  • Description

    For the last three years I have been living and working in London and not travelling but I'm now coming back to Workaway. I would like to eventually leave urban living behind and live a simpler, more sustainable life, closer to nature and I think Workaway can offer that and also give valuable experience and skills.
    My favourite workaway experience was staying in an eco-village in Finland for two months, which I found very inspiring and I went back the following year. I also did a few other Workaways in Europe, including helping on an Estonian sheep farm and looking after horses for a family in Germany.
    I love being in nature, hiking in mountains and swimming in lakes and the sea. I also like music and films. In the past I made electronic music and recently I have taken up watercolour painting.
    I'm a hard working person and am willing to try most kinds of work but am particularly interested in things relating to self-sustainability such as growing food, permaculture, eco-building.
