  • Descrição

    Hi! I am Katrien, 25 years old and I grew up in Antwerp, Belgium.

    Me signing up as a workaway is a (big) step to discovering a new kind of freedom and one step closer to a much wanted adventurous lifestyle.
    After working for three years and getting a taste of the normal adult life I am starting to notice that I want more out of life than the people I've surrounded myself with over the years. I would love to discover what the world has to offer by meeting new people and learning from there mindsets and way of living. Also the idea of working all over the world, wherever help is needed, gets me all excited.

    A little bit more about me:
    After graduating as a kindergarden teacher I started working not only with kids but tried a lot of different professions. In the free time that is left I love going on all kinds of adventures.
    From small ones as camping in the garden to bigger ones as travelling alone through Europe.
    My brother has an outdoor company, me helping him is a perfect excuse for going on small adventures all the time.

    I love learning new things and expanding my skills.
    I consider myself a hard worker and creative, someone who can adapt to many situations.
    I´m up to travel to any country and work hard in any job as long I can feel comfortable where and who I´m with.

    During the summer of 2021I bought myself a small basic van, quited my jobs and by the beginning of September I was ready to go. With winter slowly arriving I decided to drive my way to the south of Spain and Portugal.
    Since I have time I like to expierence every place I stop and there is no limit in how long I can stay there.

    So far I had three wonderfull workaway experiences:
    One with Lou in the Aragonese Pyrenees. For almost five weeks I helped out at her self sufficient house/bed and breakfast. I mainly helped with the household and taking care of the guest.
    One with Ayla in the desert near Cuevas del Campo. I had the opportunity to live in her cavehouse with her while getting introduced to a spiritual and back to basics kind of living. We worked in the garden, cooked our own harvested food, did some construction work,... and so much more.
    And one with Arianne at her bed and breakfast in Fuengirola. During my stay there were no guest but I helped with preparing all the rooms, cleaning the house and caring for her daughter.
    Being able to have had this amazing experience only makes me more excited for new Workaway destinations.

  • Quais são suas habilidades?

    I think the most important thing to tell here is that I am a quick learner.
    I am a hard worker and not scared at all of getting my hands dirty.
    I find myself pretty handy and creative.

    As a young student I started working and I've had the chance to do a lot of different professions. From selling ice cream, working at the guestservices of the Antwerp zoo, fold laundry in an industrial laundry service,... to interviewing and hiring students for a big logistic company.

    I find myself enjoying a big variety of tasks and something new to learn everyday absolutely the most.
    I love working with people around me as wel as independently.

    My intrest in nature has evolved to me being a volunteer at a local "plant library", a place where people can come to trade small pieces of there houseplants. Super fun and educational!

    At the moment I am learning an practicing the art of spoon carving.

    I am a full on animal-person. Ever since we got a dog a year ago I am sold to any kind of animal.

    During my trip I got the chance to follow a 10 day Vipassana meditation course near Madrid. This was a first and intens introduction into the world of meditation and I am curious to learn and practice more with people who have more experience and knowledge.
