  • Description

    Update: March 2022 - sorry, I will be leaving Workaway shortly and have arranged for my remaining time.

    From Spring 2021, I'm taking an 18 month sabbatical after a long shift of 30 years as a Mechanical Engineer. I plan to spend this period working-away and exploring new places. I find creative & practical work satisfying and can offer a wide range of skills in exchange for the chance to spend time in beautiful surroundings and meet good people. I'm already fairly well travelled and am happy to keep my visits to the UK and Western Europe, keeping my air miles to a minimum. Hiking is my favourite activity - camping and cycling too. I may use the motorbike to cover the bigger distances - it's a fantastic way to travel. I work well on my own but the objective is to meet interesting people, hear new stories and learn new skills.

    Environmentally aware, travelling less (aren't we all just now?) and generally eating less meat - although I couldn't give it up altogether.
    I'm hoping to work at various places for 3-4 week periods, using my spare time to explore coastal and mountain regions. Possibly crofting, or working at hostels or helping with eco or traditional building projects.
