  • Description

    Hi, this is a profile...
    My name is Nicolette and I am a 56 year old woman from the Netherlands and I will be travelling around Europe for a year starting May 2020 and starting in the Netherlands. I love to help out in the garden, growing veggies and herbs, fermenting them if there is a lot, chopping wood, building dry stone walls, Huegelkultur vegetable beds, meeting people, taking care animals and working with them, taking care of plants, having interesting conversations and going with the flow.
    I have been working in the IT world mostly as a project manager and I loved creating results together, having some fun and learning a couple of things in the process. This year I did not wish to spend in concrete buildings so it is time to spend a lot more time outdoors, work in gardens, foodforests and permaculture and meet some new people :-)

    I am travelling in our buscamper with Jip, my cat and he loves the outdoors although he is a little shy. We are very happy if we can park the bus in a quiet spot, only needing a shower, electricity and food. And a nice bit of work to help you out!

    English: good, German, not too bad/intermediate, French a bit more than basic, Italian basic and I throw in a couple of words of Arabic, Bosnian and Spanish if you wish 😊
