Hi! first of all thanks for looking to our Workaway experience, for us, that means that we are doing the things right. Feel free to look, ask us every thing you want so you can ve sure that’s what you are looking.
Talking about us, we are a couple from two countries. Rodrigo (37) from Chile and Camilla (36) from Italy that with a lot of love have Emma (1 Year old).
We start our activity last year, where we have 3 hectares of land with 3 houses. At the beginning it was a mess, because it was abandone. Now after some work we finish the first house, working in the second one and hoping to win some money so in a short future start with the third one.
We live in the middle of olive's fields with more that 300 trees. From our land you can see Segesta Temple (one of the most important of Italy), the sea and the mountain Inch. So in this way you are in the middle of the island and the real Sicilia.
Before being farmers (or at least trynig), Camilla is an architect and Rodrigo is an engineer. Being a couple one of the things that we like the most it’s traveling and doing sports (paragling, sailng, biking, camping, trekking, etc…). That helps us a lot with our dream, because, we know a lot of different cultures, places and people, that it’s directly involve because we choose all of our favorite things that we know to mix them and build our dream.
What do we ask?
We want you to be one more in the team, to help us in what you can, share we us your experience. If you can, teach us something that we don’t know every day it’s important to learn something more.
In our house we speak Italian, Spanish and English but we also know something about french… Any way after traveling for many countries we know that is you want to communicate it’s always posible, even if we don’t speak the same language.
