  • Description

    Hi! I'm Cora, and I'm travelling for learning, to discover new cultures, traditions and ways of living, and to find my way and purpose in life.
    I'm a quiet person, peaceful, shy, creative and tidy; I have lots of patience and perseverance, and though Im not very talkative I like to learn and hear new ideas and points of view. I love to work with animals and plants and to do things with my hands, and I'm looking forward to learn more about self sustainable and nature friendly lifestyles,
    horticulture,medicinal plants, ecological building, manufacture of ceramic pottery and soap... I'm also interested in Celtic heritage and healthy cooking.
    I have been doing volunteering for more than three years, and it has been a great experience so far. Within this volunteer experience I've done things like farming (taking care of diverse animals like goats, hens, sheep, horses, ducks); horse communication; making diverse crafts with wood and branches, like doors and fences; gardening, weeding, potting and growing seeds on a polytunnel; harvesting and packing veggies and fruits; medicinal herbal infusion making; some construction work like putting insolation pannels, covering a wall with clay, restoring an old stone wall, sanding and painting; also some hostel work, clearing and organising sheds..

    Fond of medieval times, fantasy, celtic heritage and sword mastery; I used to do medieval sword fighting. I love mythology, mysticism and legends. I like being close to nature and having some time for myself; however I also enjoy spending the evening with more people and share experiences. I love music, specially celtic/ irish/ folk/ medieval; I play violin, drums and a bit flute and guitar, but I'm very keen about learning to play new instruments like harp, hurdy gurdy or aulos.
