    UPDATE - WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
    ***We are currently looking for a Workaway experience roughly from 19th to 25th September 2020 in SARDINIA!***
    We are fully aware of the current Covid-situation and very concerned about our and your health. Therefore, we'll be extremely careful with contacts and personal spaces, and would like you to be as well, perhaps providing a private room/bathroom/kitchen space (we have no problem at all in preparing our own food, considering the situation). We totally understand the need of precautions and are open to fully discuss them with you before arranging anything! :)

    WHO ARE WE?
    We are an italian married couple that are planning to move in the next months. We both felt in love with the sea, and would like to find our next home in a place next to it ((Mallorca; Balears; Spain; or Sardinia, Italy)). That is why we are looking at WorkAway as a chance for us not only to explore some suitable places, but also to start engaging with local people, learning more about local culture, and so much more!

    SOMETHING MORE ABOUT US...
    We've been married for almost eight years now (wow!) and together for 11. We share common love for travel, sea, sail (although only Fabio has currently some practical experience with that!), good food, music, nature, health. From one side we are very similar, but from others we also compensate for one another - that makes us always feel like a team :)

    WHAT IS WORKAWAY FOR US?
    Apart from being a nice opportunity to travel saving some money, we consider WA a great chance for people to meet and make the difference in each other's life. Give some help, work together, talk, as long as respect other people's spaces and needs: that's pretty much what we usually try to do when we travel.

I'll try to get ready for that - but at least you won't see me running away and never come back ;D);
