  • Description


    Tell Workawayers about yourself? If you saw my profile on Facebook, you would understand that I love the earth and also the other dimensions of this Planet: Air, Sea and Earth! For this reason, I made a choice of life, I abandoned city life and I went down here in Sicily and I bought 4 hectares of land between Avola and Noto, very close to the Laghetti di Cava Grande del Cassibile. I have three children, 6 dogs etc. I am a diving instructor who also loves scuba diving, and I have a 5.5-liter boat with which to dive or go hiking. In the land there are many jobs to do: looking after the vegetable garden, watering the trees, pruning, grafting, planting trees, etc. I also have a lot of equipment to work starting with the tractor, motor hoes, chainsaws etc. Anyone who wants hospitality in exchange for help is welcome!

    Racconta a Workawayers di te?
