huge Obrigato to Reynaldo and Rodrigo to accept me in Gravetto Family.Gravetto was really different from other Worldpackers's place, all the learning, activities..events, I never imagine cooking for so many costumers, during xmas events. It's a family! they looked after you..I feel sad to leave because all the people in the house where I spent Christmas with. Gravetto is challenging, inspirational, formative and intense. The worktime is very flexible and tasks easy to learn for beginners as well.. and Reynaldo is great. I have been so lucky! a must experience
a big hug.. SAUDADE ..a lot.

Me senti em casa na Casinha! O ambiente é muito confortável e o Rey deixa bem esclarecido as tarefas e turnos, o que deixa tudo mais tranquilo. Tive experiências incríveis em RJ e com os outros voluntários que vou levar pra vida!!! Eu adorava os turnos na confeitaria, poder ajudar o Rodrigo na gravetto é muito bom e deixa o voluntariado melhor ainda. Conheci pessoas ótimas e realmente da para ter uma troca verdadeira com a galera do Rio, foi minha primeira experiência e aprendi demais!!!

Foi minha primeira experiência como Worldpacker, o trabalho é dividido por turnos e tem uma planilha com todas as funções que precisam ser desempenhadas o que facilita muito pra fazer o trabalho, a casinha fica perto do metrô o que facilita o acesso a outros lugares, além de ter tudo perto (mercados, farmácias, padaria). O Reynaldo é uma pessoa mais na dele, porém é super solícito e aberto a ouvir, ele nos deixa muito a vontade para trabalhar do nosso jeito o que faz a casinha se tornar uma escola! Saio daqui muito feliz com a minha experiência, e com as pessoas que conheci!!

Las aulas de yoga junto a las jornadas de música y danza fueron lo mejor. Creo habría que mejorar la comunicación y trato con los voluntarios extranjeros. Pero la comida y el amor de las personas que viven en la Casinha Tropical es algo que aún siento saudades.
