  • Description

    Hi beautiful people,
    I am Joy, born & raised in France. I'm traveling for a year now in Southeast Asia / India and for an indeterminate period of time. I’ve decided to do a Workaway because I don’t want to travel fast anymore and change place every 3 days. I want to spend time with locals, to get deeper in the culture and know more about the country in which I am. I am highly determined to do something and contribute to a project.
    When I do a commitment, I do it for real. Therefore, I will do my best in whatever jobs that need attending too.
    I’m looking out to enrich myself helping out in whatever is needed, to surround myself with positive energy and expand my horizons.
    Having the opportunity to live with sweet people, in a nice atmosphere close to nature would be a perfect place to work for me.
    If my host offers me the opportunity of learning and practicing meditation and your yoga, that would even more perfect ✨.
    I wish we will create nice moments together and you will help me immersing myself in another culture.
    On this profile, I’m doing my best to describe myself, what I like, what I’ve done.. as much as I can :)
    Joy 🌸
