  • Description

    Hey ! We are Paul and Leila, two friends from France. We both are 21. Paul is from Paris and Leila is from Orléans. We met each other’s during our studies and we share the same values: a simple way of life, the joy in meeting unknown people, and love of nature. We enjoy life and like to feel free, to going against the flow in this fast world. Last Summers, during few weeks we were hitchhiking only with our bags and sleeping bags. We went to La Rochelle and on Re Island, in the Alps, in Switzerlands, we met incredible people who host us simply after few talks in their cars. Its were very cool experiences, so we're used to travel like this now.
    We are looking for some hosts during summer and before (may-september), the period will be precised in our messages, and depending on our request, it can be alone or both of us.
    Many hosts are afraid of couples of workawayers because they can stay together and may not socialize. We understand this point of view, but we are not a couple (just friends) and we are really autonomous, free from each other. We are both really open-minded.
    What we are looking for? To meet new people, to build strong friendship, to learn about and from them. We love to discover new things and to learn new skills. Sharing is the most important thing we are looking for. Permaculture, agriculture, animal caring, woodcraft, building… are some fields about which we would love to learn more.
    If you're curious, you can read an individual description for each of us :

    Paul :
    Hi ! I’m Paul and I am a young student in social sciences and politics. To be honest, the current world seems crazy to me. The usual way of life (especially in Paris) don’t match with my world view and it’s why I take the opportunity of my holidays to have a lot of new true experiences, to meet many great and inspirational people, in order to build my philosophy and to find how I want to live my life. I work a lot on the climate issue (on the political and economical ways to act) and I want to learn and do more about practical things (at a human level) for this issue.
    I love to meet new friends. I can talk for hours around a campfire, a beer or a good wine, or just in a peacefull atmosphere: Talk about life, philosophy, how to make the world a better place, or experiences of each other’s.
    I’m a nature lover so I’m eager to take part in eco-projects, to learn more about permaculture, eco-construction or other things like this.
    I’m also a lover of humankind so I love to live in communities. I have a several experiences about living in a community (including as a volunteer) and I love that: Sharing, mutual assistance, learn from each other’s. Community is an idea I want to develop for the future so I’m interested by every experiences.
    I also have experiences with children: I worked with children during some holidays as a monitor. On top of that, I have a really large family, and a trisomic little brother so I’m very careful and open-minded.
    I’m really attached to environmental and equality causes. I dream to travel, meet people from all around the world and then, to settle in a little village with friends where I could develop a community life, in harmony with nature and to approach self-sufficiency by developing permaculture maybe.
    I also love to play ukulele !!

    Leïla :
    Hi ! I’m Leïla ! Since almost 8 months, I work in a really great association which try to make people realise that they have the power to act (empowerment) through solidary and environmental volunteer works. I am part of a big family of 6 brothers and sisters where each one has a singular path, and 30 cousins. I always do a lot of sports since I was a child (dance, gymnastic, climbing, rugby, and handball) and now, I skate. I like to stand back, and break free from all the society learned to us, in order to make my own opinion without prejudices and social constructions. I love human relationships, meet people who have the same values than me, discover common features as much I love to meet people who are totally different from me and what I know. We have so much to discover from the others and from everything we don’t know. I feel, and I try, to be more and more invested, in particular in environment and solidarity’s areas to be the most coherent with what I care about. I am eager to learn new things every day, eager of discoveries, travels, adventures, new experiences. My greatest happiness is sharing: exchange, discuss, give and receive.

    Hope to meet you soon ;)
