  • Description

    As a wise man once said, "It's a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to."

    Hi, thanks for taking the time to read my profile.

    My name is Nele and I am currently studying philosophy and political science. With almost 2 months of holidays coming up, I would love to take some time to travel again, see new places and spend some time in nature.

    Between 2018 and 2019 I travelled through Europe for 9 months, using almost exclusively workaway. During that time, I've mainly worked in hostels, private households and on farms. It has been one of the best times of my life (so far) and I have to admit that I might have become quite addicted to traveling. ;)

    I really enjoy outdoor work and I don't mind getting dirty or performing physical work. My greatest skill is certainly my ability to learn, so whatever needs to be done in your place, I'm willing to give it a try.
    In my freetime, I enjoy walks in nature, hiking, climbing, reading, music, cooking and conversations of any kind (some of my interests are literature, art, film, history, philosophy and politics) but I also like to have some time to myself sometimes.

    I hope I will make a meaningful addition to your place as well.

    Hopefully I'll see you soon!
