  • Descrição

    Hi, my name is Famke, 46 years old, from Amsterdam and ready to go. I am a positive person who tends to wake up happy.
    When it comes to work, I'm very flexible. It's usually the people I work with that make my day.
    As much as I like the city, more and more I love to spend time out in natural surroundings.
    Already quite a few time before did I venture out with Workaway, once at an amazing place in the north of Argentina Patagonia next on a lovely natural farm on the beautiful island of Evia (Greece) then came forest work in Brussels and more recently I have worked at a green oasis in my own country a couple of times.
    On all occasions the work entailed outdoor work, which I truly love.
    On the farm in Greece we had chickens, goats, sheep, two pigs, three dogs and two cats. It was part of our work to make sure they got fed and watered. I grew fond of all of the animals. them. They are so funny. Chickens for example will pick at anything that is presented to them. They can be very relaxed or very cranky and its sweet the way they all perch on a stick at dawn. I also learned that chickens snore!
    Another thing I loved at the farm was the food that we were eating. It was what we had just picked from the land. So it was all fresh, tasty and exciting.

    To me Workaway is a very rewarding and inspiring way to travel. I look forward to my next Workaway address!

      I have very recently decided to mainly eat whole foods. Where possible unpacked. Less plastic and better health at the same time.
