Mi próximo destino:Sweden - Desde Jun 2022 Hasta Jul 2022 Ver todos
Me: Hi, my name is Douwe, I am 18 years old and my home country is The Netherlands. I consider myself a spontaneous, rational and open minded person. I enjoy music a lot and through this, a hobby of mine is collecting and playing vinyl records. I also really enjoy hanging out with friends and playing some video games from time to time!
My story: I recently graduated from highschool and although I know what I want to study, I decided that after countless exams and papers, it was time for me to jump out of my comfort zone and go on a whole different adventure. It was time to bust the bubble and see what there is to experience beyond the city life of Leiden (the city I live in). After a friend referred me to this program I instantly got excited and knew this would be perfect for me!
My experience: As of right now, I am doing my second workaway in Portugal and I am loving it! So I could say I have some experience with volunteering work. I also do have travel experience (I hitchhiked to Portugal) so I feel quite confident in unfamiliar environments.
My plan: To travel around in Portugal, untill Christmas time. Experience different things, work, live life and ofcourse make beautiful memories.
I chose Portugal, because I adore the landscapes and since I am planning to start around the beginning of September, I wanted to find a place where it would stay warm as long as possible (in Europe). I am going to try to hitchhike to the location as I have always wanted to try that and I think it’s one of the best ways of going around!
For the work itself, I am not really looking for anything specific, anything goes really, as long as I gain some new experiences ;).

Que habilidades tienes?
I graduated in the VWO level of the dutch school system, which is the second highest level someone can do. I was very interested in the beta subjects I followed and therefore have a good knowledge of mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology.
My social skills are also something I am positive about. I had a job in sales, joined some debate groups and I was in a little group at school which anyone could address if they needed a listening ear.
Furthermore I am very familiar with Windows software and computer hardware. Say a technical problem would occur, I would feel confident that with a little help of the internet I would be able to fix it.
I also had a summer job at a nursing home where my primary role was cleaning and a catering job at a little bar in my hometown.
Finally I am fit to fullfil any physical tasks a host needs me to do.
Apart from being able to prepare some basic dishes I wouldn't say I am a brilliant cook, but that is definitely something I want to learn more about and become better at! This also applies to any construction type work, I am unexperienced yet motivated to work more with my hands, so I am more then happy with any physical work a host throws at me.

There is a specific sort of band aid which I am allergic to, I also have a very fierce reaction to bee and wasp stings, not an allergic one, just a worse one than a normal person. So no bee keeping for me :p
I am a vegetarian, trying to go vegan ^^
