  • Description

    Hello! My name is John, I am Irish and from a town outside of Belfast (Ireland). I am a hard worker, but most importantly a chilled, easy-going person who can get along with pretty much everybody!

    After graduating with a Master’s degree in sport psychology from Liverpool John Moores University, I moved back home to Ireland and worked in different jobs (warehouses, offices and shops). I just finished a six-month contract working in administration before Christmas. But, now that my work contract is over and instead of accepting a new offer to stay, I want to travel, experience new cultures, see new places and meet new people before I settle down with a long-term job career.

    My backpacking adventure is coming to an end soon but I will be back on the move, hopefully in a few months...we shall see! Thanks for reading and thanks to everyone I have met along the journey.

  • What else ...

    I am an easy-going person, sarcastic and good humor, and I like to understand then adapt to others' behaviors, personalities and moods (my psychology background!). When it comes to work and chores I love being busy, getting my head down and my hands dirty, and working until the task is complete.

    In my free time I enjoy playing video games, going on adventures to explore new places and see scenery, reading psychology research, watching football (soccer) live at stadiums and on TV, and watching our four pet rabbits. I love playing football, walking, hiking, cycling and swimming.

    I have lived in Ireland all my life except for four years that I lived in Liverpool for university. This is my first time using workaway but I have visited Portugal, Spain, Holland, Italy, and Germany before on school trips, university trips and holidays with friends. I am currently backpacking, using Airbnb and helping workaway host in South of France before travelling to Marseille, Genoa and Milan to help another host in the Alps.
