    ABOUT ME :-)

    My name is Hayley and I am fom the UK. I have travelled since the age of 29 and have had some wonderful experiences and have used Workaway on and off over the years having a 3 year break when I was living in my van.
    I used to have a mortgage and I just got so sick of the living to pay bills type of life that I changed everything and started a new life of living simply and got rid of everything that I owned. This was when I started to travel and it really changed my perspective on things.
    Having spent time living in the mountains for 8 months, living in a camper van for a few years and having just spent 1 month living in a cave, I have learned to slow down, go with the rhythms of nature and to reconnect with myself. I wish to continue that journey.

    I enjoy reading especially about philosophy, walking, camping, cooking, music, meeting like minded people and learning; I also feel it is important to try to take of yourself mentally and physically.

    As a person I am fairly sociable and I love to connect with others, but I also love to have my alone time. I would say I am both extrovert and introvert depending on the environment and how I am feeling 🙂 I love to laugh especially at myself and try not to take things and life so seriously, going with the flow and trying to live in the moment.


    I really want to experience living life off grid as my future idea is to eventually live in nature either on a piece of land, a cave, a van or a beach..maybe a community? That would be great; helping each other. I would also love to learn about permaculture gardening, learn to do yoga, meditation and learn some new ways of cooking healthy and delicious food from different cultures.
    I also really wish to learn Spanish as I have always been in love with the delicious language so hopefully I can do that either through language exchange with someone who also wants to learn English, or simply by forcing myself to speak it with the locals.
    If you are interested in hosting me then please feel free to send me message.

    Hayley 🙂❤️
