    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hi, I´m Vincent :) I grew up in a small village in eastern Germany. My parents have a farm with cows, chicken, pigs, cats and a dog. As I was a child I played always outside or helped them with work. Later I did a volunteer service for one year in Serbia. I taught german in a school and organized a lot of projects with my pupils. After this I started studying economics. It was my big dream since I was in primary school. I study in Würzburg, its a small city in Bavaria/Germany. In case of my studies at university I have a lot of time to travel. I love to be outdoor. Last year in summer I worked as an outdoor guide for canoeing and hiking in Sweden. Now I´m in an exchange semester in St. Petersburg/Russia. St. Petersburg is a really big city, for my to big. I feel that it is time to come down somewhere away from big city life.
    If I should describe myself I would say that I´m inquisitive, open minded, responsible, realistic and be able to cope with everything.
    I don´t like to describe myself, but I know thats really necessary here.. ;)
    My hobbies, if I´m in Germany, are travelling, playing piano, sometimes organ, playing basketball, playing Skat (german card game) and hanging out with friends.
    For me it´s always interesting to feel the difference and find a compromise between economic thinking in studies and spent (or "waste", of course not!) time with volunteering or travelling.
    With work away I want to improve my english skills, work outside, be in the nature and learn with and about other people.
    Have a look to my couchsurfing profile for more information :)
