I am currently
My next destination:Japan - from Jan 2021 View all
Hello everyone!! I'm Luan! I will be in Japan until Feb 2021 (possibly even later if an extension is approved) on a working-holiday visa. I've always loved japanese culture (read a lot of mangas *cheeky grin*), history and food.
I hope to find a fun place to stay and work hard! I'm up for anything and I'm quick learner. The main thing I am looking for in a workaway is to experience authentic japanese culture and experience the daily life of a japanese person.
I like making various small videos about different aspects japanese life, arts and culture.
I own a car so I am also looking for a place with parking.
Quick experience sum up: I've worked in the hospitality industry and I've been travelling across Asia the past 9 months so I know how customers and guests should be treated! I'm also a computer engineer by trade and I've worked 2 years in that industry as well. I have done multiple workaways at various hostels and guesthouses so I am good at cleaning around the house. In addition, I worked on a farm for more than a month in Gose, Nara.

What else ...
Love rock climbing, did I mention that!? Used to play competitive badminton and I would love to get back into it, I know Japan has a string badminton community, with Kento Momota being the top player in the world right now! I love any kind of outdoor activities! But I also love to hang out, kick back and have a cold one!
