  • Description

    We are a family made up of 4 members, Soledad (36 years old), Walter (41 years old), Uma (Daughter - 7 years old) and Tahiel (Son - 4 years old). We are from Argentina and we really like to travel and meet new people and places, we are very interested in taking care of the environment and everything related to Permaculture, as well as the respectful education of children. In Tafí del Valle - Argentina, we have built our house with natural materials, using water treatment systems to avoid contamination, we also use solar energy systems for electricity and hot water. We really like cultural activities, especially dance and music, since we are tango dancers and teachers. Our daughter Uma takes ballet and violin classes, Walter likes to play musical instruments such as piano, guitar, bandoneon, etc. (autodidact),
    We live in a beautiful place among the mountains, in Tucumán, Argentina. We have a nice life there and we really enjoy living in a small town in the mountains and being in contact with nature. We decided to leave our home and travel to other places in search of new experiences, meet people, learn new things and enjoy other beautiful places in the world. We would like our children to enjoy this new experience and learn as much as possible while traveling. We would also like to start our trip in Spain, because we have realtives there and then go to France, Italy, and continue traveling through many countries in Europe. We would like to spend a lot of time traveling in Italy because it is a country we love.
    We have just started this adventure and we hope to meet wonderful people and places soon, and have the great experiences that the universe has prepared for us ...
