My name is Abby, I am British/Irish, 26 years old and 5 years ago I had my first workaway experience in Spain.
After leaving college at 19, where I studied art, history, sociology and philosophy, I started working full time, doing everything from waitressing to working at events, and briefly working as an assistant chef. I saved up the money to go for a 2 month trip around India, and when I got back I moved to Spain.
I went to the south to learn Spanish, and ended up liking it so much that I stayed and today I live in Madrid and speak fluent Spanish. I did many different volunteering jobs with Workaway and Helpx, some of which were working on the land, planting things, feeding animals and maintaining olive groves. I also volunteered in hostels which involved cooking, cleaning, reception duties and entertaining the guests; weekly I would take them to a salsa class for example.
I currently work as an English teacher, but in the future will work as a primary school teacher.
I have many interests, the main ones being reading, going for walks, cycling, history, and nature. I also like singing and drawing. I am a very sociable person and I love meeting new people and learning new things.
I am really looking forward to this new adventure; I've been working full time for several years and feel like I need something totally different for a little while. I am craving to be in a natural place, away from the stresses of city life. I am not afraid of hard work or getting my hands dirty.
I am a very positive and active person and I'm sure I could help you with many things.

Apart from the languages I am a good cook and teacher. If you would like to learn or improve your English I can certainly help. Besides that, I can help with gardening or general maintenance. I also have some artistic skills, albeit somewhat neglected!

I have worked as an English teacher for the last four years during my time in Spain. During this time I have become fluent in Spanish, and I enjoyed the process so much that I want to do it again with French. I have been teaching myself some French, and the main purpose of my upcoming trip will be to achieve a conversational level in French.
I like to challenge myself, which often means trying new things. I am open minded and would like to expand my skills. I like gardening and would like to learn more about it, particularly ecological methods.
