    Description

    We are a new family with our first baby being born October last year.

    We live in a rural area 40 minutes from downtown Brasília. There are many walks to do nearby, even some streams where you can go and cool off! We plant part of our food (some fruit, cassava, and a somewhat abandoned vegetable garden), we are mainly vegan (sometimes vegetarian) and we cook all our meals.

    Fernando can teach you a lot about therapeutic body practices. He loves to cook, fix things around the house and take care of the vegetable garden. He also practices meditation, yoga and Chi Kung (Chinese practice of meditation in motion); and it will be a pleasure to teach you some of those.

    Carolina knows a lot about pregnancy and childbirth. She loves taking care of our baby. She can teach you about pregnancy and maybe, if time allows, yoga philosophy.

    Before the pandemic, we used to travel a lot. We lived in Australia for one year and traveled through Southeast Asia for two years. We miss traveling a lot, and that's how we got the idea of ​​welcoming travelers / interesting people to our home. Therefore, your presence here will help us to travel without leaving home.

    We mainly need a nice company, with common values ​​and interests. In addition, we need help with daily things like preparing and cooking meals, organizing the kitchen, taking care of the vegetable garden and our new planted trees. And if you do massage, even better. Our backs have been quite sore from carrying a baby around (and if you don't know how to massage and want to learn, Fernando can teach you.)

    CHORES
    Taking care of the kitchen, preparing food (you don't need to be a cook or anything, but if you know how to make vegan dishes it will be wonderful).
    Help with the various tasks of a home.
    Working on the veggie garden, watering the trees, harvesting...
    And adopt the vegan / vegetarian diet while you're here. You will prepare your own breakfast, we provide the basics (fruits, granola, bread - we don't do coffee, but feel free to BYO).
    Sometimes we will do the tasks together.
    Working hours: A maximum of 5 hours per day. Working hours are very flexible and goes according to what we need to do on the day. It is more likely to be well under 5 hours.

    In addition, we hope you are a pleasant company, that we can talk about cool things and travels (we love travel stories!).
    But we also like quietness, silence and privacy. So we will usually chat during meals and chores, and the rest of the time you will be free. In your free time, we would like you not to stay indoors with us (you can stay in your room, in the hammock outside or go hiking, etc.). This is not rigid, but it is for us not to be under pressure that we have to give you attention all the time and not to lose privacy inside our home. There is always room for dialogue, we can adjust. We are new to workway, so there's a lot to learn.

    We are very nice people, but if you are the social type who wants to be interacting and chatting all the time, maybe this opportunity is not for you. Think that for you it will be like a personal retreat, in nature.

    YOUR ACCOMMODATION
    You will have your own bathroom and your own bedroom (it is a very small room with a single bed). The room is outside the house, but attached to it, so you have privacy. Next to the room there is a small kitchen that we don't use, with a sink and a small fridge that you can use (you will probably prepare your breakfast there). And you can also camp if you want, there is plenty of space (couples are welcome!).
    The minimum time is 1 month, and if it works out we can extend it.
    While you are here we hope that you do not go out (apart from the essentials) and that you are very careful about the pandemic.
    - We have towels and beddings.


    INTERNET
    You will have free access to the internet (we only switch off at night, around 9:30 pm, and turn it on again around 8am on weekends and holidays and 7am on weekdays).

    Any doubts, please feel free to get in touch. We are looking forward to have you here. =)
    Fernando & Carolina


    PORTUGUÊS

    Somos uma família jovem. Nossa primeira filha nasceu em outubro do ano passado.

    Moramos em uma área rural a 40 minutos do centro de Brasília. Há muitos passeios para fazer nas proximidades, até mesmo alguns riachos onde você pode ir e se refrescar! Nós plantamos parte de nossos alimentos (algumas frutas, mandioca, e uma horta um pouco abandonada), somos principalmente veganos (às vezes vegetarianos) e cozinhamos todas as nossas refeições.

    Fernando pode te ensinar muito sobre práticas terapêuticas corporais. Ele adora cozinhar, consertar coisas pela casa e cuidar da horta. Ele também pratica meditação, ioga e Chi Kung (prática chinesas de meditação em movimento); e será um prazer te ensinar algumas dessas coisas.

    Carolina sabe muito sobre gravidez e parto e é instrutora ioga. Ela adora cuidar da nossa bebê. Ela pode te ensinar sobre gravidez e talvez filosofia do ioga.

    Antes da pandemia, costumávamos viajar muito. Moramos na Austrália por um ano e viajamos pelo sudeste da Ásia por dois anos. Sentimos muita falta de viajar, e foi assim que tivemos a ideia de receber viajantes/pessoas interessantes na nossa casa. Portanto, sua presença aqui nos ajudará a viajar sem sair de casa.

    Precisamos principalmente de uma companhia bacana, com valores e interesses comuns. Além disso, precisamos de ajuda com as coisas diárias como preparar e cozinhar refeições, organizar a cozinha, cuidar da horta e das novas árvores que foram plantadas. E se você fizer massagem, melhor ainda. Nossas costas estão doloridas de carregas nossa bebê (e se você não sabe fazer massagem e tem vontade de aprender, Fernando pode te ensinar.)

    TAREFAS
    Cuidar da cozinha, preparar alimentos (não precisa ser cozinheira ou nada disso, mas se souber fazer pratos veganos será maravilhoso).
    Ajuda com as tarefas diversas de uma casa.
    Mexer na horta, molhar plantas, colher frutas e vegetais...
    E adotar a dieta vegana / vegetariana enquanto estiver aqui. Seu café da manhã você prepara, forneceremos frutas, granola, pão.
    Algumas vezes faremos as tarefas juntos.
    Horas de trabalho: No máximo 5 horas por dia. As horas de trabalho são bem flexíveis e vão de acordo com o que precisamos fazer no dia. E mais provável que seja bem menos de 5 horas.

    Além disso, esperamos que você seja uma companhia agradável, que possamos conversar de coisas legais e viagens (adoramos histórias de viagens!).
    Mas também gostamos de quietude, silêncio e privacidade. Então normalmente vamos bater papo durante as refeições e tarefas, e no resto do tempo você estará livre. No seu tempo livre a gente gostaria que você não ficasse dentro de casa com a gente (pode ficar no seu quarto, na rede lá fora ou fazer caminhadas, etc). Isso não é rígido, mas é pra gente não ficar na pressão que tem que te dar atenção o tempo todo e pra não perdermos a privacidade dentro da nossa casa. Sempre tem espaço pro diálogo, a gente vai se ajustando. É a primeira vez que fazemos essa experiência.

    Somos pessoas bem legais, mas se você é do tipo social que quer ficar interagindo e batendo papo o tempo todo, talvez essa proposta não seja pra você. Pense que pra você vai ser como um retiro pessoal, na natureza.

    SUA HOSPEDAGEM
    Você terá seu próprio banheiro e seu próprio quarto (é um quarto bem pequeno com uma cama de solteiro). O quarto fica fora da casa, mas anexo a ela, para que você tenha privacidade. Ao lado do quarto há uma pequena cozinha que não usamos, com pia e frigobar que você pode usar (provavelmente você vai preparar seu café da manhã lá). E você também pode acampar se quiser, há muito espaço (casais são bem-vindos!).
    O tempo mínimo é 1 mês, e se der certo podemos estender.
    Enquanto estiver aqui esperamos que você não saia e que seja muito cuidadosa em relação à pandemia.
    - Se você puder trazer sua toalha, ajuda muito a gente. Temos roupa de cama.


    INTERNET
    Você terá acesso livre à internet (só desligamos à noite, por volta de 21h30, e religamos por volta de 8h em fins de semana e feriados, e 7h nos dias de semana).

    Tomara que dê tudo certo, você possa vir e possamos passar um tempo bem legal juntos.
    Fernando & Carolina
