  • Description

    Hi! I'm Sam, from the South Island of New Zealand but currently living in the Unterfranken region of Germany. After finishing uni in 2015 I spent 2016 studying Mandarin in Beijing, and during that time I travelled a little in Thailand and Malaysia. In 2017 I did workaway at two hotels in Germany and one hostel in Italy trying to absorb as much language and meeting as many people as possible before starting my degree.

    I am about to finish my MA here in Germany and have decided to try more workaway to help me decide what to do next! I am mostly looking for teaching or outdoors related work experience in Germany, but I'm pretty open to anything!

    My hobbies are running, cooking, eating, and I also play the oboe. I like travelling and exploring places on my own, but I'm also a very social person & will talk with anyone! :^)
