  • Description

    Hello, I'm Mirale, from the Netherlands. A couple of years ago I decided to go travel through Europe by volunteering via workaway. The mix of working and staying in the most beautiful rural sites and visiting great towns at times off: I loved it. On beforehand I thought I was a 'city-person', but now I know better: I love hiking and being in the middle of nowhere. So far I worked in some hotels in Spain, on organic farms in Austria, took care of sheep, rabbits, chickens, dogs and cats, and picked olives in Greece. I found out that I really like working with animals, taking care and just be around them!

    After two years I quit my workaway subscription but kept on travelling, I did lots of pet sitting, volunteered in several hostels in Scotland, and took a restaurant job in Scotland for the season. Now I'm back on workaway, for it's still the best way to travel for me!

    I am considerate, reliable and responsible, also very easy-going and flexible. I can be a good assistant in all sorts of work.
