My name is Viola, I finished my studies back in Germany. In my future I am going to work in Highschool, teaching maths and physics. Because I probably will be working in the same job for a long time I decided to travel before I start working properly.
I started my travels in february in Cuba, went to México, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Colombia. Right now I went back to Costa Rica - let´s see where I am going to be next.
I didn´t speak a single word of spanish, when I arrived in Cuba - but now I am able to communicate and mostly get what I want to get.
I worked in a few hostels the last months and I loved working there. I did murals, worked at the reception, worked in the kitchen, worked at a bar! I just love to stay at places longer - so you can get to know the vibe of the village, the city, the forest, the people, the hostel or where ever you are.
I love to be with people, eighter talking, playing games, drinking wine or beer or just watch random people. :)
During my studies I tried to learn sewing - but just by selfstudies. But at least I created already a few sweaters, scarfs, skirts. Back in Germany I played volleyball in a team and i gave courses to younger children. I love to play beachvolleyball!
I already stayed in Kenia in an orphange and did take care of very young babies, although I worked in a kindergarden before.
I really like to cook and get to know new local food and how to prepare it.
Because I studied maths and physics I shouldn't be that bad in calculating. But I am also able to do manual labour.
