My name is Federica, I'm from Sardinia (Italy) but I was living on and off in San Sebastian, a beautiful town in the Basque Country, for about 8 years.
I decided to take a time for myself and travel around Asia, Australia and New Zeland . I started travelling almost 2 and half years ago ....in New Zealand, where I've been living for the past 15 months I've dedicate my time to learn as much as I could about natural buildings...I've basically developed a big passion for it and I've been able to start as a volunteer and then I was getting paid to get the job done so that my intentions are becoming more and more clear and strong...
I love manual work and I am mostly interested in eco projects but also in anything related to natural materials like woodwork, pottery and weaving. During this experiences in NZ I've learned quite a lot about mudbricks, earthen plasters, earthen floors,tadelakt and straw bale houses etc.. . I also like gardening , harvesting ( even if I am not quite experienced in this) or anything also where I can put my hands on!!!
I just arrived to Chile and I am helping a couple of friends who are building a light infill ( timberframe structure with an infill of straw mixed with clay) house in a majestic place in front of the volcano of Villarica close to Pucón..I am going to stay here until mid March and then I am looking forward to travel as much as I can through south America while getting involved in any kind of project related to my interests. I think this is the way of travelling that suit me the best and also an amazing way to be able to get in touch with local communities!!
I am a sociable person, openminded, also reliable and tidy and I can adapt easily to any environment.
I am not a fussy eater, actually I enjoy trying always something new and I won't say that I'm great in the Kitchen but I can cook and I can make a very good Tiramisu!!!
I'm sure I'll meet excellent hosts and workawayers out there!!
