  • Description

    Hey. I am Vinny.

    I am very much a social creature and I really like meeting new people and being helpful when I can.

    I have worked in hospitality for many years and in tourism for approximately 5 years. I love working as a tour guide as it gives me the opportunity to do many things that I love, such as learning about history, culture and languages, travelling, and sharing all of these passions and wonderful experiences with others.

    I am a huge fan of music and I like to play guitar and sing. I enjoy the outdoors, animals, hiking, camping, kayaking, climbing, playing some sports and just enjoying nature. I enjoy chilling out with a movie too.

    I really enjoy travelling to new places and have visited more countries in Europe than I haven't. I like quizzes, escape rooms, and anything that challenges my brain, and I enjoy social games too, such as charades, Pictionary, poker and others. I enjoy cooking and being innovative in the kitchen.

    I have a BA in Philosophy with creative writing, a certificate in Radio broadcasting, and have also attended courses in Outdoor activity instructing and Bar and restaurant skills.

    I found out bout workaway from a couchsurfer who stayed with me in 2019. I hosted around 60 people in my tiny apartment over the course of about 11 weeks that summer in Galway, Ireland, and a few more in Autumn 2020 in my home town of Ballina, and hosting was one of the best things I ever did. The people I met were wonderful and we shared great times together. I believe the people on workaway share a similar philosophy and I am looking forward to meeting many of them now that I have joined the platform.

    I have been living with a Swedish family for my time here in Sweden and this has helped me learn about the culture and to practice my Swedish, and I am looking forward to meeting more Swedes and learning even more in the coming months.
