    Hi!

    Thank you for reading my profile!

    My name is Monique.
    I was born in Antwerp (Belgium) and I have lived in this city for a long time. However a few years ago I moved to the green outskirts where I live in a ground floor apartment with a small garden. Unfortunately without animals as it is not allowed by the landlord.

    At the moment I'm single and I have no children.

    In my professional life I have been doing different things
    ... editorial and layout work for a magazine
    ... organizing international study visits
    ... organizing seminars about intercultural learning
    ... social work with disadvantaged people
    ... a lot of administration and financial work
    ... reception work

    I'm not working anymore, but this doesn't mean that I sit quietly at home :-)
    ... I started going to the Art Academy where I learned to make digital paintings and moving pictures. Two years ago I started drawing class.
    ... I enjoy making websites
    ... I have been dancing all my life - a lot of different styles (salsa, tango, lindy hop, african, etc), but at the moment I dance NIA.
    ... I started taking singing lessons - you might find this crazy, but it's something I felt I had to do and it gives me a lot of energy.
    ... I used to play the djembé in a group, but as the group splitted I stopped playing - it's something you don't do on your own. Now I'm learning to play the bodhran (Irish drum).
    ... I'm an animal lover, but as I can't keep animals in my flat, I take care of pets for my friends when they are on holiday.
    ... I like going for long walks in the nature, but I also enjoy absorbing the culture of a city.

    During my working life I have visited different countries as a "normal" tourist: once a year going for a week or 2 to a foreign country and going around to see as much as possible.
    Now that I have more spare time I want to do it differently: I want to stay for a longer time in a place and blend in with the locals.

    Maybe I'm a bit older than the average workawayer, but this means I can offer more life, travel and work experience :-)

    Hope to see you soon!

    When I go to a country where people speak a language I don't speak myself, of course I would like to learn a bit to be able to communicate with the locals.

  • Algo más...

    I like to be around people, but I also need time on my own. That's why I prefer not to share a bedroom.
