    Travelling

  • Description

    I am a very enthusiastic horticultural engineer who started out as a classical/opera singer and chef.
    I love traveling, I spent more than a year wwoofing on farms in the Czech Republic and Scotland and I tried workaway for the first time in 2017 to teach English for children. I loved it a lot and continued my adventures on a farm harvesting olives, then with a family of actors where I helped out with childcare, housework, and gardening.
    The following year I spent almost 6 months in the US on two farms where I had the chance to learn about both commercial and small-scale vegetable production and how to take care of hundreds of pasture-raised laying hens.
    I spent 6 months in Scotland in 2019, discovering the Islands and Highlands, and loved every minute of it. I got to work in a family hotel, on several crofts - some of them off-the-grid, an organic farm and gained a lot of useful skills.
    This summer I'm finishing woodworking school, and I will finally become (a still very inexperienced :D) cabinetmaker.
    I'm a very chatty person, I'll talk your ears off but I also don't mind being on my own. I'm also a book fanatic, on my days off you can find me either hiking or reading.
