    Description

    We are a simple family: mother, Filipa daughter, my husband and my daughter also have 3 dogs and a live cat in a simple house by the sea in a small fishing village.
    I am Venezuelan and I came to Portugal at the age of 22, I am currently 51, I was a mother at 42, my daughter is currently 9 years old and of course she is the princess of the house. Some time ago we bought a small mountain house to spend some time there and my husband has been gradually restoring it, after talking to us about the workaway we thought it would be an interesting way to get some help and at the same time meet different people.

    Somos uma família simples eu mãe, Filipa filha , meu marido e minha filha também tem 3 cães e uma gata vivo numa casa simples á beira mar numa pequena vila piscatória.
    Eu sou venezuelana e vim para Portugal com 22 anos de idade, atualmente tenho 51, fui mãe aos 42 a minha filha tem atualmente 9 anos de idade e como é obvio é a princesa da casa. Há algum tempo atrás compramos uma pequena casa na montanha para passar alguma temporada lá e o meu marido tem ido restaurando aos poucos, depois de nos falarem do workaway achamos que seria uma forma interessante de obter alguma ajuda e ao mesmo tempo conhecer pessoas diferentes.
