  • Description


    A year ago I moved to Mundaú, in northeastern Brazil. I came here attracted by the fabulous weather and trade winds sailing since I'm looking for some land. I am 45 years, of which the last 20 were spent at sea, sailing from Cape Horn to the Svalbard archipelago. Today I live in a beach house and the project is turning, slowly but surely, into a center for water sports; as it is located between the beach and the Mundaú river, suitable for all the water sports.
    I'm busy in the project all day, but swimming, walking along the beach at low tide, enjoy the sunsets is something I do every day.

    Hace un año que vivo en Mundaú, en el nordeste de Brasil. Llegué aquí atraída por el fabuloso clima y los vientos alisios ya que soy navegante buscando un poco de tierra firme. Tengo 45 años, de los cuales los últimos 20 los viví en el mar, navegando desde el Cabo de Hornos hasta el archipiélago de Svalbard. Hoy vivo en una casa en la playa y el proyecto es convertirla, lenta pero seguramente, en un centro de deporte naúticos; ya que está situada entre la playa y el río Mundaú, apto para todo los deportes acuáticos.
    Estoy ocupada en el proyecto todo el día, aunque nadar, caminar por la playa con la marea baja, disfrutar de las puestas de sol es algo que hago a diario.

    The most interesting situation so far is maintaining quintal, with more than 50 coconut trees and sand invades everything. You simply remove falling coconuts (with which we do everything: oil, aresanías). Keep the house, the maresía eat all materials in record time, it is also a constant task. As an artistic project are the murals I have thought ... and that they may occur to you!

Como proyecto artístico están los murales que tengo pensados... y los que se les puedan ocurrir a ustedes!

    I have a room for visitors, with hammocks, inside the house with a beautiful garden view. You can stay in tents, if you prefer, there are bath and separate shower outside the house. Thanks to the equatorial climate life can be carried on the outside with pleasure. We share the kitchen and other facilities.

    Tengo un cuarto para visitas, con hamacas, dentro de la casa con una hermosa vista al jardín. Pueden alojarse en carpas, si lo prefieren, hay baño y ducha independiente fuera de la casa. Gracias al clima ecuatorial la vida puede ser llevada en el exterior con sumo placer. Compartimos la cocina y las demás facilidades.

    What else ...

    I live alone on the beach house. I am never really alone, my large family visits are constant in the holiday season. I've had volunteers living at home always, only without workaway and experiences have been incredible. I like meeting people, I speak English, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian and am willing to learn your language!

    Vivo sola en la casa de la playa. Sola en realidad nunca estoy, visitas de mi numerosa familia son constantes en la época de vacaciones. He tenido voluntarios viviendo en casa desde siempre, solo que sin Workaway y las experiencias han resultado increíbles. Me gusta mucho conocer gente, hablo inglés, alemán, español, portugués e italiano y estoy dispuesta a aprender tu idioma!
