  • Description

    Boas! Here's Alice and Francesco, pleased to meet you!
    We are an italian couple living in Lisbon, the city where we first met and now live together.

    Why workawaying?
    Well, after another year closed in our house working on the laptop we have sooo much hunger for learning, working with our hands and live different experiences, we were basically dreaming to go back to volunteering and traveling the whole year...and finally the time has come again!
    We think of workawaying as a way to have a good time outside of the city, escaping from its stress and mainly as a way to meet and live different realities, learn new skills and help as much as possible, thinking of a future in the nature building up our own community!

    Francesco: I'm 28, from Brescia, Italy, and I live in Lisbon since 5 years already; I already did 2 workaways in the past on my own and two together with Alice, and very very much loved the experiences I had and the people I met!
    After graduating at university in Sociology I tried to open a vegan restaurant in my hometown, wich did not succeded...because of this I moved to Portugal looking for fresh experiences and here I am =) I ended up here almost by chance, but I'm a great Lisbon and Portugal lover ; here I studied video production and now I work as freelance video editor and animator, and bartender during the weekends. I've always been playing music, mainly bass guitar and now classical guitar, playing samba and bossa nova.
    I consider myself really sociable, calm, proactive and easygoing person.

    Alice: I'm 27 and from Genova, Italy, and I just finish my Master in Architecture.
    In the past 5 years I have been living abroad through scolarships, starting from Spain and heading to Mexico, Brasil and now, since almost 3 years, Portugal; the past year I worked in an architecture studio in Lisbon.
    I consider myself a really sunny person, active and goodvibed, and I'm really interested in learning something about bio architecture, landscaping and permaculture, thinking about my studies but mostly about my future. Besides that, I have some experience and would love to learn more about clay, modeling, handcraft works, sewing and painting.
