I am Manon, a French young woman currently living in Norway and used to be a workawayer. I used the website to live with families to practice norwegian so I could settle in Norway afterwards.
I spent half a year in Kongsberg in 2014 as an erasmus student and liked Norway so much that I came back three times after that !
I see workaway as a great opportunity to live in a country with locals. Cultural exchange is actually the best part of travelling for me.
I did six workaways : near Trondheim in a goat farm with two lovely children, in Lofoten in a guest house preparing rooms for guests, near Senja island helping in a horsefarm, near Lillehammer to help with housekeeping, in Hemsedal helping a family with lodge caretaking and baby sitting and in Asker helping with an airbnb flat, outdoor and indoor work.
I am no longer looking for any workaway and live currently in Oslo. Feel free to contact me if you wanna share your experience of have any questions about mine. I would gladly help ! Also if you happen to be in Oslo's area, we can always meet up !
See you soon !

Helping with Tourists
Thanks to workaway, I've been able to help with animal care (feeding goats, horses, cleaning the barn, mucking the paddocks), painting a building, take care of young kids and be responsible for the cleanliness of out-rented rooms.
In France, I worked in human resources and graduated with a master degree in HR.
I used to work as a receptionist in a hotel in Spain, where I could help tourists getting around and visit the area.
I spent around 1,5 year helping teenagers with school work, I am also currently helping a 13 years old boy with English.
I have been living on my own for 6 years now, and think I am pretty autonomeous with house tasks and cooking !
