  • Description

    We are Aina (from Catalonia) and Matt (from Australia/Ireland). Aina is a graduate in Environmental Biology, and Matt is a graduate in Physical Geography and Environmental Geosciences. We are both planning to start a master's degree later in 2021.

    We are a young, polite and adventurous couple eager to contribute to several families and communities, thus discovering new cultures and creating long-lasting and deep friendships with the people we meet along the way.

    Our main passion is the environment: being constantly in touch with nature is something that really motivates and inspires us while bringing us happiness. We are extremely interested in nature conservation, wildlife fauna, farming, agriculture and a sustainable way of living, thus improving society's use of the natural resources of the Earth.
    We also love exercising through either sports, such as hiking, basketball, yoga, kayaking and swimming.
    One of our favorite thing in this world are sunsets. And... we extremely love cheese!

    Our volunteering experiences have spanned 3 continents and range from humanitarian works with underprivileged communities to social music festivals and student groups to farming, agriculture and environmental conservation projects.

    Our main goal with workaway is to push ourselves out of our comfort zone, to contribute worldwide and to live lifelong experiences with you!

    Looking forward to meeting you soon!
