The Experience

A Raposaria tem 10 hectares e em vários pontos a beleza cênica merece maior capricho na jasdinagem e paisagismo rústico, ou seja, pedras, plantas locais ou rústicas, etc, de modo que valorize a beleza e seja algo sustentável (nao precise por exemplo regar diariamente). Gostaria por exemplo de embelezar lagos pequenos, com pedras, vegetação, e se possivel com bancos e mesas rusticos feitos com madeira.

Essa foi a minha primeira experiência na Worldpackers, depois de muita procura eu encontrei o projeto. Honestamente, em poucos lugares fui tão bem acolhida como lá. Desde o primeiro dia, o Gui e a Érica me fizeram sentir como se eu estivesse em casa. As tarefas são simples, e eles respeitaram os horários. Aprendi muito sobre a vida no sítio, que vou levar comigo e compartilhar. A paisagem com certeza te deixa sem fôlego, e transmite uma paz imensa, vou sentir muita falta disso, do lugar, das pessoas, da comida (maravilhosa haha), e com certeza, dos animais. Espero poder voltar um dia :)

Oi Bia, obrigado pelos elogios, ficamos muito felizes que pra vc tenha sido uma experiência bacana. Foi a primeira vez pra nós também, e sua personalidade, agradável, tranquila e discreta fizeram toda a diferença. Também quero destacar que mesmo quando vc ficou menos assistida, foi muito disciplinada e jamais percebi corpo mole da sua parte. Ou seja, vc foi muito comprometida (e profissional, se é que a palavra se encaixa). Fiquei realmente impressionado nesse sentido. Espero que leve os bons momentos e que retorne quando puder. Será sempre bem-vinda. Forte abraço
