  • Description

    We are a couple from Brazil; came to Europe to get Barbara's Italian citizenship. Then, we went to Germany to work during a while. After that, we went to our first Workaway (still in Germany) in a Buddhist Center. We also lived in Portugal, France, UK, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Italy, Austria... All those countries were such a great opportunities and incredible experiences, which we've learnt a lot, in various aspects! Our first and main objective our travels and pilgrimages always was trying to get a simple, good and quality of life; not to work just focused in money, but knowing new cultures, new people, their languages, share and exchange experiences. Plus, and the most important, making good new friendships, that's precious to us.
    We are polite, quiet and like to watch movies, nature walking, do meditate, study philosophy, learn new cultures, art and mythology, listen to music, stories, traveling, swimming, take pictures, pets, etc... we love activities aimed at helping people, about compassion, interconnectedness among beings. In Brazil, we used to practice buddhism, meditation, philosophy and esoterism as well.
