Hello, and thank you that you read my profile.
My name is Ulrich, I am 68, from Germany and a retired language teacher. Advanced in age, but young at heart.
I now have the time, wish and energy for going abroad to see and experience other countries and cultures.
I like to meet and make new friends of all ages, find inspirations, work together with people , exchanging ideas and skills. But I can also do jobs happily and responsibly for myself. I see Workaway as a much more interesting way of getting around than plain tourism.
My hobbies and interests are mainly plants and animals ( horses, dogs and all others), music, art and reading .
For years I have been busy with designing, weeding, planting, mowing our large garden.
Keeping and training animals ( western horses, dogs, sheep, birds etc.) has always been a part of my life. I like handling, cleaning, feeding etc horses and other animals.
I see myself as fit and healthy, open-minded, always curious, interested and communicative.
I can enjoy all kinds of food. I am a non smoker and no drinker. Coming from Germany's wine-growing area, I can enjoy a glass of wine in company in the evening.
I have done volunteering in my student years on a horsefarm for tourists in Ireland (5 months) and not long ago as an English teacher in schools and an orphanage in Thailand (1 month).
All kinds of garden work. Taking care of and handling animals. I have some experience in horse and dog training. Not afraid of getting dirty. I have Driver' s Licence for 4WD and horse-trailer. Some cooking (German/Italian/ Asian) and housework will be no problem. My long-time teaching background could be helpful for language practice (English/German) with children and grown-ups. I consider myself as flexible and motivated . Working independently or in a team is both fine for me.
