  • Description

    Health Note: We've both been fully vaccinated against Covid and hold the EU Digital COVID Certificate (DCC).

    Note1: We are already on our journey for more than 1 year and a half, just doing Workaway, we have already done 7 Workaways (we've already come back in 2 of them). We have learned a lot, we have evolved a lot and we still feel that we are at the beginning of the journey, we still know that there is much ahead and and we are very proud of what we do and the great decision we made in our lives, today we see a lot of things in a different way.

    Note2: We don't consider ourselves tourists, we do this as a way of evolution and personal growth, we help people and projects, in exchange for sharing knowledge, moments, culture, language and making friends. We consider it a genuine exchange and we highly value it.

    We are a couple (Bruno 25 years old and Laleska 23 years old) and we are together 6 years.

    We are an independent and simple couple, but extremely organized, clean, focused, who like and feel good working in the places we like.

    Bruno worked with information technology (IT) for 6 years, since he was 16, he has worked for some companies, met many people and achieved an nice level and experience in IT.
    His greatest passions are riding a bicycle, sports, eating, nature, animals, good music, nice conversations and personal developing. What motivates him is the search for new experiences, adventures, skills and the life.

    Laleska has a degree in people management, working with human resources in a pharmaceutical company. She discovered during her professional experiences that she loves being able to help people and learn from them.
    His greatest passions are: reading books, helping people, taking care of animals, having contact with nature and eating.

    Over the years, we have reached the famous standard suggested by society: study + professional success + acquisition of material goods that we do not need. Throughout these achievements, we realized more and more that life is not just that, it is not enough, it seemed that we were living one day at a time, an empty life, based on consumerism, that we want to be instead of having.

    So, we stopped working, sold everything from our house, almost everything we had, and summarized our current life in two backpacks (24L and 18L).

    We decided to travel the world on a journey of self-knowledge and evolution, where we seek to leave the comfort zone completely, acquire incredible experiences, meet new people, new cultures, languages ​​and develop new skills.

  • What else ...

    We were educated from a young age by our family about the importance of doing chores in a shared family environment, so we will always contribute to keeping the place better than we found it and keep our accommodation and home clean. Unfortunately we don't really enjoy cooking but that doesn't mean we expect our host to cook for us every day. We always try to help, wash the dishes and load/unload the dishwasher every day.
