  • Description

    I am taking time out to explore, to learn and feel free. My plan is to stay a while on the Canary Islands in the near future. I am on the look for the right places or communities, which are a bit more off the beaten track...

    I enjoy nature and islands. Activities i like to do are hiking and running, cooking, reading, languages, swimming, fishing and much more. I would describe myself as enthusiastic and open-minded. Most of the times I have loads of ideas, plans and i'm always in search for inspiration.

    I am open for whatever comes my way, but there are a few things I would want to learn more about in the future. I am very interested in sustainable living and eco-projects, so gaining more skills in off-grid/eco living would be amazing. I also like animals a lot and I would like to participate in some project with animals.

    I'm very eager to learn new things and meet interesting people. I generally have a motivated attitude and I am physically fit. For me, working in a relaxed manner and having fun is important, though I can work hard if demanded :)

    I believe that good communication and honesty between host and workawayer is essential for a great experience for us all.

  • Quelles sont vos compétences ?

    I gained several skills during my previous Workaway experiences. This includes working with forestry equipment (such as chainsaw, axe, shredder etc.). I have basic knowledge and skills with permaculture and in gardening (working with soil, water and growing plants, fruit harvesting etc.). In 2017 I spent a month at an agro-turismo Quinta in Portugal where I learned some construction skills (building a shed, making cement, bricklaying) as well as many other things like serving guests, cleaning and animal care. Other tourism experiences include working on camping Pelinos (Portugal) in 2020.

    For many years I have been privately teaching primary and high school children in many courses, including English.

    My cooking skills are slowly and steadily improving.
