  • Descripción

    Hi, Hola, Privet, Bon Jour, Namaskar!

    My name is Nikolai, I am Russian living in Estonia, a digital nomad and handyman.
    I will be glad to cut your firewood, tame your overgrown bush, build your sundeck or paint your roof. Good mood and funny stories come as a bonus.

    My story
    Some time ago I was a freelance translator and interpreter and my life used to revolve around a computer desk or a conference room. Then I changed my priorities and now I enjoy travelling and WorkAwaying, doing a variety of works and some translations on the way to earn my next ticket.

    My skills
    I really like hard work, learning, languages, active lifestyle, housekeeping, travelling and reading. In addition to a reasonable computer literacy, I also have some experience in construction (especially carpentry and electrical installation), gardening and forestry.
    So, I am good with power and hand tools, including chainsaws and all kinds of cutters and trimmers, I paint walls and fell trees.

    In fact, I do everything I can put my eager hands on, and if I do not have any skill, I do my best to learn it. I am easy-going, very clear with my goals and the ways to achieve it, pay attention to details and appreciate a good joke. I am able to work on my own, as long as you set the task and provide resources (tools / materials).

    I like people, respect animals, try to stay away from babies and prefer learning to teaching. Usually I offer to stay and work for one month with a host, though the co-operation can be extended if it works for both of us. I also offer a trial first week as the way to see whether it works and if not, both the host and I can say thank you, good bye without any bad feeling or ruining plans.

    Some practical issues:
    - I am a citizen of Estonia (EU), so I do not need a visa to visit many countries.
    - I am omnivorous, no allergies.
    - I am “early to bed – early to rise” person.
    - I am fully COVID vaccinated.
    - And yes, I need a shower at least once a day.
