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