My next destination:Canada - from Apr 2022 until Jul 2022 View all
My name is Mike I have been working in the hospitality industry for 17 years and have got to meet some amazing people from around the world, i'm friendly, enjoy socialising and learning new skills.
I started my career as a chef working in chalets and from here moved to managing some great restaurants & hotels.
A couple of years ago I was fortunate to be able to take on a project on a 300 acre farm to help restore and convert a large barn and stables into a restaurant & hotel whilst learning farm life.
Caring for the animals was a new chapter in my career and one which taught me a lot and has opened up my eyes to this wonderful world and how it combines with hospitality. Calving and lambing are some memories that will stick with me for life.
I started working away for the first time in 2017 and spent a fantastic summer in Canada learning so much about organic farming, animal care, building and how I could improve my own skills. I was even lucky enough to be invited to help cook at a island farm to table event for 400 people using all local produce.
After a great career so far, I have decided to take a new path and I am currently studying Psychology at university in the UK, so will be free in the summer months to take some time again to explore, socialise, and hopefully learn a new language, making new friends whilst continuing this amazing journey I have started.
