    Good Workawayer

  • My status


  • Description

    I would describe myself as a curious person. I am interested in many different fields, but currently obsessed with language-learning.

    After finishing my bachelor's degree in philosophy and urban studies, I decided to take a gap-year to travel around and improve the languages that I speak. I can currently communicate in English, Dutch, French, Spanish, and German - my next project is Italian. Before the coronacrisis started I travelled to Chile where I worked for 3 months on an isolated horse farm (Flor de Romeo, Yumbel, Chile).

    Even though I live in the city, I always try to make my environment as green as possible with lots of plants. I would like to learn more about plants, specifically edible ones.

    I grew up taking care of different animals that we had around our house. I am experienced in the caretaking of horses, chickens, ducks, dogs, and cats.

    Given that I am new on workaway, I do not have any references yet. I would therefore like to refer you to the references on my couchsurfing profile: https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/fabiennereedijk
