  • Descripción

    Hi, Hola, Privet, Bon Jour, Namaskar!
    My name is Nikolai, I am a middle-age handyman and digital nomad.
    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.
    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).
    Update: I have enrolled in Mechatronic Engineering Course, so in 2019-2020 I am available for two weeks in winter (Christmas vacations) and two months in summer (July and August). The bright side of the coin is that I will have deeper knowledge in mechanics and electricity.
    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) and forestry.
    So, I am good with power and hand tools, including chainsaws and all kinds of cutters and trimmers. 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 can 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 it 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 ruined plans.
    Some practical issues:
    - I am a citizen of Estonia (EU), so I do not need a visa to visit many countries, and I have a valid health insurance (European healthcare card or traveller insurance outside EU).
    - As I have to do my translations to earn my next ticket, I work five hours a day / five days a week for a host and do my translations afterwards.
    - I am leisure vegetarian (meaning, not fanatic), no allergies. I often skip supper.
    - I am “early to bed – early to rise” man.
    - And yes, I need a hot shower at least once a day.
