01/07/2017 - 28/03/2018
Hello, my name is Jo. I would like to start in Croatia, Slovenia, hoping to go to South East Asia or South America next year.
I would describe myself as a very outgoing sociable happy person. I love learning new things and meeting new people. My hobbies include cycling, reading, DIY, painting, exploring, trekking, music, camping and charity work. I make a mean Irish tricolor shot so I have been told
I have completed a 140 hour TEFL course before leaving Ireland. I would love to work in a hostel, guest house, eco-village, homestead or farm where I can meet new people, share ideas and gain practical experience. I am a fast learner and not afraid of some hard work.
I am open to working anywhere, I am drawn to the coast primarily as I have always lived by the sea but I also love to hike so mountains are good too, This depends on if I can get a workaway in these areas, I have no fixed agenda so the order of travel can be changed if required let's see where the path takes me.
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Helping with Tourists
Help with Computers / internet
I have a degree in IT, and I have been working in this industry for the last 15 years.. I have worked in lots of other jobs along the way too, such as; cleaner, bar worker, worker in a busy guest house, and waitressing to name but a few.
I have always been passionate about helping people and have participated in many volunteering programs such as, teaching English to refugees, adult literacy classes, fundraising for the less fortunate by climbing mountains or sponsored walks, and have been involved in the Meals on Wheels initiative in my local area.
I have a lust for life as the song goes and would see the glass half full than half empty, I am looking forward to meeting all of you fantastic people along the way !
