I am Matthias, 28 years old and from Switzerland. Last summer I finished my studies (civil engineer) at the ETH in Zürich. My dream is to work in Norway for several months. Now, I would like to do something other than I'm studied. I love to be outside and love to use my hands. Unfortunately, I didn't need my hands so much in my studies and I missed this.
2017 I was the first time in Norway and I was fascinated about this country. The reasons are difficult to describe with words, you have to experience it. In winter 2018/2019 and in spring 2019 I was in Norway again to see other seasons. The fascination was preserved.
In September 2019 I started with Work&Travel in Kristiansand in South-Norway. I worked for several weeks at a Bed & Breakfast in Kristiansand where I did maintenance work at cabins, built a wood terrace of around 50 m2 and took care of guests. This experience was amazing. From December 2019 til March 2020 I worked as snowmobile guide and Minibus driver in the amazing Lyngenalps in North-Norway.
At your stay I would like to help you, where it needs me. I have no trouble chopping wood, cleaning, shovel snow and much more. I'm thinking, I'm not bad to do practical work and I love doing it (a few years ago I worked several months on construction sites). Perhaps it is good to know that I speak German, English, more or less Norwegian and some French. Furthermore I am open minded, sporty, reliable and communicative.
