  • Description

    Hello, my name is Maxime,
    I am 32 years old, I decided to leave my life in France, in January 2019, I sold everything (house, car...) to start a trip of 2 years or more to meet new people and new cultures. Far from this consumer life, I travel with my backpack and the bare minimum. I worked in France as a mechanic for 11 years (French army) then in truck after-sales service for 3 years.

    I would like to come back from this trip with an idea for a project, and build a self-sufficient life and maybe settle somewhere else in France. But for that I have to learn to speak better English.

    I would like to come to Australia or New Zealand (or both if possible), for 6 months (available from April to the end of october), to meet new people and new cultures. I am a manual person, I can help with construction work (indoor, outdoor), garden work (I have no knowledge, but I can't use the tools), babysitting and childcare (after 5 years, I don't know how to deal with newborn ), housework and cooking.
    I can also teach French if you are interested

    I am also a sportsman, I like hiking, running, swimming, and I would be happy to accompany you if you also practice one of these sports.

    We look forward to meeting you.
