    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    I quit my job last year to keep the promise that I would give myself one year to travel. After some adventures I find myself looking for experiences that nourish the soul. After circumnavigating Taiwan and walking through mountain villages in China, I find myself in New Zealand seeking more slower experiences. It feels strange when everyone seems to be off on an epic adventure all over New Zealand and I just can't seem to get excited about road trips and adventures... Instead I just want to take my time at one place, give and learn something meaningful, build sustained relationships, and most importantly get to know myself. This is the reason I come to Workaway.

    I take pleasure in being helpful and doing good work. I like to listen. I respect and follow rules. I'm the kind of worker that just do what I'm told without complaining.

    Personality wise, I'm an easy-going introvert that always takes an interest in other people, likes to listen more than talk, inquisitive and reflective.

    I'm a lover of taking walks, it always helps me find peace and enjoy the here and now. Lately I'm addicted to cooking. I like learning, lately I've been studying Japanese and Korean.
