For the most part, I am looking for places, people and situations that inspire me. Inspire me to write. To learn. To challenge myself.
I am a firm believer that if one wants to learn a language, one must not drag the language to a suitable place, but rather go to the language in its natural habitat. :) Therefore, my ambitions regarding languages such as French are definitely directed at spending a lot of quality time with native speakers.
Having grown up in the city centre of Tallinn (Estonia), I have really got attached to historic buildings, the combination of urban areas and nature as well as knowing that I am very lucky to be born to such an amazing nation with a very complicated history and language that I have the privilege of speaking fluently.
In addition, since I am quite young, I hope to acquire as much knowledge and skills as I am able to. Therefore, I hope to learn something practical from the people who host me. One never knows where some skills might come in handy.
Concerning my character, I am a very lively, friendly and patient person. I can be very talkative at times and also very quiet at other times. I very much enjoy to interact and be around new people, but on occasions I also like being alone, listening to music, reading, drawing or writing. Although I have very strong opinions on a lot of things, I always listen to others' points of view, because I believe that one can learn from any person.
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
This is one of the boxes I hope to fill up thanks to Workaway.
Since I have a country house, I am familiar with a lot of works in the garden, although I cannot say I have mastered any. Maybe building treehouses, which I started doing from a very young age. My mother always made me help around the house with different chores and father made me help me build things, so that kind of help comes second-nature to me.
I am very good with children and animals, especially with dogs, horses and cats (experience-wise). I do know how to cook, but not with a very stabile quality.
I also write a lot, sing, play chess and paint, although how well is subjective.
I am very good at keeping calm in difficult situations.
Estonian - fluent; French - Intermediary (reading&writing); Russian - intermediary; Spanish - beginner
I love to visit landmarks, museums and historic places, so all recommendations are welcome.
If I get to know You better, I can sing for You :)
Special dietary requirements
There are some foods that I really prefer not to eat, like onions and curry, but I am fine with most dishes.
