Hi, my name is Dina and I'm 23 years old. I'm from Germany and started traveling through Southeast Asia in the end of 2015, which was set out to be a 5 month trip - and then the travel bug caught me and I returned home two years later.
I really love to travel and to get to know other countries, the people living there and their culture. Personally, I think that cultural exchange is one of the best parts of traveling - besides the food of course ;)
At the moment, I'm studying European Studies with a focus on culture and environmental sciences in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. In my free time I enjoy hoop dancing (yes, it's a thing! :D), gardening, cooking, reading, horseriding, playing the piano and doing dogsitting. I also really love children and have a lot of experience with them (especially age 2-10) because of internships in a kindergarden, primary school and previous volunteer (teaching) work in Vietnam and Cambodia.
I'm a very open minded, happy and chatty person who enjoys meeting new people. I like working in a team because you can get much more done together than on our own and I'm not above doing physical work - I want to have something to do otherwise I get bored!
Languages are the key to getting to know a country properly, so I'm always keen to learn new ones! I speak German, English, a little bit of Spanish and Dutch and am learning Arabic at the moment - so if you want to help me out with improving my spoken Arabic skills that would be amazing! I'm also becoming more and more interested in permaculture, organic and sustainable living and natural remedies and would love to learn more about it.
I'm really looking forward to gain new experiences with volunteering and hope for some great opportunities to get to know new countries, meeting new friends and doing something meaningful!
I'm caring, honest and open-minded, i love to cook and do gardening, I'm a kids and animal lover, chatty, teamplayer and i really like nature and activities like hiking or horseriding :) I like moving and doing stuff and exercise daily, so as long as I've got something to do I'm happy!
