  • Description

    Hello beautiful work-awayers & hosts,

    **Please note: We understand that it's difficult to host us now during the Covid-19 pandemic. We 100% are respectful of social distancing and other protocols. We will quarantine when we arrive in Portugal after flying.**

    What an amazing platform to meet people all over the world by sharing stories, working together and making long life memories. Thank you for being on this platform, it says a lot about you!

    We are a couple, Femke, 25 from the Netherlands and Lara 30 from South Africa — welcome to our profile!

    Femke is a graphic designer/photographer (@lacreativefem) and Lara has a degree in hospitality/tourism management. We are both experienced travelers and have been in many places over the past few years. We met in New Zealand about 3 years ago and we have been working and traveling together since. We think it's absolutely the best way to broaden your horizon!

    We are ready to settle down together and we will be moving to Portugal end of this year (2020). We would love to connect with Portuguese locals to experience the 'real' way of living in Portugal. We'd like to share stories and ideas together to create a beautiful journey while staying and working at your happy place :-)

    We both love creating, cleaning, gardening, babysitting, taking care of animals and cooking. We are happy to help/assist with anything possible. We both love the outdoors and especially surfing, hopefully Portugal will surprise us with the many good sets of waves you guys have over there!

    Thank you for taking the time to read our profile,

    Stay safe and hopefully we can talk soon,

    Femke & Lara
