Current Location: USA (no helpx in USA). Looking to return to Norway,
Liverpool UK area and parts unknown of Europe...
I love to work with my hands. I'm most interested in learning more sustainable methods of building. I have some experience with cobb building methods, and 22 odd years conventional building experience (almost all power tools and some chainsaw experience). Any work outdoors is ideal.. Hard labor is a free gym, as far as i see it, I like it, especially digging and splitting wood.
Cold, rainy and hot weathers are never a problem.
Looking to learn new languages and cultures (cooking, literature, dance, folklore, history). Anywhere where i can hike, bike (especially mountain bike), read, cook, build things, and have good conversations, is good for me.
I have no real experience with horses, but would really like to learn since my father was a very good rider but I've only recently lost my allergy to them, so it seems. I'd hapfpily work extra hours to learn
I'd also like to improve my wilderness knowledge, skills at building with only hand tools, and anything like what the native tribes, pioneers had to know.
Dogs are a major plus, especially large breed and pit bull mixes
I speak Spanish and English.
Trying to learn Norwegian (Bokmaal)
I am totally fine in situations where neither English or Spanish is spoken. I like the challenge and it helps me greatly to learn the new language
I am proficient in milonguero-style Argentine tango, too.
