    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hello I'm Norbert.
    I'm currently living in the Netherlands, and I'm strongly feeling the urge to go away and interact with natural people and environments whom I hopefully can assist in various ways.

    At this moment I really want to surf the beautiful ocean. Would be nice if the workaway location is near some nice area with waves.

    A short description about me:

    I'm a very creative person who likes to be in a natural environment and around natural people. In 2016 I've quitted my job at the Royal Netherlands Navy, at which I've been working as a mechanic for over 18 years. I'm skilled or have experience in mechanical work, electronics, and hydraulic devices. Also I like to design and create lighting and furniture. (my website is

    And now something is pulling me towards a new perspective. Something with nature and people who have ideas to improve the quality of their surrounding world and their own inner world.

    I've experimented with the food I consume for over a long time, to see which food is most suittable for me, and my health (also found out about the influence of the mind, so letting go some previous limiting knowledge here and there) and currently I'm sliding into the Vegan lifestyle.

    And also I'm doing some meditation, breathing techniques, and experimented a little bit with the Wim Hof method, that's to improve your immune system with the help of breathing techniques and applying cold water on the body.

    Children seem to like me, and I'm always in for a laugh.

    My favourite sport is Surfing, and swimming, and a couple of times I did some Yoga, and I want to do it more.

    Okay, that's it for now.

    Greetings from me!
