I have 3 IMPORTANT QUESTIONS for you... 🤔
1) Are you the type of HOST who welcomes guests in a warmful & flexible way, providing well-earned HOSPITALITY for honest work?
2) Are you looking for a RELIABLE workawayer, committed to helping and learning about the stuff you need to get done?
3) What about an open-minded, POSITIVE type of person, who's capable of adapting in different contexts and situations?
If you share these core values, I think we could potentially have a great experience together!
Hey there! I'm Rey. :)
Born in the Philippines and raised in Europe, I've been living a nomadic lifestyle for a few years now.
I love immersing myself into different cultures, always looking for interesting experiences and cool new projects!
I really enjoy outdoor activities such as mountaineering, hiking & backpacking.
The most exciting part about travel to me is dealing with the unfamiliar and the growth that comes with it.
Many of such experiences turned me into a reliable travel companion and fueled my enthusiasm for adventures!
Professionally, I'm a freelance digital strategist & entrepreneur.
Work, travel and play allowed me to develop good relational, communication, and diplomatic skills - teaching me to be at service to people.
This also taught me the life philosophy of mutual respect that comes along with a mutual exchange of value.
As a person who highly values self-development, I'm dedicated to lifelong learning and in seek for personal growth.
