  • Description

    Hi there,
    My name is Ivar, I'm twenty years old and I'm traveling with Workaway for the past 2 years. In the South of the Netherlands I grew up on a farm. I learned a lot of skills on the farm but I still want to learn a lot more. Last year I finished my study in Antwerp, Belgium. Where I studied to become a baker/pastry chef. Right now I am studying at a university in the Netherlands. I've worked as a barista, waiter, farmer, gardener, baker and as a driver of a front loader. I'm open to new experiences and challenges to learn from! Travelling and meeting new people is something I love! :) Most of the time I hitchhike to my destination and until now I've travelled 5 times through Europe with my thumb. I'm open to learn new languages and I have a positive attitude, am open-minded and love philosophy. I like to work precisely and to try new things. At the end of the day is having a great time with the people around me what matters :) Feel free to send me a message anytime!!

  • What else ...

    *️️️️️Farming: I grew up on a farm in the Netherlands and I've worked on a couple other farms as well. I have a tractor-driving license for the work on the bigger farms. But I would like to learn more about organic farming as well. For example: Sustainable farming, permaculture, growing organic food and making homemade products.
    *️️️️️Gardening: I have worked as a gardener for two years and I like to make my hands dirty and the garden clean ;)
    *️️️️️Baking: As a baker I like almost everything about food! I like to learn how to make local products and local dishes. Cooking as well and especially together with others :)
    *️️️️️Cleaning: Not that I am in love with cleaning, but I really like to work organized. Cleaning up, so it's easier to work!
    *️️️️️Learning: This is probably one of the best skills you can have. I like it a lot to learn from others! Even when something looks simple, you can still learn a lot from it. I also like to teach others. Like baking a bread can be very fun to learn :)
    *️️️️️sociable with children and adults: I have worked on a camping as animator for children and I really like to do that! I work in a bakery shop and there I am sociable with adults too!

I like to hike and visit the most beautiful places in the area :)
I love to hitchhike! Most of the time I hitchhike alone, but sometimes with a travelbuddy. Thumbs up :)
Hay season in Switzerland :)
Here I was working with a frontloader on a company that makes compost.
On this farm I've cleaned the chickencoop in change for breakfast and a campingspot.
Hitchhiking is a lovely way to meet local people, to explore the area and to have a great time while travelling.
