  • Description

    Hi! My name is Kauri, I am a traveler and adventurer. I love learning new things, and experiencing different ways of life. I like learning new recipes, trying new foods, and seeing new places. I also love to dance and to play sports, not that I consider myself good at either, haha.
    I am mom to a wild and sweet young girl named Ovi. She will be traveling, and likely "working", with me. In many ways, she is very much a mini me: she will follow me where I go, do what I do (or play nearby if my task is uninteresting to her), we are both pretty happy with out surroundings wherever we might be, as long as we've eaten and rested! She loves art, animals, books, pasta, music... well, there's not much she doesn't like. We are also both VERY goofy and love to sing!
    I am an accounting assistant most recently, a sales clerk before that, a carpenter's apprentice before that, an unpaid farm intern before that... The list goes on! I have a wide range of experience - a jack of all trades, if you will, though certainly a master of none. In high school, I volunteered as an Outdoor School student leader, teaching middle school kids about plants, animals, and soil.
    We are looking for hosts in various countries to learn about how people live in different parts of the world. We would love to be hosted my a family with children, but we are looking to become part of whatever kind of family you have! Ovi and I are very laid back and adaptable to new situations. We are very neat and tidy (Ovi maybe even more so than myself!), and we love to be social, as well as have some time to ourselves.
    We look forward to meeting some great new people through our Workaway experiences!

  • What else ...

    I will be traveling with my young daughter and would like for most, if not all, of my Workaway duties to able to be performed with her by my side, on my back, or while she plays nearby. Though it's a bonus if there are other kids around to play with, instead! If we're staying for longer than a month, I might like to look into the possibility of a local preschool for her, and welcome any help with that :)
