    Description

    Hello there! :)

    My name is Hurly, In 2013, I quit my job as a community/social worker to travel around the world. I have travelled to more or less 70 countries since then - working, volunteering and travelling everywhere - 7 years! :) I have used workaway (and other sites similar to it) before. I was able to do volunteer work in many cities in South America, Europe and Asia. It is a great way to travel and to experience "working" in different projects, involving different people and communities.

    It's a cliché to say this but travelling really has been such an enriching, life changing experience for me. To have the opportunity to think and reflect, to unlearn and relearn the social conditioning and behaviours, to know different stories and to experience and see different perspectives and to share... it's beyond incredible.

    I do like learning and experiencing different things, challenging and broadening my comfort zones and boundaries.
    I think life is a constant development and change which requires movement beyond comfort zones. In that process, I am able to enjoy the life as it is - an adventure and a constant process of learning and changing.

    Since covid happened last year, I've decided to pause my travel and come home in Toronto to also help take care of my dad. He had an accident which left him unable to do things on his own so I am helping him take care of the house and help him with everyday activities.

    As I said, I have used other sites similar to workaway like wwoofing, helpx, couchsurfing and hospitalityclub. Even before I travelled the world, my family hosted many people from couchsurfing and hospitality club. I thought maybe this time around, we can also host someone from workaway. The help we need is really light -mostly companionship for my dad. He is now in a wheelchair and it would be cool if someone would be able to just take him to walks, the mall, watch tv with him, etc. We could make trips to different destinations in and around Toronto, etc. No special skill is needed. Just be friendly and flexible! :)

    Anyway, if you have any questions or wanna reach out, feel free to message. It would be great to hear from you. :)
