I am currently
My next destination:Costa Rica - from Jan 2023 until Mar 2023 View all
my name is Sylvana and I am 42 years old (but still physically and mentally feeling like 29 :) )
At the moment I am living in Görlitz/Germany and work in a hotel at the front desk and also help out on the bar in our restaurant when needed. Actually I do all types of work in the hotel and the restaurant..I also check the rooms, prepare breakfast, and are responsible to arrange any events in our restaurant, etc.
In the past I worked in Austria, in seasonal jobs in Hotels in Ski areas. My last position there was as a restaurant manager in a 4 diamond hotel. In November 2016 I came back from an amazing one year work and travel adventure in Canada and a 4 month visit in Australia and Thailand. I worked on two farms ( gardening, taking care of animals, horse riding, cooking, etc.) and a scuba dive Resort as a volunteer ( building, cooking, taking care of guests, etc) and in a four diamond hotel in Banff as a room service server. I traveled, and later worked on Lanzarote/Canaria Islands in a 5 diamond hotel as server for 8 month in 2017, and visited Nepal (cooking, harvesting, gardening, child care) and Vietnam for travel and volunteering two years later. I like to try different kinds of work because I think its more fun and also great for finding out any secret skills I might have:)
I always had such a great time on my trips, especially volunteering; working outside, with animals and being so close to nature and staying with locals is what I find is amazing . I really love to travel and meeting new interesting and inspiring people.
I have a relaxed persona and like to laugh, I am positive thinking and am interested in spirituality, nature, yoga, sport and all kinds of creative things. but I am also highly motivated to work ( not afraid to get my hands dirty) and to get lots of new work experiences in different countries. My next trip will be in Costa Rica until the end of march..
