  • Description

    Hello all!
    I am Victoria, a recently graduated engineer from Cape Town, South Africa. I Traveled to Italy last year and did 2 WorkAways on a wine farm and an experience hotel. This is where I met my lively, lovely, fun, helpful, kind Dutchman Alexander.
    I am an adventurous, easy-going person, and always eager to learn and experience new things. I work well in a team and believe I always contribute a lot (in terms of work and attitude), but I also like working independently and take initiative to get things done. I want to immerse myself in new activities or lifestyles to find satisfaction and resonation. I enjoy hiking, exploring, and anything outdoors. I like reading and love films. I love all animals and enjoy playing with children. I like music and dancing and the occasional party. I'm a friendly person and get along with all kinds of people. I'm looking for a new adventure, new friends, to learn new skills, share my skills, and come back with another outlook on life. I hope we can help each other :)
    Hello everybody aswel
    Yes I met Victoria last year at a Workaway in Italy and we have been dreaming this whole year about Workaway-traveling through Europe together.
    Let me tell you something about myself. I love to work outside and with my extreme amount of energy I need to create things. I love to work with natural materials and try to make something out of nothing.
    At home I studied economics and law but after working a year as a sales manager I found out I'm more an outside person that wants to see the results of a hard days work instead of chasing targets.
    So I started to work in gardening and maintenance and I loved it. I went from that to roofing work and with that other handy skills came along.
    Last year I worked 6 months at a Workaway in Italy and went there this year again. I did the guests check-ins, cooking and helping out in the kitchen, building new rooms for the hotel, made fences, gutters, and different kind of maintenance like painting, building and fixing.
    I'm good with kids and got all 20 of them to build little tree houses, going on treasure hunts or other fun activities.
    I come out of a creative family that gives me a creative and open mind set.
    I hope that together with Victoria I can help you with whatever you need help with.
    In return we only ask for honest people to work with, good food, perhaps a lekker glass of wine, nice chats and a beautiful time with you.

  • What else ...

    We want to keep traveling/ being nomads and enjoying this life together as much as possible. We want to avoid bleeding our wallets too hard, and ask that we get a small contribution for our work and effort if you think we are worth it (We certainly do). But it is by no means a requirement.
