    Hi there! My name is CQ

    Im from Singapore and in 2021, Im working as a product designing and swimming coach while waiting for my flying training in Aussie. Been doing workaway for several years in the past and now Im back again to explore more places!

    My current plan is to visit Canada from end sept - dec when their borders are open.

    A little about me: Having grown up in the small city life of Singapore, Im always fascinated by the world out there and places I can explore. After my uni studies in mechanical engineering, I took a gap year to backpack Asia, Europe and Africa. While travelling, I came across workaway projects and it has totally changed the way I travel! It allowed me to spend more time with locals and help out with interesting projects which were some of the best experiences in my life. From then on, I became a huge fan of workaway.

    Some of my workaway experiences:
    -Bamboo harvesting in Shizouka, Japan
    -Hostel work in Osaka, Japan
    -Cafe assistance in Hanno, Japan
    -Cabin lodge construction in Joensuu, Finland
    -English summer camp in Barnual, Russia (My fav!)
    -Organic Farming in Yilan, Taiwan
    -English language exchange in Hanoi, Vietnam
    -Revamping vehicle project in Oosteind, Netherlands
    -Private school teaching in Rusinga Island, Kenya
    -Hostel work in Jeffreys Bay, South Africa
    -Brewery and bartending work in Nieu Bethesda, South Africa
    -Camping assistance in Rhodes Island, Greece
    -Guesthouse work in Ezuz, Israel

    Activities/Interests that I enjoy:
    Discovering new things
    Exploring unknown places
    Learning new cultures
    Water sports (Scuba diving, freediving, kayaking, swimming)
    Most outdoor sports (Rock climbing, bouldering, trekking, biking)
    Animal care
    Looking after little kids
    Spontaneous decisions!
    Volunteering/Humanitarian aids

    My life goal is to compile all the amazing experiences I've came across throughout my adventures and create a platform/opportunity for others to explore their own dream path too. It can be a project on resolving poverty, providing educational opportunies, community for similiar travellers or something along that line(Love to hear anyone's input/ideas!)

    And also, to build my dream house somewhere in the world (:
