We are a Norwegian/Italian couple, with the interest of meeting people from different countries, sharing cultures, learning languages, enjoying outdoors activities during the free time. We live on the hills near Verona, in a beautiful natural place, near a national park and the lake of Garda. Veronica, Norwegian (29) fashion designer, Massimo (38) Italian, engineer. We both work in the fields of design, internet and entrepreneurship.
We enjoy to spend our free time on the wonderful natural places we are surrounded by, doing several outdoor activities with friends as hiking, running, mountain biking, tennis, windsurfing. It would be great to improve our English with our guests and to have some help in the house. Our guests could join us on these sport outdoor activities if they have this wish.
