About Me

CURRENT MISSION

see the world and find the best place to live :-)

ABOUT ME

At the moment I'm on my second WHV in Australia. I'm based in Melbourne and work in hospitality.
I am a very easy going, open, optimistic and friendly girl.
I enjoy being outside, be active and hang out with friends or meet new people. Game nights specially drinking games ;-) are a great opportunity to fill some boring evenings during the week.
Somehow I lost my passion for food. But I already started cooking new recipes. And I have this great idea of making my own bread, spread, pesto and crackers. And hopefully my passion will come back one day.
My Plan for the next years is to finish my time in Australia, save up a bit of money. Make my way around Asia, maybe find a volunteer position in teaching English. And one day I would love to volunteer on a turtle farm in Costa Rica.

PHILOSOPHY

Just be yourself! Have fun and please always have a smile on your face :-D
