  • Description

    We are a Portuguese couple from Porto, who have been together for almost 10 years. Our deep passion is to travel, together we already made several trips, including an Inter-rail, 1 month traveling around Europe trough 8 countries and visited 15 cities; a trip in the Baltic trough 5 countries and a wild camping roadtrip in the north of Spain.

    After working in several cooperate jobs we want a new challenge: to spend time discovering the world. We are very interested in learning new skills and work outdoors. We are very open minded people on sharing traditions and lifestyles and we easily adapt to different cultural contexts.

    João is a professional photographer and videographer interested in landscapes and portraits. Besides working for different companies, he also worked in a world music festival, feature films and as a roadie for an Australian band in their European tour.
    For one year he volunteered at the Sigulda’s Waldorf Kindergarten, in Latvia, trough EVS (European Voluntary Service). There he worked with children: helping with the daily tasks, preparing kindergarten's activities and working outdoors with wood.

    Joana is a graphic designer who worked at companies and developed projects as a freelancer. She made Erasmus for a year in France where she lived with people from different parts of the globe and had the opportunity of sharing many cultures. During that time she also participated in the Design International Biennale of Saint-Étienne and traveled in France. She loves to draw and her dog Wally.

    Both, João & Joana, have been volunteers at Porto’s Support Center for the Homeless for 5 years. Every week they cook and distribute food and clothes to those who have social needs.

    Some of our hobbies:
    - Cooking delicious meals
    - Playing guitar and singing
    - Going to music festivals, exhibitions, talks
    - Taking walks in the beach and in the woods with our dogs
    - Meeting and traveling with friends
