    Good Workawayer

  • My status


  • Description

    Hello! I am a 28 year old Primary School Teacher , Sailing Instructor, Cyclist and musician originally from the Highlands of Scotland. I am also a language and culture lover and Since finishing university I have also lived in Brittany in France, Quebec and Galicia in Spain, learning to speak other languages and experience amazing cultures!

    After being very lucky to have the chance to work in Menorca as a sailing instructor this summer, I have returned to Galicia, cycling across Spain! Some photos about that adventure here if it’s of interest 🙂:

    I find myself at a bit of crossroads now where I probably will return to the U.K. soon for the winter but it seems a shame to at least not spend a bit more time to learn about and experience the amazing culture, people and landscapes of Northern Portugal !

    Cheers and thanks for reading.
