In February of 2017, I bought myself a one-way ticket to Australia and, since then, I haven't been able to settle in one place. I enjoy integrating different cultures as a local as much as possible. On one of my Workaway experiences in Malaysia, I met my partner Patrick (our profiles are connected) and we've been happily sharing the same restless lifestyle. Our dream is to have a small farm/big garden, where we live peacefully and sustainably, surrounded by animals... only we have yet to decide where this will happen.
I am a linguistics enthusiast with a Bachelor's Degree in Translation and get easily excited with every opportunity to learn another language. I am a very curious person and love learning new things in general - even when I know I will probably be terrible at them. Writing and music are my biggest allies and I am particularly passioned about Portuguese literature and our wonderful Portuguese music artists. Portugal is quite a hidden gem. Good food is also one of my biggest pleasure in life and it's been almost 9 years since I last ate meat. I have always enjoyed working outdoors, gardening and landscaping, and am glad to do restoration jobs even if they require a bit more physical strength - it's how I keep in good shape. For fun, besides cooking and wandering around with my camera and a notebook, I enjoy a good evening of board games (chess in particular) and love savouring a glass of good wine at the end of a long day overlooking a beautiful sight.
Since I have started travelling, I've been growing as a remote professional (translating and editing) and am now able to (almost) support myself this way. I am committed to making this my full-time job for the future, even though I very much enjoy face-to-face communication, which leads me to believe that I will eventually own a small café, where I can sell my homemade jam and have coffee beans from all over the world - a simple and cosy place where passing travellers can hang out and take some time to work remotely as well, if they please.
I hope to get to meet you too someday and help out with your projects! :)
