    Activities i am interested in:

    Interested in meeting up with anyone who feels a connection with the content in my profile. I love meeting new people & learning about the differences we have in culture if you have 5-star reviews!

  • Description

    Travelling and volunteering work for me because I love to do good deeds for others by helping them and taking care of things. Naturally, I am a kind person so telling jokes, teasing and laughing is an easy way for me to bring a smile to the face of other people. It is important to see the light side by making and telling jokes and having fun.

    Thinking of novel and productive ways to conceptualise and do things with the resources we have at hand is something that gives lots of rewards I think. Mastering new skills, topics and bodies of knowledge formally or by myself is driven by the strength of my curiosity which often goes beyond it to describe the tendency to add systematically to what I already know. I tend to speak up for what’s right even when there is opposition, acting on my convictions even if they are unpopular. So new things don't make me shrink or create difficulty, I love the challenge.

    Working as part of a team or leading a team, my focus is always on how we get things done at the same time to maintain good relations within the group, by making sure things happen. Personally, I try not to take any risks and spend time making good choices. Being genuine is important to me and sincerely presenting oneself is also important to the experience I hope to have and share, being responsible for my feelings and actions. I strongly value close relations with others, especially with those who care and share with me.

    My ideas for travelling and volunteering come from knowing what to do to fit into a different social situation and what makes other people tick. Learning about the culture and how people live fascinates me, learning how other people have become successful in their personal goals inspires me and influences me a great deal.

    Just now I am seeking the best future and new experiences one can during the Global Pandemic, I know that hosts seek understanding volunteers and I believe that we could both benefit by working to achieve it, we could all use a little more hope just now.

    Approaching life with excitement and energy with the whole heart is important right now!
    Let's keep the adventure alive and stay activated by being thankful for the good things that have happened and by taking the time to express gratitude.

    I look forward to answering any of your questions.

  • What else ...

    A few of my favourite things are breakfast, chatting, cinema & quiet time.
    I like breakfast a lot actually, but I can't just write breakfast breakfast breakfast, can I?

    I enjoy cooking by myself or for people, sometimes I like to play video games to zone out if I am working in a stressful environment. Enjoying the silence outside in nature & watching the world go by.

    Changing environments interest me the most, the best version of me loves problem-solving, focusing on how to make things better & run more efficient.

    Love hanging out with children & doing creative things like painting, writing or board games. At the moment I am a big fan of Snickers and learning about the hydrological consequences of climate change.
