    Hello I'm Paola,

    I'm a french girl living in my second native country, Germany, where I just finished my Bachelor in Geotechnologies in Berlin.

    I want to help again in a dog sled kennel this winter !!!
    Since I love sled dogs so much, I'd love to find a farm in Europe where I could go back regularly to integrate dog sledding in my life. The dream would be Lappland and Greenland one day.

    Workaway experiences:
    My first workaway experience was just after graduating in 2015, where I travelled for one year in Canada and in the US. I stayed in several ranches for 1 to 3 months and I just loved it. I stayed in a horse breeding ranch and learned proper riding, I stayed in sled dog ranch and learned how to take care of 28 dogs and how to ride the sled with a team and how to ride the snow mobile, I stayed in a horse training site where I learned the basics of training horses on the ground, on the saddle and on a driving waggon, I stayed in a cattle ranch where I learned the cowboy/cowgirl lifestyle, how to take care of the cattle (mostly on horseback).
    Check out my feedback or ask me if you want to know more details.

    I love the ranching lifestyle and now that I finished my first degree, I want to do some of it again :)!

    What I like most about people, is their good heart, their openness to other ideas and their honesty about themselves.

    If you want to ask something, go ahead :)
