Living and working in Madrid, currently. Seeking good, honest people to share some time with this summer. Open to new experiences.
I use workaway to learn, to grow, and to make the world feel smaller. Right now, my objective is to improve my language skills, especially French. I studied law in the UK a few years back. Since graduating, I have followed my interests in languages an travel.
The main skill that I can exchange is languages (English or Spanish): I have worked in Madrid and Italy with lawyers, journalists, economists, University students and young learners. I am good with people and take pride in whatever work I do. Otherwise, I am good with manual tasks, cooking, driving, cleaning, admin and computers. In any case I offer my enthusiasm and collaboration.
Good, healthy food is important to me and I think that 'eat well and be merry' is a good mantra to have. Being active and reading fill a lot of my time. I am currently trying to master a perfect handstand, love swimming in the sea and being in nature and I try to read books from different languages and cultures.
As for anything else, get in contact with me so I can elaborate or answer anything in particular. I will respond quickly.
Thanks for taking an interest.
