Actuellement, je suis
I am Nika, a creative and hardworking wench from wild and windy Dartmoor, UK.
As such I occasionally have a look of wistful melancholy in my eye, but still retain a sense of humour.
My dream is to one day build a home of my own. This sojourn to Scandinavia is a quest to gain knowledge on how to one day build my own completely eco friendly house, surrounded by a diverse and creative community. Ahhh doesn't that sound nice?
But also I am deeply unhappy with how the current systems are set in place to trap people into an unhealthy way of living and wish to be part of a positive change (yes I'm an eco activists at heart).
I have many qualifications in teaching outdoor skills (forest school, bush craft, navigation, natural building, tracking and outdoor activities) and am an avid hide tanner, which means I make leather out of animal skins that would otherwise be thrown away. I also make drums and rattles for music making and spiritual exploration.
I adore gardening/growing/foraging food and cooking (I'm a professional chef), and practical, creative projects.
I studied Ecology and Spirituality at Schumacher college and seek to combine art, psychology and a deep understanding of the natural world to help people with mental health difficulties.
I am an artist and would love to document my travels with lots of drawings inspired by the landscape, folktales and people I meet.
Also- I am currently learning how to play the Jouhikko/Tagelharpa and would love to spend time making music with other people.
I look forward to meeting you, learning new skills, sharing mine, working hard and having some fun!

Régime alimentaire spécial
They were able to host us at the last minute when our original host cancelled.
Not only did they pick us up from the train station, but cared for us, fed us, told us so many stories and taught us about Romanian culture... but were also just really interesting and kind people.
