  • Description

    For 8 years I've worked in Ireland as a bookseller, but at the end of 2015 I decided to quit my job and travel the world. Since then I visited China, Indonesia, Morocco and some european countries. I spent 4 months in France volunteering as a WWOOFer, including 3 weeks in the winery and 6 weeks in small B&B in the Pyrenees where I helped with food preparation, garden work and general housekeeping. My workaway projects have brought me to many wonderful places like Lapland with its northern lights and reindeers, Berber camp in a desert, surf house in Lisbon or B&B situated on the slope of Mount Etna.
    In October 2017 I'm going to Canada with IEC which hopefully will allow me to discover lots of beautiful places and people.
    I'm a very reliable person, easy going and passionate (mostly about books, traveling and cats). I speak English, Polish and some (very little) French. I have a master degree in tourism and recreation so I often volunteer in the hospitality industry to gain more experience. I love trying new cuisines, learning new skills and challenging myself: in swedish Lapland I learned how to drive snowmobile, in Morocco - how to gut the fish, in Portugal - I tried surfing and in Sicily I overcame my fear of heights and tried paragliding.
