  • Description

    Hi there! I am Vanessa :)
    I am from Andorra (the little country of the pyrenees) and I have been living in Barcelona and Paris for the past 12 years.
    I had a great time living in this cities but it’s time for me now to have a break from it and deep dive into the natural world, discover new cultures, landscapes and most of all, people!
    It’s my first big work break and I am very excited to develop new skills and let my creativity recharge. I am in the middle of a career switch and I can’t imagine a better way to expand my vision of the future then travelling!
    My wish is to travel around Europe from July to October. Meanwhile traveling and discovering new locations and lifestyle I want to seize the opportunity to help and learn in sustainable and social impact projects.
    It’s now my turn to give back to the world :)

    So if anyone needs some guidance on creating happy and productive work environment, I can definitely help on that.

    Other skills from past experience and my own interests are anything related to housekeeping, cooking, cleaning, child care and any other work around the house.
    I am very sociable and love to talk to new people. I am fluent in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Catalan (the official language in Andorra!). So any work facing clients will be good for me :)
    Regarding sports. I like to practice regularly yoga and hiking, and I am open to any outdoor experience.
    I have just a little experience on gardening, handyman, farming and animal care. But I am a fast learner and not afraid of hard work. I would love to get more connected to the nature and physical work so please, help me developing this new skills.
