  • Description


    I'm a single mother of a 20 yr old workawayer girl and a young boy aged 13 (still too young to go workawaying).

    We live in Italy, in the lovely Tuscan countryside. We are located just 8 km away from downtown Siena, a medioeval town full of architectural and artistic treasures of all kinds.

    I work in Siena, and practice and teach yoga in my spare time. Love trekking and biking and discovering. I speak Italian, English, Spanish and German; love gardening and growing tomatos, squash, salads and more… depending on weather and season in the green garden; I adore cooking my own stile (no recipes please); and travelling in the weekend to the nearby beaches or mountains.

    I'm vegetarian and we tend to eat organic food at home as much as possible, although we sometimes cook also meat for the growing boy who loves salciccia and ribs.

    My son is learning English and French at school, but I'd love to meet and host someone who can speak with him the spoken language with the right accent :-) .

    We have 2 cats living indoor and outdoor, depending on the mood, but happily using our sofa quite often (an alert for allergic workawayers).

    So in short we’d love to meet new friends and learn from different cultures, offering accomodation against some help in housekeeping, house mantainance, animal care or in English language conversation.

    Would love meeting someone able to paint the house, at least a few rooms would really need some help:-)
