    Good Workawayer

  • My status


  • Description

    I`m Anke and I`m born and raised in Germany.
    Living abroad in China for more than 5 years I returned to Germany a few years ago to start working at an elementary school teaching children. I enjoy working with children very much, at the time I recently started to get the feeling that is is time for me to break the routine again.
    Therefore I quit my job to set of travelling. I want to explore the world, experience other places, cultures and people while doing something meaningful. I want to help others, get engaged in new acitivies, learn a new language. I want to dicover my potential and find out more about myself, hoping to discover more of who I am and what I want. I want to follow my dreams and curiosity in order to find inner peace.
    Quite philosophical but thats how it is :)

    In my daily live I enjoy art, culture, reading classic literature, drawing, riding my bike and taking photos. I love animals and nature, I enjoy gardening as well as building someting.
    I am a very warmhearted and enthusiastic person. I am open, friendly and realiable. I enjoy meeting new people, at the same time I can lose myself in a book or in strolling through the woods by myself.

    Without any plans or schedules I am happy to find out where life is taking me next.
