After leaving my financial trading jobs 9 years ago , I have traveled much and experienced even more. In those 9 years i refined my ways of travelling to become slower and spending more time in one place. I have spent 2 years working in Spain in hostels and as an English Teacher. Im always looking for a workaway experience where I can meet new people, make new friends, challenge myself and share good times. In my new cycling trip to Spain im looking for a place to settle and live and one day would I dream to run a bar or restaurant.
I have worked in a hostel in Malaga for 5 months, volunteered in hostels and guest houses in Santiago de Compostela, Gran Canaria, Malaysia, Spain, Japan, Chile, Argentina and Colombia. I really enjoy working in reception but also work well in cleaning, bed making, cooking and a small bit of maintenance.
Last year in Patagonia I have helped with constructing a tourist cabana in Puerto Natales and have helped with English teaching and cooking in Melimoyu and finally just 2 weeks in a hostel in the very North east of Colombia,
The year previous to that I spent 3 months in a Great hostel in Gran Canaria before teaching English in Japan and then Colombia.
My Spanish is, i think, close to fluent now. I have also been a walking guide in Levico, Italy while a holiday representative for TUI, and done some mountain bike guiding in Lagos Portugal.
I spend a lot of time keeping fit and quite a bit of time preparing food, I like to cycle, swim, run, some Nintendo Wii working out, and some muscle workouts. love dancing by myself. Read the odd book, watch the odd film, arrange the odd flower.
I have many skills but can be described as a good all-rounder, although i cant sing and my artistic side leans heavily towards abstraction.
