  • Description

    My name is Herman, im from Sweden. I love travelling and when i travel to a new country i like to learn as much as possible about the people, the structure, the lifestyle, the culture, everything!
    I have travelled to over 50 countries in the past 4 years. I like to check out cities and wander around and drink coffee and look at people and buildings. I adore the nature, the mountains in particular. I like meeting new interesting people and of course i enjoy all the other things that travelling has to offer.
    But to experience a country for real you have to stay a little longer, and volunteering is a perfect way to make it possible.
    I just like to help people, seeing someone else happy because of something i did for them makes me happy, it's not more complicated than that.
    I have a really strong work ethic and have worked with alot of different things. In Sweden i have mostly worked with car/truck manufacturing, building components for Volvo and other companies (in this sector the work includes the usage of many different tools, reading drawings, making own decisions and coming up with solutions, welding, CNC, running production lines, how to work safely, etc.) I have worked in the scrap metal industry in Australia, and in the hospitality sector in Canada.
    I grew up playing lots of online and video games, and i master computers and many of the different Office programs. I have been editing travel videos in Sony Vegas, and lately done some translation for various companies (Swedish-English and vice versa) on a freelancing basis.
    I have done many "hobby level" constructions jobs on private property, but never industrial.
    I am physically fit and a fast learner who always does his best with the assigned task.
