  • Profile description
  • Hello Dear Hosts!

    I am Markus from Austria, traveling and living in Europe. I would describe myself as a calm, open and humorous person, who can work quite efficient when necessary.

    I like the mixture of traveling alone (in summer mainly walking/trekking/cycling/camping/long term nature retreats) and staying at places with inspiring people for a while where I can give a helping hand. In between I do some seasonal work to earn a bit of money for my daily expenses. This is basically what I am doing with passion and what makes me happy for the last 5 years after quitting my self-employed job as a Media-Designer in Berlin / Germany.

    A very important part in life became a daily meditation and contemplation practice.

    Some more dry but maybe significant information: I am 43 years old, a non-smoker, not into any drugs, "medicine" nor so called covid-vaccine, I don't drink alcohol.

    Currently I am traveling with a bicycle in Spain and I will head on to Portugal by mid of May.
    If you have a nice opportunity somewhere in Portugal or north-west Spain, just ask me. I am also open to go off my "planned" track if it feels right.

    if you have a nice project
    you need some help in maintaining your place in change of free food and housing,
    you need some professional electrician (Austrian papers) or professional media designer (BA) or a skilled handyman-allrounder for a bigger project and you are also willing to offer some payment according to the amount paid normally for a helper in your country...

    ...feel free to send a request
