : I will not accept 'au pair' work, except if it's just to give paid language lessons.
