  • Description

    Hello everyone,

    my name is Ann-Kathrin, i am 31 years old and i am from bavaria, germany.

    My passion for travelling came when i travelled to south america for 6 months in the year 2011. I lived in Peru for a while, wehre i was working in a kindergarden and learned spanish in a school. After that time i travelled nearly the whole south american continent. I usually travel very loosely with little planning as i believe thats the best way for me to discover and take those unexpected opportunities that may come across.

    The last few years i travelled a lot to asia, europa and central america and i realized that this is my thing. I decided to go a bit further and quit my job in the bank, where i was working for 15 years. I don't want just to travel, meet natives and experience their culture - i also want to work, help and make something grow. That is the main reason why i signed up for workaway - to work away. :-)

    Right now i just came back from a 3 months trip to western africa (Ghana & Togo).

    I would describe myself as an open minded, easy going, active and funny woman. I love meeting new people, making experiences (whether they are good or bad - you learn from both), explore the world and i love nature and wide landscapes.
