I'm a separate woman 40 years old, I have 2 twin children of 4 years and they stay with me at alternate weeks, so I have some free time even I work as a clerk at the university of Padova.
I like traveling, cultural exchanges, getting in touch with new people and diferent cultures. I like walking and trekking in the nature, but I also like to visit cities, museums, churches,... I like reading, interested in spiritual issues, I like singing and music in general, I like cooking and trying cuisines from other countries.
I guess that if you wisit me, You will have the chance to
improve or start
learning italian and I can improve English and Norwegian what I'd prefer the most but I could improve french, german, spanish and other languages!
I'm almost blind and I guess it could be an oportunity to experience life with someone with this kind of disability; I think it could
be a human experience, something who can open your mind, finding out that's
it is possible to rise children even though mamy is visual impaired and do many other things as a so called normal person can do.
. You will see
that I can lead an independent and good life.
It wold be great if you could help me with things that I really can't do like driving the car or otehr things that
it would take more time and energy if I did by my self like reading something, I can use the pc well and the smart selfphone too but sometimes some websites ar not accessible for the blind and you can help me with that.
I will provide for acomodation, food
and travel expenses when we are together like petrol and or bus and train tickets.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
You can experience life in an italian family: habits, italian food, if you are interested you can improve or you can start learning italian. You can also experience life with two little wins where the parents are visual impaired, I think it could be a human experience, something who can open your mind, finding out that's possible to rise children even though mamy and daddy are almost blind, experiencing how we can be endependent despite our disability and you can offer your help to do things tha we absolutely can't do or that it takes more time and energy for us.
I need someone who can drive since I'm visual impaired, someone who like walking, traveling to hang out together.

This host offers a language exchange
Interested in improving English and Norwegian. My mother tongue is Italian.
I can offer a separate room with a single bed, the room is small but confortable.
The place where i live is quiet with any annoyig noise during the night because the main street is pretty far away from the house. I live in a flat not that big, the bathroom is just one for all.
I live with the au pair who helps me with the babies.
When I host someone, the babies won't be there. My current au pair and my ex au pairs will be glad to give their feed-back about me!
What else ...
I live in Padova in the north of Italy , in a district not far away from the centre. The city is small full of history and art, where we have one of the most important university of Italy. You can also find many green areas and you can visit an important botanical garden Unesco world heritage (ABOUT 7,000 BOTANICAL SPECIES). The botanical garden as a site for the conservation of biodiversity. Considering that only 10% of the plant species on earth.
Padova is well served by public transports and if you like you can use the bike. Padova is a lively city full of students and young people in general. I work at the university so I'm well informed about courses and other interesting interprisings for turists. Padova is also just 30 minutes by train away from Venice!
