    Kayleen / Insta kayleenontour and ourwanderingpaws
    Happy girl, trilingual (German, Spanish, English) and learning Mandarin since a few years.
    Very flexible, independent, very much "awake", mature and sporty. Loves almost everything.
    Easy to handle. Good energy level.
    Very mature and tall for her age.
    She loves nature, sports, adventure and laughing, having fun, playing and be with people.
    Going out for meals, also having picnics and "drinks in the bar" :-) (she got this in Spain ...).
    Friendly, creative, very open-minded and respectful. Grateful.
    A great and happy girl! Vegetarian (and not picky!).
    Strength:
    Languages, talking, playing Football, in general sports, swimming, painting/drawing. Also Natural Horsemanship, started with surfing.
    She is very good with younger children (and older ones anyway) and animals.
    And generally also loved by other workawayers because of her great spirit, open mind, knowledge and understanding.
    Interests:
    Almost everything ... But especially Natural Horsemanship which she learned in Tuscany, Colorado and the Australian Outback during our world trip. She also started to surf.
    To be avoided:
    Boredom.
    News:
    She has a new friend since October last year: Jenny, her midsized very friendly (at the beginning might be scared about people) dog Jenny. 14 months now, lovely, well behaved. Kayleen loves to take her with her whenever possibilities are given.

    Our aim of travelling:
    Get a real deep experience for countries, its people, culture, nature, adventure.
    Different aspects and ideas of life and living.
    Learning for life - also for Kayleen who absorbs everything with great interest.
    And of course, making new friends!
    We seek for either very specific experiences or/and learning specific skills when working away.
    Something for real life, spiritual well-being or very practical things!

    We also do and love house sitting, with and without pets. 20 5star references are available on https://www.trustedhousesitters.com/house-and-pet-sitters/spain/balearic-islands/palma/l/85727/.
    We are self-employed and besides some jobs need to be done for clients in our leisure time, our travels inspire our work (photography/writing). Blogs, books, a.s.o. Working on our laptops is so easy while on our way, but also means that we should have electrical power supply (not necessarily in our room) and a working internet connection.
    While doing housesitting, workawaying and wwoofing, our family always was seen as a happy, enriching, hard working and easy going family - on the host and workawayer side.

    A word to our maturity ;-) and the advantages coming with it: Having had quite a few workawayers in our home ourselves during the past year, we came to appreciate respectful, mature workawayers who have a good perspective of life and an understanding about the seriousness of the workaway concept and responsibility they agreed to.

  • Some more information

    • Smoker

    • Driver's licence

    • Allergies
      No, nothing

    • Special dietary requirements
      We are very easy to handle vegetarians / no animals (also not fish and chicken), eggs and milk are fine. Could be basic food not to make it too complicate in a family / organisation where members do not eat vegetarian. Kay is one with everything.
