  • Description

    Hello, my name is Luana i was born in Brasil, but at a young age i moved to the United States, then moved back to Brasil. After high school studied Hospitality and graduated in Tourism and Hotel business. That being finished, I decided to go out and experience life in a diferent way. I have been backpacking for five years now, and I simply love it. Everywhere I go and all the people I meet, makes my life have bigger and better meaning. Really the traveling and volunteering for me has always been about creating a new lifestyle, understanding and loving all cultures, all people, and being conected to nature. My life goal is to build my own house through permaculture principals and hopefully be as sustainable as posible, living in harmony with all those around me and specially with NATURE. Since i left my home town i decided i would not go back to living in a big city, so i mainly look for places away from the crowed cities and trafic noise. This also allows me to be closer to villagers and to myself, creating and participating in many projects, helping people make their dream come to life.
    I've been traveling through South America for the past four years. Where i have done some work in the area of Tourism and hospitality. During my experiences in volunteer work i may say i have enjoyed a lot just beeing able to learn from different cultures, understanding other types of life, other personalities and many diferent ways of working. I have learned so much about myself, things I like and ahat I don't like, and this just continues. I am very enthusiastic about life, I love to dance and laugh and make music and all arts. Just living and learning every step of the way. I am here to give and recieve, and to find a way of living that actually means caring and bulding up real relations with others, myself and the planet.
