    Description

    August / September 2020
    We are a french speaking family of 4 and we live in Port-Cartier, on the North Coast of Quebec, a fairly isolated place and far from big cities, but surrounded by sea and forest. We are quite frequent travelers: 4 years ago, we spent a year in South America and we just returned from a 6 month trip to Europe. We use workaway both as a volunteer abroad and as a host family at home.

    Bonjour, Hello, Hola!
    Nous sommes une famille québécoise de 4 et nous habitons à Port-Cartier, sur la Côte Nord du Québec, un endroit assez isolé et loin des grands villes, mais entouré de mer et de forêt. Nous sommes d'assez grands voyageurs: il y a 4 ans, nous avons passé un an en Amérique du Sud et nous revenons tout juste d'un voyage de 6 mois en Europe. Nous utilisons workaway autant comme volontaire à l'étranger que comme famille d’accueil à la maison.
