    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hello! I am a 25 year old travel enthusiasts from the US. I am almost 4 months in to a European adventure and am currently on a workaway in Frome England. I am backpacking throughout Europe to meet new people and broaden my horizons. I have quit my job and sold my things so I could travel. Allowing me to help you in exchange for an experience (and a cozy place to sleep at night) keeps my wanderlust alive.

    I value many things but work ethic and a positive attitude are definitely at the top of the list. I have found that these two things get me the furthest and make me the happiest at the end of the day. I'm also very easy going and enjoy learning from others, which does not stop at a skill set. I enjoy learning from others thoughts and experiences as well. The people I consider my best friends range from 18 to 70 years of age and I feel this has helped me build a better outlook on life.

    I have enjoyed everything about this adventure and want to make the most of an experience by continuing to immerse in the cultures and doing as the locals do. I hope to see you along the way!
