  • Description

    Bonjour!
    My name is Marijn and I'm a wandering dreamer from the Netherlands. I enjoy living my simple life in a campervan and working along the way.

    I'm very much interested in learning more about permaculture gardening, sustainable living and building techniques. One day maybe I'll settle down somewhere to build my own little cottage and during my travels I'd like to figure out how, what and where.

    I love exploring nature and exchanging culture. In my free time I like to go hiking, cycling, swimming, play board games, make hummus, listen to music, occasionally do some hoop dance or yoga, read books or just sit around drinking tea and doing nothing. I very much enjoy meeting other people, having good conversations and laughing about funny jokes. Although I also like to have some quiet time and be alone sometimes.

  • More details about your skills

    I have some experience with gardening (still a beginner though), renovating and taking care of animals: sheep, dogs, goats, donkeys, horses, pigs, cats, chickens, ducks. These skills I acquired through Workaway and WWOOF projects mostly and I would like to further develop them.

    Recently I built my first chicken bedroom from leftover wood. I enjoyed this introduction to woodwork and I would be happy to further develop this skill. Using a hammer feels empowering, both in the muscles and in the mind.

    I also have experience in writing, cleaning, customer support and hospitality.
