    Good Workawayer

  • My status


  • Description


    Thank you for visiting my profile! My name is Paulien and I was born (26 years ago) and raised in the Netherlands. I have a bachelor’s degree in Biology but chose to work as a freelance writer and photographer instead.

    At age 18 I had my first workaway experience in a very nice B&B in Southern England and I enjoyed the experience so much that I know like to spend more time that way. Since then, I have met and stayed with many nice people while doing workaways.

    I feel best when I spend most of my time in/surrounded by nature, hiking or cycling or camping. I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes and I like meeting new people.

    I am looking for a place where I can help around 4 hours a day in exchange for food and accomodation. I have experience in animal care and working with guests. I am always willing to learn new tasks, and of course I can provide you with pictures and texts if you'd like that. In my free time I like to work in my business, so either writing on my computer or taking pictures in the outdoors. And when not doing that, I like exploring the area and enjoying being in the outdoors.

    Please send me a message if you think we'd be a good team together!

    I have experience in housekeeping, taking care of guests/tourists/customers, working with animals (horses, dogs, donkeys, cats, smaller pets) and cooking. I am always willing to acquire new skills and help with gardening, maintenance and other tasks. I can provide you with pictures or (blog) texts if you'd like me too. Also, I have experience with Wordpress websites so I could help with that.
