  • Description


    Hola amig@s 🔥! My name is Tiano and now Im living since 7 years ago, in one the last community areas at the foothills of ILALÓ. Ilaló is a very ancient volcano ( inside the area of Quito). I took the decision of joining with 2 more families to buy a piece of land, and start building our own houses. My Earthship is wood-earthen rustic house and its an ongoing project with still lots of things to be done.

    Things I Enjoy doing: Music Jaming, Long strolls near rivers and forests, Camping close to active volcanoes and watching the star late at night, making a small fire and gathering with friends in delightful significant conversations, listening to music without saying anything at all, applying simple spiritual principles to one's daily life, sharing once in a while some simple hacks for improving one's life ... and some other more!

    ✨ Im seeking a volunteer with some skills with :

    - Craft activities, hand work, musical education, wood work ✨

    ★ Things that makes me HAPPY to Explore and Share ★

    Good Mood,
    Percussion and Dancing,
    MindBending Radical notions about daily life,


    So you can have an idea of ​​how your days are going to be around here, I'll explain what normally happens:

    - We get up early / have breakfast / work 3 hours / have lunch / work 2 hours
    - The rest of the time is Free for cultural exchanging and exploring.


    - I love speaking Spanish most of the time. Spanish is such a beautiful language and I kind of expect that if you had considered traveling-workawaying in SouthAmerica, remember that this is the main language we are going to speak. I will totally help you with it and in no time we are going to have a great communication going on ;)

    - My house is a beautiful place to stay, has a unique ambiance that is going to affect you in a positive way. Remember that Im sharing my life, my friends and my family and I expect that you honor that. 🙏🏾✨

    I answer all request 💛 ... but I totally put a lot of interest to requests that are written in spanish (No google translations)
