  • Description

    Aloha!

    Ocean lover, surfer, hobby-chef, environmentalist, bonfire-with-friends-underneath-stars-admirer, appreciator of good music (especially live), hard worker, openminded, optimistic and down to earth adventuress are some keywords to describe me. Bringing people together. laughing and spreading good mood is what I like to do and I am not afraid to take on the responsibility to do so. I am creative, and as a creator, I know that things cannot be done without putting in hard work. But the end result will always make it worth it!:) Workaway gives me the amazing opportunity to experience countries like a local and gain new experiences, and I love this way of life, which is why I want to give back and help with everything I have.

  • What skills do you have?

    I have done quite a few workaways (on this site and private) by now and I keep on falling in love with the amazing opportunity to try out new things and walk different paths in life for a while. The workaways I have done so far include:

    -Hostels and Guesthouses: Reception/checking, housekeeping and kitchen help, many of which were specialized in surfing, I love the hostel atmosphere and to make sure the guests have the greatest experience possible. Furthermore, connecting with people from around the world is just awesome

    -Farming/ woofing and gardening: Growing up around horses, I am not shy to get my hands dirty and put in some muscle work, and I love learning more about Agri- and permaculture and how to be more sustainable. Plus, I am a huge animal lover and all about protecting wildlife and just taking good care of these lovely creatures.

    -Construction: I helped to build a house in England, sand down old wood etc. By no means am I a pro, but I am reliable, responsible, hardworking and a quick learner.:)

    -Language Café and Au Pair: why do I put these together? Because you need to be creative and a great communicator to entertain little and grown-up adults for hours, which is another thing I love doing. I am fluent in German, English, Japanese and can speak conversational French too.

    ...Plus, I love cooking and baking and am not afraid to bribe you with my food if it helps;)
