  • Description

    Originally from Ireland, I just finished my last three years of high school in New Zealand and have returned to Europe (where my heart really is).

    I have decided to take a year out and would love to explore and experience new things all over the continent. Hopefully I'll learn German and improve my drawing too!

    I enjoy going for long walks, reading, watching movies, and drawing but I also love to share and discuss the things I learn with others and am always up for a tabletop game or a debate!

  • What skills do you have?

    I am a capable person who is quick at leaning and willing to master new skills.

    One of my passions is art and I have a knack for drawing. I have created murals as well as posters in the past. During my workaway adventures I have helped make Anti-litter signs and ceramic garden decorations.

    I have been doing workaway for a few months now and have learnt and improved lots of skills:
    - helping children with English conversation
    - general house work like cleaning and cooking and shopping
    - gardening, including strimming, weeding, planting, preparing beds, turning compost etc...
    - fruit picking
    - welcoming, and showing guests around a camp site
    - prepared rooms for AirBnB
    - animal care: feeding horses, dog and cat
    - dog walking
