  • Description

    I had my first Workaway experience on an olive farm in Tuscany two summers ago and I had a blast! I am social worker by profession and since I semi retired two years ago I have backpacked and hiked across Europe from Rome to remote mountain villages in Albania and cooled of in wadis of Oman. I love meeting people of all ages and cultures and I find that volunteering is a unique way to experience life first hand in another country. As a volunteer over the years I've tried my hands at gardening, orange picking, general maintenance, cleaning, light construction, painting, animal care, English language teaching, working with tourists. Along the way, I have met a great deal of wonderful people, shared laughter and seen many beautiful places and my plan is continue on this great journey.
