Hiking! visiting! Eating nice food! Doing all sorts of things we can still do despite covid!
I'm Annick, A French native and online freelancer (translation EN to FR, proofreading, French lessons). I discovered Workaway last year and it's been a truly amazing experience since I started.
I was at first volunteering in a hostel I visited in May 2018, in Istanbul (see review). I ended up managing the place for two months after one month of volunteering.
I love traveling! I have lived four years in Malaysia (KL, Ipoh) where I worked in a restaurant for two years, then managed it and also taught French.
I started working online full time when I came back to Europe, tin February 2017. I lived and worked in Barcelona, a city I love, then lived in Crete, Istanbul, Austria and Sri Lanka.
Then, I went on a workaway in a farm in Palestine, then helping with construction in Catalonia.
After that, I worked 4 months in Austria winter 2018-19 in a chalet, helping guests, cleaning but mostly cooking for up to 40 pax every evening.
I returned to Istanbul, Chambers of the Boheme hostel for over 3 months, as manager of the volunteer's team, successfully implementing various new activities and leading forward improvements in the facilities, management, cleaning, infrastructure renovation.
I work well within a team, but can also take charge. I am not fussy with anything but tend to prefer leaving in a neat environment, where I can work a little online. I also prefer vegetarian food / vegan whenever possible though I never let it affect my work (I am used to cook / taste meat if necessary when I have to for work).
Finally in 2020, I was in Sri Lanka for 7 months, volunteering for 3 months (before covid) in 3 different hostels, mostly doing general maintenance, breakfasts, checking in guests...
*** 2021 UPDATE ***
I was hoping to do another winter season 2020-21 in the mountains in France but the opening date keeps being pushed back, so I'm back on Workaway and mostly looking for:
* Yoga / Meditation / Ayurvedic places
* Vegan cooking
* Animal sanctuary
* Farm stay
* Hostel (reception or other)
I am mostly useful when it comes to cooking (omni possible but vegan preferred), teaching French (4 years experience), as well as some gardening jobs.
I'm open to any type of experience as long as the host is happy to teach.
** COOL UPDATE **
I'm getting better with my drone so if you're looking to promote a business or such, I could definitely help make nice videos, social media contents, these sorts of things.
cooking, cleaning, gardening, teaching languages
graphic design, marketing, construction, animal care
Plus de détails sur les langues qui m'intéressent
I teach French, mostly online, always happy to help out!
I have a lot of experience online so I can help creating a webite, or translating in French, do social media etc.
I am currently taking a course to become consultant in ayurveda
Permis de conduire
I have mild allergies to cats/horses/birds. Very manageable these days =)
Régime alimentaire spécial
I eat vegan food mostly, can compromise a bit for certain food containing a bit of dairy or egg (mostly if offered tbh)
