Salut, ça va?
I would like to live in France for a while - to get to know the country and its pepole & to improve my language skills by doing voluntary or paid work in various fields of activity.
I'm an outgoing person, who almost always likes meeting new people. In terms of interpersonal interaction, I treasure politeness, empathy, humor, patience, courage, and a certain facination for (human)beings and life in general (among other values). I enjoy having long chats - as much as silent moments, too (it's great when communication flows seemingly unintented from one subject to another with happy silence in between, I think).
I enjoy hiking, dancing, doing sports (almost any kind), going on literary and 'real' adventures (even tho I agree that the term 'reality' as a concept can be discussed) and I'm especially interested in topics such as social systems, soccer, humanity, environment and sharks.
I would like to work hard in order to support you in everyday life, help you maintaining your garden & property.... - and share a home & food in return.
Since I never had the experience of being abroad for a longer period of time, I am excited to take a deep dive in another/your culture. I loved learning french in school, and have great memories of several vacations with my family in France .
I am curious about new views on the world and ways of living and love to learn new skills and widen my expertise and approach on new fields.
I have no issues with both simple and complex work and I’m not quickly getting tired of what I’m doing.
I am a thoughtful and polite person who enjoys meeting new people and learn all about their interests and what drives them.
I am patient and not afraid to ask, in case I don‘t understand something immediately.
I like being outdoors and don't mind getting my hands dirty.
Since a few years I'm reducing my impact on our beautiful planet. Among other things I'm trying to understand what it really is that I need in my everyday life and as a humanbeing in general in order to combine personal happiness and the well being of my surroundings.
My passions are musicculture and art. I played in several bands over many years (not anymore) and I studied timebased media which is design related.
After a long and beautiful day I like to cook for others and myself.
