I currently am volunteering in northern Portugal. Starting in May, I want to slowly travel south :)
Hey, I am an 18-year-old girl currently doing my gap year. I love travelling, so I am trying to find my way around Covid-19 by doing slow travel and volunteering, which is why I started to do workaways :) I love dancing, drawing, swimming and running, learning new languages, meeting new people and all the stuff that has to do with travelling!

More details about your skills
Well, I just graduated from school this summer, so beside my Abitur I don´t have any further academical qualifications yet... But I have been volunteering in childcare for the last five years now, and in autumn I was doing a European Solidarity Corps project focusing on gardenwork, teaching children and environmental issues in Zagreb. Of course, I have a drivers licence and first aid education in case this might be relevant... After two internships in (social media) marketing this winter I am now volunteering in a reforestation project near Vila Real, Portugal.
I am very flexible, I like to take care about people and engage with them just as much as I love to be outside all day and do loads of active work. I am familiar with DIY, renovations and basic building works - especially through my volunteering for environmental organizations I learned a lot about gardening and sustainability - and I definetely don´t mind hard work!
More details about my language interests
I'm in love with spanish and would love to improve my skills. But now that I am in Portugal, I started learning a bit of Portugese - but I still am a total beginner! :p
What else ...
A few months ago I learned how to play chess(but I'm still horrible at it), so if you´d like to teach me some techniques you´re welcome :)
I play a bit of piano and I would love to learn more or learn some other intrument (guitar or else) and I would be soo happy if you could teach me some! Only recently, I started to discover Yoga as something that I really enjoy to do. Also, I always want to learn about new traditions, food, and languages -- so we will definetely find some things to pass our time!
