    Hi. My name is Lynn. Thank you for looking at my profile!

    I have been volunteering since September 2018 and have enjoyed some amazing times with hosts in Portugal, Italy, France, Spain and in the UK. I have enjoyed meeting new people fro all over Europe and some of my hosts and other volunteers have become good friends. I am conscientious, reliable, respectful, sociable and able to think outside the box, to adapt to any given situation or task. I enjoy physical work and will always try to go above and beyond the task set, even if it takes longer than the daily hours set. I am very practical and have a keen eye for detail.

    I have been a volunteer at home stays, as a housekeeper, elderly companion, gardener and cook. I have particularly enjoyed meal planning, food shopping and preparing tasty meals for every day or for three course dinner parties. On some occasions I have been able to expand on my knowledge, having been taught by chefs and cooks, how meals are prepared in their country. I’ve also been able to use new ingredients, depending on the country I was in at the time. I have worked in hotels, on reception, in kitchens and housekeeping and have spent a lot of time working for various hosts at bed & breakfast establishments. I have even spent several weeks on a boat that required refurbishing. I carried out many DIY projects, from painting interiors and garden furniture and gates to making seat and cushion covers for pool and garden chairs. I have reupholstered and covered old sofas, repainted and recovered old rocking chairs and made new headboards. I am also an experienced furniture assembler if you have any flat-pack furniture or I can up-cycle your old Victorian pieces.

    Thank you for reading my profile. Please get in touch if I can be of any help with your current projects.

    Keep safe!
    Lynn
