  • Description


    Hello workaway community!

    This is David, Veronica & Libero. Our family has recently settled in Spain ( Catalunya) in a small beach town half way between Barcelona and Tarragona.

    We have taken on a house that was pretty badly kept and with love we are bringing it back to life! It is a beautiful space with a nice garden that needs work in order to start our vegetable garden as we want to reduce our external buying to the minimum by 2019.

    We are yoga and Acroyoga practitioners and facilitators and we enjoy to use those disciplines as a way of living. We meditate daily sometimes we do it together while others we keep it as an individual practice. We are learning to do Kirtans :)

    CLEAN IS A MUST, we are very particular on this point. Respectful, Playful and shared is how we like to keep the atmosphere at home.

    We are in need of :

    !!! painting outside // some basic wood construction // gardening !!! Those are the main jobs that are needed to done atm to make the place running in a more self-sufficent way :)

    Someone who has EXPERIENCE painting outdoors and building wood structures. Couples are preferred at the moment and if you should be able to work on your own. If you just did it once for fun We appreciate your honesty and maybe welcome you at a later stage but not now.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There is a lot of beautiful landscapes around here, The beach is walking distance as well as the train. From us we want to share our gnamy gnamy cooking and all the experiences that enabled us to get here today in this process of moving into a simpler healthier lifestyle. we like to have enjoyable conversations on the many aspects of life, share cultural differences and our love for yoga.

    We like to meditate and sing ( we are now learning to make kirtans).
