Right now looking for travel buddies for a roadtrip from SFO to Yosemite and possibly further in the west (Tahoe lake, Death Valley, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon). I'm neat, respectful and generally in good mood ;) I love photography, nature and listen to people's stories. It sounds like you? Just write me right away ! :)
Hey, my name is GaŽl, I lived in a lovely medium-sized city on the West coast of France. I graduated last year and I worked in IT for a few months then. This was an interesting experience that helped me to grow. But I wanted to explore other paths and that's why I decided to travel and volunteer to get news perspectives of life.
Indeed what really inspires me is nature, people, adventures and authentic human relationships! I have been exploring different part of Europe +Canada, and through each of my trips I was surprised and amazed by what I discovered. The people and their culture, the beauty of natural sites as well as the charm of the cities. But beyond that, I believe that traveling help to connect with people and grow as a person.
WHY I AM A HELPER
I want to contribute in building a better world. But what a paradox: while I've been feeding my brain with knowledge at school for years, I still don't know what to do with my hands.
So I thought HelpX-ing is a great way to put my energy in, doing something more concrete for people that would impact positively our society and possibly our planet.
I wish to share meaningful time, gain new experiences, and give myself a chance to maybe discover my true calling on way, who knows...
WHAT I CAN DO
In a more practical way, I am willing to help you in various fields. I am experienced with
GARDENING (mowed grass, pruned rose bushes, picked up veggies, pull out plants, built a composter), CARPENTRY (participated in a series of workshops, made small objects, repaired a deck, saw wood planks and built a wooden wall), or COOKING (made various dishes from different cuisine). In addition I am also good at photography and website development.
Also very much interested in opportunities like organic farming, reception, hostelling, housekeeping, or child care.
I'm hard working, eager to learn and have no problem with getting my hands dirty. Any physical work is appreciated.
WHO I AM (in a few words)
I used to describe myself as an enthusiastic, curious and positive person. But my friends rather say I'm outgoing and fun to be around :) I used to bike daily, I love hiking, and I feel good with the sun shinning on my face.
Period of availability : September through early December 2017
Area : California, West of USA, Mexico...
I offer my time, energy and enthusiasm in exchange for basic food/lodging.
As part of my helpx experience I hope to enjoy the local natural beauty or attractions, and make lots of great friends!
