Australia, New Zealand
03/01/2017 - 31/12/2021
I'm a very energetic, easy-going and experienced workawayer - it's become my life! (and allows me to visit my scattered family) My passions are caring for people, gardens, animals and the environment, and learning from people of all ages and cultures.
My English is excellent; French was fluent; Spanish, Italian and Japanese now very basic (due to coronavirus stopping my travels in 2020).
I have now volunteered in 13 countries and 34 workaways: helping with gardening, milking goats, renovating buildings, at retreat centres, with a mobile cafe, caring for children, the elderly and people with chronic illnesses, teaching English, painting ... and lots of cleaning!
After being a teacher of English language for 7 years then spending 15 years in the international aid departments of the Australian and NZ governments, I love meeting people of many nationalities on a more individual basis.
I look forward to meeting you.

Special dietary requirements
No. I can be vegetarian for months on end and prefer lots of fresh vegetables, but I eat what what my hosts eat.
