My name is Ivar, I'm 21 years old and I'm traveling with Workaway for the past 3 years. In the South of the Netherlands I grew up on a farm. I learned a lot of skills on the farm but I still want to learn a lot more. Two years ago, I finished my study in Antwerp, Belgium. Where I studied to become a baker/pastry chef. Right now I am studying ''International Food And Agricultural Business'' at a university in the Netherlands. I've worked as a barista, waiter, farmer, gardener, baker and as a driver of a front loader. I'm open to new experiences and challenges to learn from! Travelling and meeting new people is something I love! :) Every summer, I hitchhike around Europe and in this way I get even more embraced to what (and who) the country has to offer. I'm open to learn new languages and I have a positive attitude, am open-minded and love philosophy. I like to work precisely and to try new things. But at the end of the day, is having a great time with the people around me what matters :) Feel free to send me a message anytime!!

farming, gardening, baking, cleaning, learning, sociable with children and adults and I am open to learn a lot more skills! See below more detailed information about my skills.
English, Dutch and the basics of French and German
*️️️️️️Farming: I grew up on a farm in the Netherlands and I've worked on a couple other farms as well. I have a tractor-driving license for the work on the bigger farms. But I would like to learn more about organic farming as well. For example: Sustainable farming, permaculture, growing organic food and making homemade products.
*️️️️️️Gardening: I have worked as a gardener for two years and I like to make my hands dirty and the garden clean ;)
*️️️️️️Baking: As a baker I like almost everything about food! I would like to learn how to make local products and local dishes. Next to baking, I like cooking as well and especially together with others :)
*️️️️️️Cleaning: Not that I am in love with cleaning, but I really like to work organized. Cleaning up, so it's easier to work!
*️️️️️️Learning: This is probably one of the best skills you can have. I like it a lot to learn from others! Even when something looks simple, you can still learn a lot from it. I also like to teach others. Like baking a bread can be very fun to learn :)
*️️️️️️sociable with children and adults: I have worked on a camping as animator for children and I really like to do that! I work in a bakery shop and there I am sociable with adults too!
*️When I first traveled via Workaway, I did not tick the box of construction work, but the last 4 summers I have been to the same host every year to work on a impressive building, which is almost finished.
