  • Description

    I'm a vegetarian teacher from Brazil, who started to travel around the world in March of 2017. My plan is to travel around the world for 10 years in total, followed, and visit at least one hundred countries. Until now I have been in UK, Ireland, Spain, Catalonia, Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Senegal, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Malta, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Croatia, Bosnia Herzegovina and Czech Republic. I try to stay at least from two weeks to one month in each country so then I can really feel it how everything works, to meet people, to know and to learn the culture.

    I travel in a really low budget, almost without money, just hitchhiking, camping in the wild and doing volunteer work. I do not own a mobilhe phone for the last 6 ½ years, so no WhatsApp or any kind of Social Network. The best way to contact me is via Workaway or email.

    I choose to do volunteer work because is my way to give it back all the generosity and kindness I've been receiving from everyone in everywhere I passed, plus it is a great way to learn more about the culture of a country: spending some time with locals =)

    My graduation is in Linguistic and Literature so I can teach Portuguese, English, Literature and Linguistics. I already worked as AuPair in Ireland, Spain and Egypt, both for three months, and my kids over there had between 5 and 12 years. I can provide references from them.

    I love to cook, to watch movies, to read, to write, to do any kind of handmade / craft work, decoration and restoration work and I also love animals. I love nature, peaceful and remote places, far from big cities and busy life.

    I believe that life is to be enjoyed so I'm a positive person who try to laugh as much as possible and always try to see the best side of everything, always trying to learn something from every situation =)

  • What else ...

    Important Note: Through the pass of the years using Workaway, I had some great hosts but also some hosts, who according to what I believe, don’t follow or don’t understand the meaning of Workaway. Apart of the exchange of culture and exchange of help, it’s also an exchange of mutual respect and consideration. Unfortunately in some houses, I was treated just as someone who comes to work or a maid. So to avoid that again, I would like to let it clear that if we are sharing the house, I will be more than glad to help you with the cleaning of common areas, dishes and cooking, apart of my Workaway jobs. But I cannot hold full responsibility for this duties or to wash the car, for example. Workaway is also an opportunity to learn something new, some new jobs and discovering new abilities and that is what I am looking for.
