  • Description

    Who am I?
    Hi there! I'm retired and I love to travel, meet people, discover and learn! I've done a lot of traveling most of it outdoors. Real nature guy so to speak. I’ve heard about workaway from a host last year and decided that’s the way I want to travel for at least a year. It seems to me that this is a way I can travel at an easy pass, best learn about new cultures and the way of life at different parts of our beautiful planet.
    I grew up on a farm with cattle and agriculture. I didn’t follow my dad’s footsteps but I'm a very skillful guy who always sees possibilities and I'm very creative in my approach. I’m physically fit and strong and I can’t wait to get started.
    When can you expect me?
    As of September 2018 I'm as free as a bird and able to travel anywhere that I'm needed. I would like to travel from Alaska to Australia via North and South Amerika but I have no travel plans as of yet so feel free to contact me if you want to suggest a destination where I can contribute.
    I keep myself in a good condition, by playing golf, hiking and riding my bike. I have a huge garden which takes up a lot of my time. I'm a hands on person. In short, I'm hardworking and not afraid to get my hands dirty. If you need a positive, creative person who is willing to help just drop a line and I will get back to you.
