Enjoying the sun and looking for a workaway in a community/eco-village !
Notre prochaine destination :Portugal Voir tout
Hi there ! We are Valentine and Max. We are currently travelling around Western Europe for 5 months. We used to have a casual big city life during 3 years before deciding to buy a 1992 camper van (aka Gary). The goals of our travel are mainly to experience a more minimalist way of life, to slow down the rythm, to take the time to "be" instead of "have" and to meet people from all walks of life.
We are (at least we think we are haha) easygoing people and respectful. We were used to live with other people during our studies and after in housesharing as well. We like to try to adapt to people when we integrate a "community".
For us, the Workaways are the opportunity to exchange with other people, since roadtripping is quite centered on us. We are open about the nature of the job. Although, we prefer to work WITH the host rather than FOR the host. According to our experience, helping people in specific projects is always more satisfaying than being a maintenance worker.
Hope to see you soon

Quelles sont vos compétences ?
Max : I studied mechanical engineering (but who cares?) and while not being a professional worker I'm always up for all kind of DIY jobs.
Valoucita : I studied agronomy for tropical regions and am currently learning medicinal plants on my own. My main interests are cooking, managing/helping for cultural events,...
Plus de détails sur les langues qui m'intéressent
We both are native French speakers. We are fluent in English and we understand Dutch but it is not easy to talk in Dutch. Valentine speaks fluent Spanish while Max is still learning with his cariño (and is getting quite good). Val would love to learn Português! (I am currently trying to have some basics via Duolingo app, but speaking with native is definitly the best way to learn).)
28 & 26
We love travelling (India, South Africa, Benin, Malawi, China, etc). We are also working on a duo music project and are always rdy to take part to musical exchange ! We like to cook and it would be a pleasure to cook for others and to make bread. We are also used to not leave a host without cooking fresh belgian fries (soooooo gooooood).

Thanks to the cultural association you have, there was a lot of activities and it was very dynamic. All the people we met will stay forever in our hearts and our memory.
The place is surrounded by an amazing nature and the view amazed us every day.
