  • Description


    Hello ! My name is Debora, I’m 40 years old , I`m a biologist but today I work with tourism. I`m also a rock climber for over 15 years, and climbing is one of my passions in life. I have done my workaway about six years ago, it was a great experience and also very life changing!! Today I’m married with an italian guy (that I met on my trip) , his name is Max , we just built our house at this very amazing and touristic place: Serra do Cipó , Minas Gerais - Brasil.
    Serra do Cipó is located 1:30 hour from the capital of Minas Gerais, the city of Belo Horizonte. It`s a touristic destination with a National Park and many places to climb, hike, canoing etc.
    I have a travel agency we offer touristic adventures around our region. Rock Climbing is the main activity.
    Max works as gardener and construction. He is also a climber. We love nature and we do a lot of hikes , climbing , swimming at the river etc. We have two small dogs and a cat ! are also constructing two cabins for renting over here , so we keep busy!

    I can use some help wih my company`s social media and creation of content (pictures, videos etc).
    We can also use some help to clean our rooms for the guests, take care of the gardens and maintain the house .

    We like to eat healthy food, lots of salads and veggies , but we are NOT vegetarians. People with diet restrictions will have to cook for themselves. We eat meat twice a week more or less.

    We are very easygoing and open people, we appreciate a nice talk , cultural exchange and sports in general !

    Our house is brand new , we finished it on 2021. The room is on the first floor. It’s a large room with a comfortable queen size bed and the bathroom is right next to it. The shower is heated by solar panels. It’s very quiet and we have our dogs and cat that come in the house but are not allowed in the rooms.
    The kitchen is shared with us and we really like to share meals!
