  • Descrição

    I've been on workaway for a few years now and have made a lifestyle out of it. Right now I have a job as a greenkeeper on a golf course in Sweden but as of April 2023 I expect to be in Canada for a year and will be looking for some places to work hard and have some novel experiences.

    I don't mind being geographically isolated but my preference is to have some form of social contact. Whether this is with you, guests/customers, other volunteers or locals isn't important, I just don't want to be put in a caravan at the end of the garden and left without any one to converse with.

    I'm happiest when involved in some kind of physical work, building something, lifting something, digging something. Learning new skills is one of my strongest drives, whether something practical for daily life, something construction related or a new sport or adventurous activity. If you can teach me, I want to learn. I enjoy teaching English, I have helped lots of friends improve their English although only on a casual basis.

    I have a theory that the best hosts (when it comes to the work aspect at least) are the ones that strike the right balance between utilising the skills their volunteers already have and giving them the opportunity to acquire news skills either by training them or by giving them the trust and space for trial and error.

    I'm hard working, curious, want to learn about people, places and ideas and I tend to stay positive come rain or shine. If it sounds like I could be of some use to you then please feel free to contact me and we'll see if we can work something out!
