    LATEST UPDATE: I am vaccinated and ready to hot the road again after 1 year.
    Hi my new potential host!
    I’m Quin, bilingual ( English and Dutch) and I have been workawaying for the last 3 years.
    I have seen all continents and lived in interesting places with local families/ hosts ( Australia, Tasmania, Brasil, Hawai, New Zealand, Canada, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, Southern Europe, UK and,Ireland,Thailand, USA, and many many more to write down...)
    Native: English and Dutch (Dutch in school, English at home because of my international family)
    I have a TEFL and TESOL degree.
    Good: Italian
    Basic: French
    Enough to survive: German, Portuguese, Spanish, Afrikaans.
    Understanding :English, Dutch, Italian, French, Spanish, Afrikaans, Portuguese and German.
    I have Facebook and whatsapp for faster and easier contact.
    I'm looking for accomodation (experiencing the local life in your region) in exchange for working or helping at your place.
    The village of Lortet in the French Pyrenees (I've been back 10 times already) was my first workaway and due to this positive feeling and experience, I kept on doing this format.
    These hosts are like a 2nd family.
    You can see my references/feedback from most of my previous hosts down below.
    I am honest, direct ( can be positive or negative) , I like to help people and energetically strong.
    Diploma golf ( hcp 4 ) instructor.
    I like ice-hockey and football.
    I worked as a guide for cycling groups in the Alps and Pyrenees. I have a golden certificate from the Marmotte Pyrenees 2017. 200 + kilometer rides I the mountains are no problem.
    I'm a hard and dedicated worker.
    I am a non (alcohol) drinker and non smoker, but I am mental enough sober ;-)
    Not a believer of any religion, sekt, ghosts or spiritual things. I'm an atheist.
    But I RESPECT religious people, so I have no problem with it as long as it has no extremes.
    I prefer living the local life rather than seeing touristic things.
    For example a coffee in a local bar instead of another statue, church, shopping street....
    I have literally been living-working around the world so I am pretty experienced with various type of people and their culture-habits-religions-food-way of life etc...
