    Top Workawayer

  • Description

    Hi there,
    I'm Joao and since march I've been travelling around europe and workawaying :) from the very first workaway until now I've done a lot of different things. At the beginning I had those experiences with my cousin Rafael, who got back to Brasil, so, now I'm keeping my journey alone and hope to make this time last a little longer.
    Gardening, chainsawing, housekeeping, grouting, painting and reception are some of the things I've done. As a workawayer I had the chance to improve my english, face different jobs and hosts and meet some of the most incredible human beings I would ever meet.
    I really believe volunteering is a really good way to improve ourselves, not only to the travellers, but also to the hosts! Through this platform I've improved my confidence when it comes to learn new things and solve different problems and that's some of the reasons why I love this platform so much :)
    I'm currently in the UK and I intend to find a place to stay and know more about its history and traditions! Afterwards I'm coming to Scandinavia and I'm really looking forward to get to know it.

  • What skills do you have?

    During the trip I've had the chance to work with lawn mowers, trimmers, and most of the tools concerned to gardening; general maintenance related to hostels and hotels, as well as housekeeping, reception, hospitality and also some management. I have also been to few farms and some tiny villages, so I know a little bit about how it is to live in quiet places. However, the most important skill I always try to develop is the capability to learn and be active.
