I'm Florentina, currently located in Vienna and studying at university - but I don't see myself living the city life forever, which is why I'm here. I hope to learn about different ways of life that are more aligned with nature and human needs rather than the fast-paced modern normal. I believe the way to a better world lies in connection to self, nature and others and in doing whatever you do with love.
Giving a description of yourself is never easy, but I'll have to try to give you an impression of me:
Some things I'm passionate about are:
- cooking, nutrition and healthy living
- music (listening, occasionally making - I play piano and guitar)
- growing in creative endeavours (writing/painting/photography)
- reflection and living mindfully
When it comes to work, I'm happy to bring with me all the knowledge and energy I have when contributing to your projects. I don't mind physically demanding work or getting my hands dirty. I have patience and pay attention to detail. Once I know what to do, I can work independently.
If you're looking for help in renovation, building, landscaping, gardening etc, I don't have in-depth skills for show (yet), I have however held tools in my hands before and will be eager to learn anything you can teach me!
In my holidays or on the side during school years I have worked jobs of different objectives, including generic office work, being a secretary, but also manual production work, working in a student home's kitchen and on the local cemetery (yes, really). I spent years being with the Scouts, hence I'm comfortable spending a lot of time in nature and picked up useful skills like splitting firewood.
I grew up as the oldest of four siblings, so I'm used to living in a busy home with young children and caring for them.
One of the things I loved in school was learning new languages (English & Spanish, sadly none more) and they remain to be a great interest of mine - I have done some English tutoring for students and am very comfortable with the language.
In my free time I like to read, especially on spirituality and philosophy, enjoy conversations with friends, I cook and bake a lot, like to keep my body happy with exercise, practice yoga and meditation, go on long walks and will often simply enjoy stillness.
Due to the current situation, I am more careful on travels, limit contacts and take tests when needed to ensure everyone's safety - but I have gone through a Covid infection a few months ago and am therefore (fortunately) considered exempt from some measures regarding border crossings and test-taking etc.
- some experience in general maintenance (painting, using power tools)
- cooking & baking
- photography and using photo editing programmes like Photoshop, Lightroom etc
- basic sewing and other handicrafts
- basic computer skills
- helping with your German/being a conversation partner in English or German
- quick to adapt, can work by myself if necessary and happy to pick up anything you teach me!
If you are into any of the following topics, we would surely have a lot to talk about as I am keen to learn more about them :)
- renovation and construction
- tiny houses, van life
- yoga practice and meditation
- physical fitness
