    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    We are quite experienced in traveling abroad and meeting new people :)
    🤸 Joshua went from home to Turkey hitchhinking & workawaying and comes back from India
    🧞 Lara did a 2 years world tour volunteering for sustainable food NGOs in Asia & Latin America
    🦸 Diego stayed 2 years travel-working in Australia and comes from Belgium & Chili!
    What we have in common: South America! 🤩

    We already welcomed few people as informal workawayers as we are socialising quite easily and sometimes meet travellers and used to welcome then at our house in exchange of a bit of help in the garden ☘️

    As we are very new on the platform we have no reviews yet but we are currently with our first amazing workawayers (😍) & we feel like everything is going great! 🫶

    Can't wait to travel again through you!!

    - installation of a drip system & water pipe

    And loooots of other little DIYs! Wild ideas welcome 🤗

    3) Renovation of a town garden in Collioure, stone wall, outdoor kitchen & creation of a bath (especially if you have bricklaying/masonry skills!), various DIY: ask us!

    👉 The exchange is based on a 4(,5) hours of help on the building site and/or at the plots, usually from 8-9AM to 12.30-2PM with a break in the morning & we lunch together :)

    - your joie de vivre with us
    - your independence and pro-activity in everyday life (we're neither educators nor parents to remind you to clear the table and keep to the timetable;))
    - your good ideas for improving our projects
    - your interest in sharing, in nature and overall in life & love
    - your punctuality and reliability

    🛏️ We provide private or shared accommodation: we have a mini-tiny-house, a gypsy caravan and a van (3 double beds available, couples welcome).

    ⛺️ The mini-tiny can be shared adding a simple bed on the floor if needed. It is located on a plot 5min away from Joshua's house and has electricity, water access, solar shower and dry toilets too.

    🛋️ At Joshua's plot : shared kitchen and bathroom, dry toilets, solar panels, gas cooker & hot water but small cool box as a fridge! Cosy and rootsy at the same time :)

    🍲 We offer 3 meals/ingredients, mostly veggie (as the boys are). We cook together as much as possible depending on our availability: your host Joshua and his sister Lara work a few days a week away from the place (ceramic shop in Collioure). Can't wait to discover your culinary specialities! 🥞🍹

    👉 The common space being Joshua’s house, its access is free from 7.30AM (8.30AM on week-ends) to 10PM :)
