Hello my potential future hosts! This is currently my 18 month and 9th experience volunteering.
So... Hii! I'm Jose, a 22 years old guy from a lovely village in the mountains of the Canary Islands (Spain). I'm shy at the beggining, polite, correct, honest, not a maths person, thoughtful, I laugh more easily than I would like and I'm very sensitive, that's what people say.
No drugs, don't smoke.
WHAT I'VE DONE BEFORE:
Chainsawing | strimming |chopping firewood | used weedkiller | sanding |restoring a roof | painting | sailing | 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 | worm compost | repairing fences | building stairs on the soil | some basic carpentry work.
WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO LEARN:
Everything about building, permaculture, and every handy skill.
(If I'm learning one of these it's not a problem to work a lot of extra hours).
I began volunteering for two reasons:
1. -To scape from a bad economic situation at home (volunteering is even cheaper than living at my own house without a job)
2. -Experience to add later to my CV.
After 9 months I came back to the conventional lifestyle, to my place, but I couldn't go through. It was just too stressing (to be surrounded of people dreaming materialists stuffs 24/7) and I felt I wouldn't fit anymore. So now I planned to keep going on with volunteering, AuPair, mini-jobs...
My goal is to have a 100% eco-friendly way of living and also help others in this (Water, food, clothes or every thing I can consume). Just because those simple things are enough to make me feel happy. I also began a videoblog, I would like showing that "doing the right thing" is exciting, you can travel, meeting special people and being part of awesome projects.
Sooo, that's it. That's me.. Hope to hear from you soon :)
