  • Description

    Hello my future host :)

    This is Raquel and I will be in Spain from July onward. I am currently on a job break and looking for ways to make life more meaningful - HELPING OTHERS.

    Being a new joiner, I might not as experienced as others but what I believe is that only ATTITUDE matters. Everything I do from Workaway is NOT work at all, they are things that make people closer.

    I am cheerful, adaptable, responsible and always enjoy making new friends.
    [A side note: Sunflower is my favourite as it always reminds me to look at things POSITIVELY]

    I would like to make my Workaway experience REWARDING, to both my host and myself, in different perspectives and I am open to all sorts of tasks in different places:

    - I like to "get my hands dirty" (literally) because it means total involvement.
    - I could never forget the crispiness and sweetness of freshly picked vegetables. They are blessing from our nature.

    [Hostel/ Home stay]
    - I encountered people from all walks of life in my previous jobs and I like sharing stories and experiences a lot.
    - Very often I receive compliments for being responsive and very attentive to people's needs.

    - Yoga is my keen hobby which always gives me peace of mind.
    - Cooking is satisfying as that makes both my tummy and people happy.
    - Enthusiastic about DIY and hands-on projects. One of my favourite pastimes is crochet.
    - Language exchange with English, Mandarin and Cantonese. (Además voy a tomar clases en Madrid en julio para mejorar mi español)

    ...and more. Let's contact and explore more possibilities. Hope to see you soon!!

    Raquel :)

  • What else ...

    Some might feel strange about my number of friends on FB. My account got hacked and I have just created another FB account :(
    Well, maybe this is life but when things happen unexpectedly, we can always make it better by changing the way we think...
    Isn't it nice to have a brand new account for journaling all my Workaway experience well from the beginning? And hope you will one of them on FB, my dear hosts and other Workawayers ;)
