  • Description

    I am a friendly individual who loves meeting new people and trying new things. For me, Workaway is the perfect opportunity to learn new skills, help make a difference, and of course create amazing experiences with new friends.
    For over a year I have been travelling with Workaway. The great places and - most of all - lovely people I've met because of Workaway mean I cannot wait to continue travelling and helping this January. I will be going to Portugal for the first time and I'm already looking forward to seeing the country, eating the food and meeting the people.

  • What skills do you have?

    Being friendly and happy to communicate with anyone is so important. I see myself as honest and reliable: someone who is on time and keeps promises. I am always looking to try something different and I enjoy learning a new skill.
    From my Workaway experiences so far, as well as my previous jobs, I have experience of;
    - Working in gardens (planting, moving, weeding etc.)
    - Cleaning, from normal day to day jobs through to deep cleaning an entire room (I also used to work in a hotel!)
    - Helping with big projects like knocking down walls or refurbishing a room
    - Looking after and walking two or three dogs at a time or helping with other animals

  • What else ...

    Improving my German, Italian or learning some Spanish would be really good. Being involved in the local community somehow is also something I'd enjoy.
