    Update:
    currently in Portugal for a few weeks.
    Then in early September I plan to travel out to the USA

    Hi,
    I’m Stephen. I live in a rural village in Yorkshire in England.
    I travel frequently and extensively. I love exploring the world and meeting people. Workaway has given me the opportunity to do this and I am a great believer in it. I have carried out work in Europe, Australasia, and Africa.
    I am a keen cyclist and mountaineer, and when I get the chance, I play squash. Over the years I have gathered quite a bit of feedback and this is a great place to see what I have been up to and a little bit about my style.
    I am happy both as a sole Guest and being in the company of other Workawayers as they both bring benefits. I am willing to do any kind of work but am happiest when there is a project or two to fulfil.
    My career has been in Law enforcement in a couple of different guises and I am now a freelance Mountain Leader and Tour Manager for different travel companies. I have grown up children and when I am at home I help them with their projects. I can turn my hands to most things but most importantly I love meeting new people, new cultures and trying out new food.
