My name is Sven Etienne, I am 23 years old and grew up near Deventer, the Netherlands. I have studied mathematics, managed to get a bachelors and then started working on a traditional Dutch flat bottem ship (called a "tjalk") as a mate - and now I am looking forward to traveling via workaway in the winter.
What I am looking forward to is the traveling, having a good time with the hosts/locals (the "gezelligheid" we'd say in the Netherlands, but this word is difficult to translate), and learning some new things. Concerning the last, I am interested in all kinds of things but in particular I'd like to learn something about woodwork.
I am a quite person. I enjoy sailing, playing card/board games, cooking and music. I am a vegetarian. I speak Dutch, English and a little bit German. I don't have a drivers license.
On boats I learned to do some basic maintenance like painting, greasing the winches, splicing ropes, replacing the filters of an engine, applying sealants, replacing electrical wiring... I'm not the most practical person but with a few words of advice I can do a lot of odd jobs.
