    Good Workawayer

  • My status


  • Description

    I’m Martina and I live mostly in Davos in the Swiss mountains. I’m 40 and have been working for many years in winter at the ticket desk of a cable car. In the summer months I often travel. I love to meet people and hear their stories. Many of them inspired me a lot.

    Originally, I had an office job, but I preferred to have more contact with people. I worked in a bakery, cooked, baked and served the guests in a small mountain restaurant. I did an internship in child care and much more. Occasionally I clean holiday flats.

    My hobbies are skiing and snowboarding, hiking, swimming, mountain biking, reading, cooking and I have practiced yoga for years. During my trips I prefer to travel by bicycle or on foot. For three months I hiked across the Alps (Via Alpina) and cycled across Canada and Europe.

    I describe myself as an open-minded person who likes to learn new things and who is able to tackle them. For a long time I have dreamt of a workaway to combine many of my interests: Living with nature, animals, gardening and maybe even self-sufficiency. I would love to learn about permaculture, practice yoga and meditation and also very much want to learn Italian.
