The Experience

I now am accepting only one more volunteer for helping and stay not in Lisbon but in a field were we have the vehicles and near the beach in charneca da Caparica, were surf beaches are 15min walking away from the place. The place has a autovan in the midle of the landplot whit nature, and the objective is to get some one to clean up everithing and take care of the garden/house/vehicles. If you like nature and surf, this is for you.

Ruben is a great host! He is kindhearted and generous, with lots of knowledge about Lisbon and Portugal that he happily shares. The workload here is incredibly reasonable, the accommodation is nice and working with Ruben is a joy. I am leaving here with new friends, more knowledge about Portugal, and new work skills. He even invited me back to volunteer with his production team, an opportunity I am very grateful for! I am thankful to have encountered this experience on my travels :)

It was my first time with Worldpackers, and couldnt have asked for a better experience. I helped him to better his project in the nature house and landplot. First of all Ruben is an amazing host, who makes you feel really welcomed. Even though I didnt have experience in the tasks asked, he gives really good instructions and i have learned a lot of new things here. He is a really smart and creative guy and talking with him has also maked me realize new things about myself. He also helped me to go surf more and makes things really easy. I would really like to come back someday. :)

It was my first experience on Worldpackers. Ruben was really nice and caring host from the beginning. I was the only volunteer at that time but still had a lot of fun and a big plus was his flexibility. Thinking of coming back someday 😀

I appreciate that the host was clear in his communication. I stayed in the Lisbon apartment where all the facilities were satisfactory: bed, kitchen, toilet

Rúben is lovely and have great ideas. He seems really passionate about his work! At the moment the productions are slow because of the war, so there is no much to do, but is so nice that we have free time to enjoy the city. The only thing is that I couldn't lock the room and the bathroom because I didn't have the key and I'm not used to it. Although that, the experience was nice, we shared ideas and I could enjoy Lisbon at the most.
