    Top Workawayer

  • Description

    Despite my age I am a fit, enthusiastic female. I am hardworking, cheerful and reliable. After many years in the RAF I decided to now have a few years as a Workawayer for long or short periods. Over the last 6 years I have volunteered gardening, working with animals, birds and teaching children in England and abroad so am used to adapting to different environments and like to be outside. I completed my 7h Workaway in March 2014 at a school in the Nepalese Himalayas where I tutored Nepalese children in English and maths and also helped the host with painting and decorating and have just completed my 15th Workaway in Portugal. I have also worked at farms and smallholdings in the UK and Europe which involved gardening and vegetable growing and harvesting.

  • What else ...

    I am a happy, optimistic, independent person who is kind and considerate and respectful of other people. Willing to 'muck in' to get jobs done. I am definitely not a hedonist but even though I have lovely family and friends in England (including a grown up son and Granddaughter), I like to travel and get the most out of life. I like to learn new skills and put them into use as you can see from above. Please take the time to consider me and I hope to hear from you soon. Odette
