    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    My name is Kaj van Leer, I'm 18 years old and was born in Leiden, the Netherlands.
    I always had a dream to travel after I finished school, now that I finally have I am pursuing that dream and traveling through Canada and the United States. I believe workaway is the best solution to reduce the costs and double the experience of my trip.

    I am an experienced traveler and an open person. I love hanging out with friends and getting to know new people. Because I am a quick learner, in my opinion there aren't many tasks that I would not be able to do. I am quite the perfectionist, which means that I don't mind getting my hands dirty while working on something.

    My interests mainly evolve around cars. I have a car back home and have had my license for almost 2 years now, with about 20-30k of driving experience in a lot of different cars. My last job was as a valet parker at Schiphol International Airport, so driving for a host won't be a problem.

    I am a big fan of dogs and other pets, back home we have a Scottish Collie (like Lassie but black), which I'll have to miss for half a year.

    All in all I can't wait to start working and living with a host on here, sharing and improving my skills, knowledge and also my English. If wanted I can also teach Dutch and German since I'm bilingual.

    See you soon!
