    WHO I AM
    Hello, my name is Jiri. I am 28 years old chap from the Czech republic. I like sports (cycling, running, skiing, slack line), travelling especially in nature, reading, movies watching and music. I think I am fair, easy going, open-minded and reliable person, more introvert. I am a non-smoker. I worked as a volunteer through WA in Israel, Canada, USA, Netherlands and Germany and now I want to show volunteering experience to my girlfriend Petra.

    In September (6.-20.9.) me and Petra (28) are going to volunteer in Switzerland, Austria or Germany for a couple of weeks. We would like to experience farming, taking care, of animals, gardening, building experimental/traditional house or help in a guest house/hostel.

    Petra is a paramedic, working and living in Prague. She is very responsible person with good attituted to work and eager to learn something about farming. She likes hiking, reading, doing sports and sun shining. She is more extrovert. I speak English (level C1), a few words in German, Petra is speking English (level A2)

    During my studies I was working as a bicycle serviceman (I love cycling), landscaper, in catering and as a worker in a factory, so I think I am not clumsy even though that my current job is an analyst. So far I've had 13 WA various experiences. I worked on a few farms, in a hostel and as a carpenter.

    Me and my girlfriend want to offer to our host a help on a daily basis. We are not fear of any work. Maybe we can bring to your work a new approach or see problems from another perspective. I think we are diligent and assiduous. We can work as a farmers as well as a guiders.

    On the other hand we don't want to work all day to the evening, We want to have enough time to explore country side around. So we expect fair approach from hosts according to philosophy of Work away.

    Looking forward to meet you!
