Hello out there!!
I would like to travel with somebody that can maybe teach me something like carpentry, plumbering, electricity, fishing, permaculture...
I'm not very skillful and I would like to learn as much as possible in those fields, in exchange I can show you how to get fit, flexible, break dancing, some french, spanish and how to be cheap travelling :))))) Hope to hear from you soon!
I can give my phone number so we can meet each other a little bit before giving the step :)))))
Wherever that suits my bio :)
Who/How am I?
My name is Josť, I'm 22 years old spanish guy, I'm from a lovely little village in Gran Canaria (Canary Islands).
Im a 'wanna-be' ecologist-activist and a YouTube blogger. Shy person at the beggining, but very friendly later. People says I'm serious but I think Im just calm and thoughtful. I avoid conflicts and when they appear I like to talk to solve them (I think everybody is right by their own reasons). I'm polite and honest.
I like reading a good book, watching movies, documentaries or learning about culture. It's a joy to go to the theatre, museums, and local history it's allways interesting.
I'm also discovering my wild side, so now I take decissions by my instinct, I dont follow advices but my curiosity and I take "risky" decissions. I know I'm not perfect so I only ask to focus on my good parts, I think it's a good philosophy I also try to follow :)
I have taken care of different kids from 3 to 12 years old (volunteering and also AuPairing. I think I have certains skills about it, I would do it if its necessary but I would prefer to focus on jobs related with my priorities...
*Learning building and carpentry*
I set to myself as a target a period of 3 years from 2018 to begin to build my own house.
Ill work all day all week if I consider the task is interesting.
I joined to Helpx because I want to learn to be more independent, learning new languages and participate in projects related to enviroment, permaculture, handmaking, recycling, energy efficiency or similars, in summary generating positive stuffs, let my footprints behind and of course to live on my way and being happy :)))))
DURATION / ARRIVING / LEAVING:
I would like to arrive by hitchiking or bicycling
Its possible that I notificate that Im leaving just 2 days before (I dont like it but sometimes your current situation push yourself to this). It already happend to me 1 time in my 8 hosts.
Long term if the place offers possibilites to develop and match with my targets, motivates me, and my help is needed of course
WHAT I'VE DONE:
Chainsawing, strimming, chopping firewood, spreading weedkiller, sanding, restoring a roof, painting, sailing and freediving, cooking, cleaning and other basic houseworks, babysitting, some basic gardening, working in general duties in a hostel, translating a webpage, lacking and oiling wood, steering a safety boat, cleaning fish and preparing fillet (I still dont know how to do it properly), polishing bronze furniture... ask for more hahah
