I will, for the second year, leave the comfort of home to travel in Europe for four to five months. During some of this time I would like an opportunity to meet locals and experience their cuisine, culture and day to day lives. I believe that I will be able to help WorkAway hosts and their families improve their English language skills while participating in their day to day activities. I enjoy learning new skills and teaching others new skills as well.
I would like to share this experience with my sister Clare, an energetic school teacher with a great sense of humour, who is currently based in Europe for an indefinite period.
