    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    So, what to write here?
    Firstly, my name is Maritta (but I call myself Rita), I'm 26 and I'm from England. I joined Workaway a few years back and it's taken me on some unforgettable journeys, and now I'm looking to create more amazing experiences.

    About me, I love pretty much everything that life has to offer (with some exceptions of course!), but specifically I love cooking, creating, nature, writing, music, learning and meeting new people. Life is incredibly simple and I think humans tend to over-complicate it, so you'd never have to worry about me complaining, I'm mostly always content wherever I am :)

    I love working (contrary to popular belief haha) as it provides a meaning and sense of satisfaction when offering a service. I love anything social but I'm also naturally a lover of my own company, so I'm always happy in big groups or by myself - balance is key.

    I'm quite spiritual by nature, having lived in temples and alongside Shamans, so nothing in this life is strange to me anymore! I love to laugh and make others laugh too but I'm also very responsible and a fast-thinker when necessary. I'm also very clean and tidy - a messy room is a messy mind!

    I think the quote 'you never stop learning' is relevant to my life. I love to learn! Whether it be weird, random facts or learning a new language, I'm happy to sit and listen to people share their stories and knowledge with me :)

    Well, I can't talk about myself all day so I'll leave it there. If you think we'd be a good match then I'd love for you to write to me whatever the job is.

    I hope to see you soon :)

    Rita xx
