Open to finding a travel companion for the North Island- future dive buddy/teach me to surf?
Currently in Riwaka, near Nelson. Available next week during the holidays- maybe another volunteer would like to have the week off? I would be happy to fill in.
Currently on a one-way trip, going where time takes me. At the moment I'm in Auckland, and I plan to work my way north and west for the summer. I plan to stay for a week or two in a few different cities along the way until I find a place iI really feel connected to. Then at the end of the summer iI plan to move to Nelson or south to look for a more serious job for the winter (to recoup the costs of traveling). I'm happy to work for accommodation for a while but iI will be looking for a casual income wherever possible. Ideally if iI stay and work in one city for a month or more, I would like to pick up a couple of shifts a week at a cafe or plant nursery or maybe dive shop. So if that arrangement would work for you please let me know. My schedule is very flexible for the moment.
I don't plan to buy a car, if at all possible. I understand the benefits of having a car but I would prefer not to have such a liability (since iI would probably need to buy an old car with lots of km) especially if I'm not going to have much of an income for the foreseeable future. So please understand my transportation constraints.
As for my abilities..
I have gardening skills because I've worked at a plant nursery in Arizona, and iI now have some helpx experience with setting up a garden. I am dive certified.. Not sure if that will ever be relevant to helpx but I sure hope it is. I am good with kids and animals. I have a lot of experience in customer service. I also have a certificate to teach English as a foreign language. And I can cook. I'm not afraid of hard work.
