    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    I am flying into Tokyo on the 10th October 2019, I plan on getting fully immersed in the Japanese culture and way of life! I am spending the winter in Niseko making the most of the amazing snow. For the rest of my time I want to volunteer and help out in all sorts of projects, communities and everything else in between!! I used workaway all through Europe and quickly realised its such a fun and practical way of travelling. My previous employment consists of welding and fabricating, GRP laminating, bar and hotel work and landscape gardening. So I am fully adept in many skills which are all easily transferable. I am eager to learn new skills on my travels and hope I can pass my ones on to people I meet on my way.

    I have always loved traveling and meeting new people. I've backpacked all through Europe by myself. the amount of places I got to see and the amazing people I got to meet inspired me to travel more and more. From that I went to work two winter seasons in the French alps, this is where I grew to love the mountains and got into snowboarding. I grew up on a small island in the south of England, its a very scenic and quiet place to live. From this I grew to love the outdoors and feel at home amongst nature.
