“Be the change you wish to see in the world”
Work Away has been an irreplaceable tool in fulfilling my travels. Staying in one place for weeks allows me to make an impact on my surrounding and develop relations with those I stay with.
I live to travel with a purpose. Whether that purpose is to build a foundation for a house, give our guest an experience of a life time, and especially act as friend to the travel community I truly thrive when I have enough time to build relations with those around me.
Between my trips I work seasonal positions:
-Certified massage therapist and Lv. 2 Reiki practitioner
+13 years in child care/ customer service experience/ Landscaping
I strive to be an inspiring person, making a point to pursue things that interest me and in turn hopefully encourage others to do the same. Working out/ Running/ and Yoga are important parts of my week; you'll find a portion of my free time will be dedicated to those hobbies.
*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️I’m not the kind of person working to fulfilled their 'hours'; rather I take pride in whatever work I'm doing and enjoy working towards finishing a project. From my previous Work Away experiences I can say wholeheartedly I get more from working and spending time with my host rather than working the minimum number of hours to wander off and do my own thing.
"Remember, everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be Kind. Always."
