My name is Nicolas, I'm 24 years old and come from the north of France (belgian border).
I have been working for two years as an engineer in a building glass manufacture.
I nowadays look for short stays around Europe during my free time.
I am very interested by organic agriculture, forest work, wood/leather crafting, activity in open air. Working for an organic farm or someone that lives in the countryside close to nature is what I am looking for in any case.
I am looking for a place that touches my curiosity and where I can meet people that are willing to learn from eachother.
I am very keen on manual work, full of energy, very curious and rather down to earth. I love traveling, leaving my comfort zone and being immersed in a different environment, speaking different languages.
When it comes to the work, I can help with animal related work, construction work (renovation) but also in social activities. In addition I try to suggest ideas as much as I can, so that my host can get a different perspective on things from time to time. I am looking forward to learn from my host/hosting family as much as I can.
I have many experiences abroad, including North and Central America, Asia, Scandinavia, Iceland.
I have several woofing experiences (Finland and Norway), for a total of 10 months altogether (cf. below for a description of these experiences).
You are very welcome to contact me if you think I could match for your criteria. When could then have a phone talk perhaps. :-) You can also send me a message if you just want further information.
