  • Description

    I am an honest and reliable single woman enjoying the diversity of our beautiful world.
    I am keen to help others out and through 'Workaway' find ways to contribute my skills. I am a vocational teacher, an avid gardener, enjoy teaching English as a Foreign Language and can cook and clean. Having worked in hospitality for many years I have lots of transferable skills with particular strength in customer service. I am a friendly person who fits into most situations.
    I have been a Workawayer in Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar, Morocco, Poland, Romania, Turkey, Russia, Panama, Costa Rica, and Mexico working in diverse roles including teaching English, hostel customer service, reception, painting, creating, gardening, childcare, cooking and cleaning. I have also lived in Nepal for four months, working for an organisation looking after vulnerable kids. I adapt very quickly to new situations. I have meet lots of wonderful people and there have been so many special experiences.
    I love travelling! I have travelled extensively and enjoy different cultures and the pleasure of exploring. I like to meet new people, experience and learn new things and I would like to continue to learn about life, different cultures and the world. I also enjoy the creative hobbies; the outdoors; swimming, dancing; playing cards, board games, snooker; internet research and reading and writing.
