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 fluent; Spanish, Italian and Japanese quite basic.
I have now volunteered in 12 countries and 30 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.
