My next destination:Portugal - from Oct 2021 until Jan 2022 View all
My name is Harry, I am 26 and live in beautiful rural Devon in the South West of the UK. I am an open minded, sociable and creative person who is eager to experience all that life can offer, make meaningful connections with beautiful places and people, and constantly challenge myself to try new things.
For the last six years I have worked as a dance artist, teaching, performing and training across the UK, Netherlands, France and South Korea. During the pandemic while a lot of this work was not possible, I directed my energy into my other great passion in life: the ocean. I have since spent my time split between dancing and working as a Paddle Boarding Instructor, teaching open water safety, paddling technique and running guided coastal journeys in Devon and Cornwall. Both of these are skills (amongst others listed below) that I would be happy to share. When I'm not dancing or paddling you'll likely still find me in or near the sea, either swimming, surfing, reading, or if you're particularly unlucky, playing the ukulele (it's a working progress!).
Over the last few years I have spent time travelling and volunteering in Portugal and Italy, where I completed my first Workaway on an organic permaculture homestead in the beautiful Tuscan mountains, restoring the buildings and landscape. After spending this summer renovating my van I am now heading back to Europe to chase the sun down the north coast of Spain and Portugal, and seek out any opportunities to connect with people and give a helping hand along the way.
If you have any questions, I'd love to hear from you!
