Helper Description:

Hello, my name is Zarja Kambic. I am a traveler and explorer from Slovenia (Europe).

My current destination for volunteer work is Canada! I'm here since the end of June and plan to stay one year, to work and travel, I have a work visa for Canada and I can't wait to do some volunteer work there!

My goal is to really in depth explore the countries that I go to and meet locals, to get to know their culture better.

- I want to explore the World, do and learn as many new things as possible and meet as many new interesting people from different cultures as I can!! :)

- I'm also a travel writer and blogger and I'm making interviews with interesting people, making videos, taking photos and writing articles about countries that I explore. I'm following my passion of traveling and learning about other cultures and I would like to share this with others.

I'm going to Canada in June. I want to explore the beautiful nature, do a lot of hiking, see the wildlife and meet local people! I really wish to find interesting Helpx exchange work, to meet local people, get the chance to stay with them and help them around, to get to know the culture better and get the taste of real local life!

So if you are a HelpX host from Canada and find me interesting and think I could be helpful, please don't hesitate to contact me! :)

I love nature, animals, hiking, snorkeling, photography, I am hard working, I love to cook (!), I am fun, friendly and very social.

4.) I love to explore other cultures. I was living in a MAORI VILLAGE in New Zealand, working and living together with Maori. I was discovering their culture and made a lot of Maori friends already before. I found their culture so fascinating that I really wished to live with them, to explore it even deeper, to get to understand their way of life and philosophy, legends, mythology and history.
