I'm a very energetic, easy-going and experienced workawayer - it's become my life! My passions are caring for people, gardens, animals and the environment, and learning from people of all ages and cultures.
My English is excellent, French intermediate level, Japanese and Italian quite basic.
I have now volunteered in Thailand, Fiji, France, Belgium, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, USA and Japan as well as Australia and New Zealand: helping with gardening, milking goats, renovating buildings, at a retreat centre, with a mobile cafe, caring for children, the elderly and people with chronic illnesses, teaching English ... and lots of cleaning!
After being a teacher for 7 years then spending 15 years in the international aid departments of the Australian and NZ governments, I love meeting people of many nationalities on a more individual basis.
I look forward to meeting you.
