  • Description


    Ciao I am Victoria, living in beautiful Italy and interested in cultural exchange. I am a mother and grand mother who has also experienced being a 'Work Awayer'. Earlier this year I hosted a friend from Taiwan and learnt quite a bit about the Asian culture. I am very family oriented and love nature, gardening, cooking, meeting new people etc. I have a small vegetable garden, which needs watering in the mornings before I leave for work. There will also be other small chores, but you will have plenty of time to explore the Veneto region. I look forward to welcoming you :) I am also particularly interested in bettering my French which is very basic.
    My home is located in Padova region in a very small but quint little village. Not too far away is a beautiful bicycle/walking path near the Brenta river; there is also a lake for fishing and I think swimming on very hot summer days.

    Very interested in meeting people into yoga, meditation, knowledgeable about herbs and their medicinal properties,or can teach me to play my guitar, taking walks etc.

    Buses are readily available not too far from where I live or I can give a lift sometimes.
    Lots of historical monuments, lakes etc.
    I enjoy travelling, walking, going downtown for dinner/aperitivo, I am a bit of a foodie and sommelier in training.
