    Hello there:)
    We are Seray (Turkey) and Pablo (Spain). We met 3 years ago in Romania while doing our European volunteering projects which were about environment. We are together since then and have been traveling around.

    We both have had many international and local volunteering works such as gardening, cooking, taking care of kids also lots of experience working with tourists as receptionists, tour guides and English / Spanish language teachers. We are hard workers and always looking forward to learning new skills.

    Seray is a Psychologist. However, she's worked in many places and in a great variety of jobs. She is good at cooking, handiwork and painting. She loves yoga, reading and watching anime.

    Pablo graduated from Environmental Science. He is professional football trainer and used to work with kids as a trainer in a school as well as has got some touristic apartments to manage guest relations in Seville. He was working as a fundraiser for an NGO for refugees for 1,5 years as well. He is interested in recycling, maps, photography, pokemon and rapping (Seray wrote it down :) ).

    We both are peaceful people persons, outgoing, reliable, enthusiastic and adventurous. We like nature, animals, sports, travelling, music and dance.

    As a conclusion of Coronavirus, we got to be in a group of 15 travelers in a rural area in Rocha (Uruguay) living together for 3 months and keeping going an incredible project! We learnt a lot of gardening, animals, mushrooms, construction, carpentry as well as solidarity, coexistence, empathy and sharing. The experience that we have got with these special group of people during the pandemia is inutterable!
    Now, we are way more looking forward to discovering all the charming places and connecting with people from different corners of our beautiful planet! We'd like to share and experience as much as we can, and get inspired by the others.

    Hola! :)
    Somos Seray (Turquía) y Pablo (España). Hace tres años que nos conocimos en Rumanía mientras hacíamos sendos voluntariados relacionados con el medio ambiente.
    La experiencia nos encantó, por lo que seguimos viajando internacionalmente en busca de más.
    Antes de emprender este viaje, nuestra experiencia laboral pasa por el mundo del turismo, habiendo trabajado en recepción de hotel, hostelería, guía turístico, cocina, mantenimiento, etc.
    Académicamente, Seray es licenciada en psicología con experiencia en Recursos Humanos. Sin embargo, también ha probado otros sectores laborales relacionados con algunas de sus aficiones como el yoga, la lectura, o la cocina.
    Pablo estudió medio ambiente y estuvo trabajando en consultoría hasta el voluntariado en Rumanía, donde aprendió una nueva perspectiva del entorno relacionado con la enseñanza y los valores humanos. También es entrenador de fútbol-sala, enseñando a niños de distintas edades.

    Ambos somos personas que les gusta la aventura, y sin miedo a las nuevas experiencias, preparados para poner en práctica lo aprendido y aprender lo que aún no sabemos.
    Nos gusta el deporte, la fotografía, la música, y conocer gente nueva. Nos consideramos personas abiertas, habladoras y con ganas de conocer otras culturas.

    Por consecuencia del coronavirus y lo que ha significado a toda la comunidad viajera, nos quedamos tres meses en Rocha (Uruguay), en un increíble proyecto con una comunidad de unas 15 personas, donde aprendimos de construcción, carpintería, botánica y huerta, a trabajar la tierra, cuidar de los animales, etc. Aunque aprendimos mucho más de convivencia, respeto, solidaridad y empatía. Poco a poco reconstruimos un edificio e impulsamos la vida natural del entorno con nuestra dedicación. Sentimos como grupo que el ciclo se completaba y ahora es momento de dar el paso hacia lo desconocido, en busca de una nueva aventura.
