Although I enjoy traveling solo, some adventures are better shared. Let me know if you´d like to team up!
Welcome to my profile!
My name is Laura, I am originally from Germany and 25 years old.
What I love? The mountains, nature, being active, animals, inspiration in all forms, meeting people and hearing their stories, sunrises, learning new things and obviously traveling.
I enjoy physical work and learning new skills. My professional background is in tourism and marketing, but I also have a lot of experience in customer service and retail.
What are my skills? I am a tourism professional and hold a bachelors degree in tourism management. I have work experience in online marketing, reception work at hostels, as a travel agent and skiing instructor.
What makes me a great helper? I am communicative, hands-on, open-minded and reliable. I am always curious to learn new skills and start projects.
What else? I have been a vegetarian for 17 years. I know this is important to know for hosts, who offer board. I am not picky at all and am happy with plain food and sides or I can also prepare my own meals. Let´s not let this get in the way of a great exchange experience :)
What am I looking for? This is not my first time visiting Canada. I studied abroad on Vancouver Island for 6 months and traveled a fair bit of BC and Alberta in 2015 and 2016. Needless to say I fell in love with this wonderful, ginormous country and am very grateful to have received a work permit, which gives me the chance to return to my second home.
As I am an avid rider and have loved horses all my life, I would very much like to work on a farm or guest ranch. In addition to that gaining more experience in the hospitality and tourism industry would be great.
