Hello! I'm Leanne from Canada. I have been living/working/traveling in Portugal the past 9 months. I was introduced to Workaway last year, and have had some wonderful experiences! I love being in nature, hiking, camping, and exploring anywhere new. I am happiest by the ocean :) Love meeting new people from all over the globe, and sharing experiences. I was living in Lisbon when the virus hit, and I lost my job :( I returned to workaway this summer, which has taken me to my new home in the western Algarve, and living a vegan lifestyle off grid! Just started a new project building a camper van with my partner!
I have experience in a wide range of tasks from guest services, to cleaning and child care. Have worked serving in several restaurants and as a deckhand/naturalist on whale watching tour boats on both coasts of Canada. I have been employed for several years in retail banking/financial services and have experience in construction helping my partner with his business, as well as renovating two homes.
I am independent, reliable and adaptable. Don't mind hard physical work and getting my hands dirty:)
Native English speaker, who knows some french and, would be happy to practice language exchange also!
Keen to practice my Portuguese :)
Looking forward to connecting with some lovely people, and having a great mutual experience!
