  • Description

    Hello hello! Even though we decided to set sail separately, Pato and I, Joana, decided to keep the profile so we can both have new experiences and meet new people through it!

    I am a biologist, so everything green and natural catches my attention. I'm into photography, conservation, environmental protection and sustainable living. I'm looking forward to learning more about conservation, as well as the hospitality business.

    As for Pato, he’s a singer-songwriter who carries his guitar all around and he is always up for a chat. He likes to entertain and to teach music. Positivity is his middle name and he’s addicted to finding new recipes for the new food he finds everywhere he goes.

    We both love hanging out over good food, talking about life. We’re interested in learning about permaculture and organic farming, natural building and local cuisine.

    Hola, aún que sigamos ahora viajando a diferentes destinos, Pato y yo, Joana, decidimos mantener el perfil conjunto para que podamos seguir disfrutando de nuevas oportunidades y de conocer gente.

    Yo soy bióloga, así que todo que sea natural la fascina. Me encanta la fotografía, conservación, protección ambiental y sostenibilidad. Asi que quiero aprender más sobre conservación y hospitalidad.

    Pato es un cantautor y disfruta de entretener y enseñar música junto a su guitarra. Positivismo es lo suyo y es adicto a testear nuevas recetas com nuevos ingredientes que va encontrando en sus viajes.

    Nos gusta mucho disfrutar de la compañía de otros, aún más si acompañados de buena comida. Queremos aprender sobre como crear huertos orgánicos, permacultura, bio-construcción y cocina local.
