  • Description

    Hi, I am Nina.
    I am here on Workaway to experience different ways to live, to think, different perspectives on the world. I am looking to expand my horizons and strive to be a mindful person, train empathy and appreciate life. Often in my life, I have found that I am limiting myself due to my perceptions of the world and myself. I am looking to challenge that!

    To me, Workaway is an opportunity of exchange in which both sides have a lot to offer, of culture and language and work, effort and time.

    As a visitor in someone's home, I can respect a person's space and need for distance, but I love to get to know people and will be happy to be social and go for activities together, be it a hike, getting to know the area and its sights or have an evening of card games or music. :) I may sometimes need a moment to "warm up", but I appreciate social time and draw energy from positive encounters. I also really appreciate direct communication.

    Two of my key values are mindfulness (eg. mindfulness practice through meditation) and sustainability (ecological, social etc.).

    You can find information about my skills below. And if you have any more questions about me and my skills that are not answered in my profile, please do not hesitate to ask!

    *Covid edit: I want to meet any concerns about the Covid pandemic with respect and would like for all parties involved to be able to feel safe. I am very thankful that Workaway is still possible and that there are hosts who are open to having people stay and making this possible. I am vaccinated and, if required, don't mind getting tested.

  • More details about your skills

    teaching/working with children - I studied English and History at the University of Vienna and have been working as a language teacher for both English and German. I love to discuss about languages and communication and would always appreciate if someone would like to teach me their language! I have experience working with children and teenagers of all ages between 6 and 18, either teaching or spending free-time.

    farming/gardening/hands-on work - I grew up on a farm in the Austrian countryside and graduated from a school for agriculture and nutrition. Due to my upbringing and various farmstays, I am used to agricultural work and gardening. I am very interested to learn more about permaculture and organic gardening/farming, about sustainable living and self-sustanance through farming and especially natural building! I have worked on farms in Austria and Ireland, in animal husbandry as well as growing plants.
    I certainly don't mind a little mud on me!

    cooking - I enjoy cooking and exchanging recipes and would describe my cooking skills as decent. I was taught cooking and hygiene management at school.
