I love travelling, waking up in a new place and exploring the area. I decided I want to lead a semi-nomadic lifestyle so that I get to travel as much as I can. This year I travelled to Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Ireland, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Morocco, the Netherlands...
I love reading, spending time in nature, I love animals and being around them. I’m into personal development & spirituality.
I look forward to my next workaway experience!
I grew up on a farm in Poland surrounded by animals and nature, moved to the UK when I was in my early 20s, I worked as an au-pair to start with, then I looked after disabled and elderly people here in the UK. I completed my studies in London (MA in Translation) and am a freelance translator and proofreader. I did telephone interpreting, taught English one-to-one and via Skype, worked in an office for a charity in the UK, invigilated exams.
I have experience in teaching English as a foreign language (I've tought over 300 hours) and my preference is to teach adults.
I am good at explaining grammar features and I am very patient.
I had a greenhouse and grew my own vegetables at one point, I love animals, especially cats, dogs and donkeys.
I like cooking (don't cook with meat for myself anymore but I do eat it from time to time); Love vegetarian and vegan food.
I practice yoga (did Iyengar and Bikram), would like to volunteer in a yoga place to practice more.
I now eat mostly plant-based food and I am trying to be creative with my cooking:
