  • Description

    Hi!
    This is Giulia and Francesca from Italy, two young ladies passionate of travelling, exploring new cultures and traditions and meeting people from all over the word.
    Since 15 year we are travelling through Europe, Central Asia, India and South East Asia. Few month ago, we decided to pack our stuff and leave home for a gap year: India first, later Malaysiaand Australia, where we plan to spend 6 months. While in the country, we’d love to combine an itinerant travel with a volunteering experience: this will enable us to meet people and to participate in their project and activities, to exchange experiences and stories. Breathing the spirit of daily life and sharing the work with other people means for us feeling home away from home.
    Something about us.
    Giulia: I’m a freelance photographer, a translator (form french to italian) and an editor.
    I love decorating and creating art works, mainly with recycled materials and I'll be glad to help in any art project. Here you can see a selection of my traveling photos: http://giuliatabacco.blogspot.it/
    I did my first Workaway exchange in 2016 in the Azores island, in the Atlantic Ocean: a great experience that gave me the opportunity to meet people and different life style, something I’d really love to repeat.
    Francesca: I’m a social worker and a street art performer: I do shows with big bubble soaps (here my website: www.laziafra.com). I’m also an artist: I studied fine arts and love drawing, painting and decorating. In my workaway past experiences, I did some paintings and wall decorations, as you can see on our profile photos.
