I am currently
Activities i am interested in:
Traveling, nature, hiking, horses, healthy lifestyle, psychology, personal development/spiritual growth
My next destination:Catalunya, Spain - from Sep 2022 until Dec 2022 View all
I would like to gain experiences from different ways of living and learn new skills while I could help doing something meaningful. I've been a passionate about traveling for some years, but here and now I feel I would like to try something different than just traveling for a "traditional" holiday and gain more authentic experiences, learn about cultures, languages and find deeper connections and purpose that I haven't managed to find this superficial 9-17 rat race.
Nature is is a source of happiness for me and I love hiking and exploring nature wonders. Healthy lifestyle that includes balanced diet and being active are basic elements of my everyday life. I like reading about psychology, spirituality and personal development and talk about topics around it. I love deep and meaningful conversations.
At the end of 2021 I rediscovered my passion for horses after 20+ years of quitting this hobby. Being around and taking care of these amazing creatures brings me so much joy. I would like to learn more about natural horsemanship and groundwork to be able to handle horses they way they deserve. I like animals in general and I have interest learning to take care of other species as well, not just horses. Sustainable and self-sufficient living/farming/ecovillages/communities are something I'm interested as well and want to learn. I don't feel like this "normal" way of living is for me and I would like to see how living and working in a ecovillage or grid-of community would be.
*Plans for the autumn 2022: Looking for a host and like-minded travelers
At the end of September 2022, I’m planning to leave my country for a while, probably first going to Spain and maybe later to Latin America. I would like to do volunteering for longer periods, from 1-6 months or maybe even longer, if things work out well. I’m going to apply for studies, that are possible to do online and if I get accepted, I could work about 15 hours/ week and study the rest of the time. Therefore I would need a decent internet connection and space to study online. I can also use my mobile data, if the coverage is good. Work schedule can be flexible, since mainly the studies are not tied in any specific hours, but I need to invest time on it.
Mainly I’m interested to do physical work on a farm or a place, close to the nature, with animals, preferably horses. I’m eager to learn more about self-sustainability, farming gardening, animals and different kinds ways of living. I recently did my 1st volunteering in Catalonia, where I spend 8 weeks working on a small farm, where I worked with horses as well.
I’m hoping to have volunteering experiences, that combines doing meaningful work and find connections with people and be part of the community/family, I’m working with.
