  • Description

    [mɑʀɛin]:
    1. From the sea
    2. Wandering dreamer with a Dutch passport who feels most at home in Berlin

    I think I'm quite an open free spirit and I'm very curious about other cultures, alternative views on life and interesting facts. Serious topics should balance themselves out with silly random stories and a good laugh. Just in case we don't know anything to say to each other anymore I've always got some card games with me to pass the time. Though I don't expect my hosts, surfers and fellow travelers to entertain me constantly; I'm independent and I enjoy spending time alone as well.

    Before I discovered Workaway I already volunteered a lot through different organisations. For example: I worked on an organic farm in the mountains north of Sofia via WWOOF Bulgaria, I did the same on Pico Island (Azores) via WWOOF Portugal, I taught English to slum kids near Jakarta with AIESEC Indonesia and I helped with and enjoyed the most wonderful theater festival called Oerol on the island Terschelling nearly every year.

    Apart from all my voluntary work exchange projects I for example worked in a bakery, a candy shop, entertained kids on camp sides, did a lot of cleaning, worked at festivals and music venues and I've got experience in customer support.

    In my free time I enjoy singing in a pop choir, taking ballet classes, analog photography experiments, hula hooping, campfires, playing games, meeting friends in a park or at the beach and of course traveling around the world to explore different cultures.

  • What skills do you have?

    I speak Dutch, German and English, I know all about analog photography, I am a pro in cleaning toilets and showers, I am very social with animals and people, I enjoy garden work and farming, but am still in a learning stage and have difficulties sometimes distinguishing weeds from crops. Which might not be too bad, since I am very interested in learning about edible weeds. In general I think I am a quick learner and am usually able to adjust easily to new (working) environments.
