  • Description

    Hey!) I'm Kate from the most west part of Russia - Kaliningrad (former Kenigsberg), I'm 42.

    Last year I realized that I didn't get this experience in my life - live and work in other country. That's why I'm here on workaway.
    I've started with workaway just this year, I've worked in school in Poland in January, in B'n'b small hotel (cleaning and gardening) in Tenerife in February and helped with 4 kids family in Barcelona in March.
    So I already have some experience with workaway.

    Also for me it's great opportunity to see how the life is different in different countries and to try as much jobs as po And also it's the best way to teach him English.
    What to say about my life?
    I learnt to play piano and violin in music school and then learnt as opera singer in high music school.
    Then I decided to change and entered the Architecture Academy and learnt as designer of graphic .
    Then with my ex-husband we started our business , we made signs for shops etc.
    I opened 8 shops of souvenirs.
    Then I decided to change one more time and after gave a birth my 3rd son I started to provide excursions to the National park Curonian spit as private tour-guide.
    So now I want to go somewhere else and find what I want to do next.
    I'm Ambassador of couchsurfing in Kaliningrad, Russia and most experienced person in my home region. From 2012 I hosted more than 400 persons (from all over the world), traveled 48 times and organized 118 meetings by couchsurfing. I got 527 references. You can find full list at my profile couchsurfing.com/people/porunova
    My ideal place to go is:
    warm weather and walkable distance to water;
    not so much insects;
    accommodation plus local food and local fruits;
    work with tourists / as photographer / singer.
