  • Description

    Hi! we are Javiera and Juan, a Chilean couple getting to know new places.

    On April we finished our one-year stay in Germany and we started we a trip around Europe working in exchange of accomodation.
    We both are publicists (Juan is a designer/drawer and Javiera digital marketer), but we were bored with office work and routine, so we decided to go out and live new experiences for a while.

    We have been in Sweden helping in a farm, in Belgium doing ranch work, in France we had two experiences, one of them was renovating an abandonated chateau and also getting ready the rooms for guest, and the other was taking care of animals and helping to clean and some small renovation in the house. we are currently in Italy. First, we worked in a agrotourism place, helping in the kitchen and with general maintenance and now we are in Castellammare di Stabia, a wonderful city close to Pompei, doing garden work.

    Our main goal is to meet new people, learn about their culture and have a good time. We are also interested in acquiring new skills in different areas, so we are open to help in whatever is necessary.

    We are open-minded, friendly, we like to socialize and have good conversations, but we also like to respect everyone's spaces.

    We speak Spanish, English and a little (very basic) German.
