  • Description

    Description

    Just come back to Workaway after a long break, we start to miss hosting experience;)

    HELLO!
    We are Daria, Rui, Amelia and Chia!
    We are nature lovers, trying to live in a minimalistic and ecological way.
    Daria is an environmental engineer who make soaps, photos and yoga.
    Rui is a geologist who can make fire from two sticks and hang drums from gas bottles.
    We moved 3 years ago to an old house with a garden 2 km from the beach, and it has been never ending renovations ;)

    We have some project that we would like to start or finish (for example: greenhouse, panting walls, making new summer garden) but we are also looking for your creativity!

    We have a baby Amelia of 6 months and will be nice if you can babysit sometimes.
    Also, our second baby is a dog named Chia who loves long walks, she is also good with other dogs.
