  • Description

    Hello there,
    my name is Anja and originally I am from beautiful south Germany.
    However I love to travel, meet new people, make new friends, learn and explore all over the world.
    I love being outdoors all day and dont mind hard work and simple rural living at all.
    I started studiying "biological biodiverity and ecology" in 2014, so I could widen my knowledge about our nature, and will finish my bachelor in the summer of 2019. Whenever I get the time I try and travel and learn something new on the way. For the last couple of years I was able to work in England as an assistant warden; train horses, lead mountain horse tracks and babysitt in candada; work as an horse instructor in an outdoor camp and learn about farming in New Zealand.
    All in all I am a very open minded, hard working, adventures, person. Who is always keen to learn and explore new things.

    After I finish uni in the summer of 2019, I am planing a little road trip around South East Europe. Traveling and living in my VW, meeting new people and get to know different countries. Working and helping in different projects and make great memories.
    My trip will start at some point in july 2019 in Austria, making my way down all the way to greece taking detours over hungaria, romania, bulgaria and then making my way up again through Macednonia, Albania, Montenegro towards Slovenia.
    During my trip I would love to learn more about gardening,permaculture, herbal medicine and living selfsufficient, but also gain new craft, cooking, building etc. skills. Also I would love to work with horses again and animals in general. So pretty much when it comes to it, I am already happy working outdoors and getting my hands dirty.

    I am very much looking forward to meet you.
