  • Description

    Hello!! We are Alex and Francisco, a Portuguese couple from Lisbon and very excited about embarking on a trip around Andalucia in Spain, where we would like to stay a couple of months.
    In 2018 we had been travelling for 9 months in Asia, in India, Nepal, China, Philipines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. Later we went to Georgia, Turkey, Bulgaria and Romenia. We did lots of workaway volunteer jobs in farms, social media and reception in hostels, we worked in dog shelters, cat shelters and as tourist guides.
    After some years travelling as backpackers, we concluded, that getting to know people is what we love most. More than visiting sights, museums and palaces, we would like to exchange culture and smiles, learn more about the countries while living and working next to the locals and helping in their activities.
    We love nature and animals so we are really keen on any kind of outside activities. We are language teacher and computing technician back home but we are looking forward to new experiences and the learning of new skills.
    We consider ourselves responsible and reliable. Positive and open-minded.
    We are not looking for luxury, we are looking for magic.
