  • 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 Business Administration and IT 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 and Russia working in diverse roles including teaching English, hostel customer service, reception, painting, 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 outdoors, swimming, dancing; playing cards, board games, snooker; internet research and reading and writing.
