  • Description

    I'm Benedikt, 34 years old. Born and raised in Germany I spent a large amount of the last 12 years traveling, stopping in between to refund.
    Traveling is like an addiction to me. The more I do it, the more inspiration I get, where to go next. I try to travel as sutainable as possible, avoiding airplanes whenever possible and rather rely on public transport, hitchhiking, boats... I also did quite a big portion of my travels human powered, either by bicycle, hiking or on a kayak.
    I love nature and spend a lot of time outdoors.
    I try to always learn new things, especially languages interest me a lot and quite often you'll find me behind a book.
    Other interests of mine include sports, yoga, meditation, sustainable living, permaculture, degrowth, technology, etc...

  • What skills do you have?

    I have a good work ethic and am a hands-on person with a strong get-things-done mentality and don't fear to get my hands dirty
    I did an apprenticeship on an organic farm in Germany and spent a lot of time working on different farms and permaculture projects on different parts of the planet.
    So I got many skills agricultural related: milking, using machinery, fencing, chopping wood, crop management, etc.
    I also do know my way around most powertools, including chainsaws and welders and did a little bit of electric works and plumbery here and there as well.
    During the last I worked in different fields of gastronomy, from being a expedition chef for a group of cyclist in Central Asia, over being an assistant chef in a 4 star hotel, to being a restaurant manager in Africa.
    I'm also quite good with computers and am currently learning web development
    I also do speak English and German fluently and a moderately well French, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian
