Hello dear hosts,
I am looking for longer term stays (min 2 weeks) so I can really experience a place and the culture.
I am originally from Hastings which is location on the south east coast of England. I have traveled to/ visited 43 countries. My number one goal in life is to travel. The itchy feet don't seem to be going away any time soon so I thought I would sign up for workaway.
I am independent, courageous and capable individual with a zest for life. I love meeting new people and I am very comfortable working with different cultures. As a mental health worker for complex needs I developed excellent communication skills both verbal and non-verbal. I am currently taking time out to practice self care as the job is very rewarding, it's also very taxing on my well being.
I also have 20 years experience in the hospitality and catering industry. I was attached to the military for 12 years I managed arrange of catering establishments: Bars/ coffee shops/ cafes/ fish n chip shops/ fast food outlets/ burger stalls/ retail shops (spar shops) and a bowling alley. In very challenging conditions.
I also successfully managed two public houses in the UK, whilst there was a pub closing every week.
My focus in life is to be happy, joyful and love my life. I am a fun loving individual, who always looks on the positive side of any situation.
I thrive on life challenges, excellent problem solver. Love to learn new things (especially languages but I seem to forget as soon as I leave the country) always growing to be the best I can be. Also inspire others to be the best they can be.
My favorite quote is :
"Our prime purpose in this life is to help others, and if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them" by Dalai Lama.
Look forward from hearing from the great people on workaway,

I grew up in a town called Battle (of Hastings), 1066 country in England. I love history and exploring old ruins castles, abbeys etc. I love walking and hiking. I will get lost in a good book, I prefer this over television. I would like to meet people who maybe are living of the grid and are self reliant, as this amazes me and I am interested in the struggles that you might of incurred to obtain this goal.
