Hello, I'm Neil from Edinburgh, Scotland. I'm currently a second-year student at Leiden University in The Netherlands. Previously I spent 3 years studying Arabic (and the Middle East in general) and hope to continue traveling in the region for many more years :)
Effective public relations skills (communication, mediation etc.) from working/volunteering in a number of positions within a public setting.
In my last Workaway position I volunteered in a backpacker's hostel in the Old City of Nablus, Palestine.
My last work position was as front of house in a high-end bar in Edinburgh where I was tasked with multiple responsibilities ranging from customer service to maintenance of the bar.
In addition to this, I have spent almost the entirety of the last 4 years travelling/studying in an international environment and have gleaned a lot of experience in living with people from a variety of countries and cultures.
Languages: fluent in English, and Advanced level In Classical Arabic. Currently learning Levantine Arabic and Dutch.
Backpacking has been my main hobby for several years, I try to spend at least 2 months a year travelling to different countries every year.
Also living in Scotland and The Netherlands I pursue long-distance mountain biking/bike camping
