  • Description

    Hi there, my name's Alan. I'm a French-English traveller and amateur linguist looking to travel and work to learn new skills, practice languages and explore cultures.

    I'm currently on my 11th WorkAway and counting. As far as skills are concerned, I've worked in lemon groves, olive gardens, a ginseng plantation, a hostel and a restaurant kitchen, helped build an outbuilding, trimmed tree branches, and shifted and stacked lumber. I have previous experience tutoring English and German. I'm happy with any kind of work and will always do it to the best of my abilities. As a person I'm very easy going and I'm sure I can get on with just about anyone, anywhere!
