    "As Workaway Ambassadors, this has been the best hosts we've met. It was our first Workaway experience, so we were a bit shy and unclear about the real meaning of Workaway. However thanks to Martin we fell in love with this way of travelling. We really enjoyed the farm life and being volunteers. We realized that this kind of experiences was for us the best way to challenge ourselves to get out of our comfort zone and meet amazing people"
