Hi I'm Valentina, a 40 years old Neapolitan woman :-) Something about myself:
I studied psychology and I lived in South America, where I worked for different NGO as psychologist and social worker.
In 2010 I moved to Ireland where I lived for 7 years. There I learnt about self sufficiency, organic gardening, fishing, blending and dispensing herbal remedies.
I'm a qualified massage therapist, trained in Swedish massage, Thai massage, reflexology, sport and deep tissue massage.
3 years ago I bought my piece of land in Portugal, after travelling and volunteering as workawayer for a year.
It's a little paradise, surrounded by nature and only 10 minutes driving to the beach.There is a pond on the property and a small stream too. There are over 6000 m2 of land with fruits trees, sheep and bees. I also have 5 chickens and 2 sweet dogs.
I like practicing yoga and acroyoga, I enjoy hikes in the forest, good food, wine, music, movies and spending time with friends. I love working with my hands, creating beautiful (and not so beautiful) things, fixing broken stuff, restoring, renovating. I love to see tangible results and the feeling of accomplishment that comes with it.
Any help is welcome here, just drop me a message!
