    Description

    Welcome workawayers!

    My name is Gabriel. Im a surfer, chef, yoga instructor, writer and entrepreneur that enjoys a healthy lifestyle and nature. I have been traveling around the world for many years using the same type of service as offered via workaway. Therefore Im happy to host people from all corners of the globe making sure they get the best possible experience.

    Private accommodation (including kitchen) with stunning views are offered alongside certain base ingredients. I will also at times cook and share excellent food with you. Definitely when I have my food events. The beach and countryside is just around the corner so that you can enjoy the best of Buchepureo on your spare time.

    For most I need help with building a house. We have come along way but there's a lot of things to be done. Also we need to continue with our vegetable garden and some other stuff too. Read about over dream project down below.

    We want people that can adapt to different situations, be proactive, happy and that appreciate healthy food. I enjoy discussing philosophy, psychology, and ideas on how to improve ourselves and consequently the world. Please join me in sharing interesting ideas, good conversation and creating nice vibes.

    Best part: no television - bring a book!

    Im building on a dream project. On my property I have several units and in the future I would like to have a restaurant where we are using the local knowledge and ingredients, host open mic nights where artist collaborate, yoga and mindfulness center and much more. The ideas are plenty.

    My view on work is simple: it should not be strict. We will try to work five hours a day five days a week and if we do less you are free to do whatever you want. There might be days where we do not work at all and there might be days where we feel the 'flow' and work some extra hours.

    Foremost we need people with some or little experience in building a house. Being handy goes a long way. Its not hard and I will guide you and also be there alongside with you doing the same tasks. We are also interested in people with some experience in farming & permaculture. As I rent out some of the property it would also be appreciated if you have some kind of hospitality experience. Moreover I would be happy to host people that has great networking experience and that can help me grow my contacts and my project. The same goes for people with social media experience and adventure tourism experience.

    If you have building experience and/or is a carpenter I would love to have you over.

    Besides the above there are other daily tasks that might be available such as helping in and around the premises.

    Please read the other reviews to get a good feeling for the work that has been done.

    We include one meal per day and some basic ingrediants from time to time. You will be given a private accomodatiion in a seprated unit including your own kitchen. Please see pictures.
