I am traveling around Spain and Portugal in my van, looking for the next step in life. Contact me.
Spain, or open to suggestions...
I want to explore Spain and/or Europe during the month of September, or longer. Although I can't always spend much time at one place, hosts can consider me like a consultant, as my varied skills and experience can be useful in self-sufficient operations.
I am an American, living in Spain, and run a self-suffiecient homestay in the Pyrenees. We have been hosting helpx folk for over 9 years now, and have met lots of great people.
I am a skilled worker. My experiences include- construction (morters, rockwork, tiles, grout, carpentry, restoration, plumbing, sanding, painting, adobes, roofing, electricity, and most machines that go with this work).
gardening (managing mulitple large organinc gardens, can work with tillers as well as tractors)
vineyards (managing multiple large orgainic vineyards, all the various prunings, plowing with tractor), orchards (above all olive and almond, lots of pruning and recuperating, lots of shears, hatchets, axes, and chainsaws), and various other skills such as cooking (also expert with fire and woodstoves), working with hens, rabbits, pigs, horses, ect. I can slaughter. Distilling. Making soap from lye. Making lye from ash. Foraging for wild plants, mushrooms, and truffles.
I can also do certain mechanic work, as well as weld.
I will probably travel with tools.
My professional work has mainly been teaching, music and languages. I have various university degrees.
And I'm a nice guy that plays lots of instruments and sings songs.
Also, I may be interested in looking for work, if anyone is looking for a long-term commitment from someone with my profile, we may talk employment. Also if there is work in the area.
I speak English, Spanish, Aragonese, Catalan, and intermediate French and Potuguese.
