  • Description


    We are a family of half Argentines, my husband Dante and I, and half Brazilian my sons Luca (16) and Malena (13). We live in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil. What we like most in life is to know new cultures, to be travelers (and not tourists), and everything that this implies: the culinary, the music, the arts and the different way of life of the people outside world. Although we work / study a lot, we always make time for some homemade pizzas, call friends for dinner or watch a movie. We are very homemade. My husband works with genetic research, my children study and they dedicate themselves to music and art and I teach Spanish. We all practice physical activity. We have already been to many places in Argentina and Brazil, we know Paraguay, Uruguay and Chile, we have already stayed in tents, hostel, family homes and hotels. We love everything

    We are organizing a 40-day trip to an English-speaking country; my husband is studying English once a week and he uses it a lot in his work, my children study it in school and they use it a lot in series and music, but I do not and I spend my day talking in Spanish and Portuguese. Thus, we would like a person, a couple or a family native in English and willing to live with us speaking only English, for 15 or 30 days. They could accompany us in our routine from Monday to Thursday (flexible), dividing with us the chores of the house as well as the preparation of the food and take advantage of traveling from Thursday night until Monday morning. Examples of distance: Rio de Janero 729Km (there are buses that leave the city 21 hours and arrive at Rio 07 am), São Paulo 328 km, nearest beach 421 km, Brasilia 698 km, Iguaçu Falls 980 km (there are buses departing from the city at 15 and arrive at the Falls at 06 am). To all these destinations it is possible to go by bus, stay in the city 3/4 days and return, as well as there are airplanes. The city and its surroundings already have attractive attractions such as the Museum of Coffee, the house of the artist Portinari, in Jardinopolis, the Pinguin bar, the Thermas do Laranjais Park, in Olympia, various waterfalls and parks, etc.
