    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Update: in Tijuana mexico, now, looking for travel budxy to go southwards via baja california

    Hi my name is Rodolphe,
    After a period of working in my home country (Netherlands), I’m always up for a trip. I lived/worked as a Mechanical Engineer for several years in Australia, New-Zealand, Canada. Traveled for 13 months through South America, doing workways along the way. Last but not least I walked the Camino in Spain and the Olav’s path in Norway.

    I'm a vegetarian, do not smoke, drink, and try to eat as much organic as possible. I love live music around a camp fire, although I'm a better listener than a musician.

    When I’m at home I'm a contractor, Mechanical Engineer/3D CAD but have hands-on experience as well; on and off I have/have had motorcycles on which I did modifications and repairs myself. Quick learner, can pick up new skills easily.

    Next trip is planned for September 2019 to Mexico, but other Latin American countries can be added to the list ;)
