  • Description


    I have have been working abroad for long time and since I stopped this activity, I would like to maintain my English level that I acquired and to still improve it if possible. I don't smoke and I do not drink. I like to get in touch with people of different cultures and I enjoy travelling in Italy and abroad. I live by myself in a house with a garden which is located about 35 Km. in the south of Bologna in the mountain between Bologna and Florence. The place is located near to the entrance of the highway and 1 Km. from the railways station connecting Bologna to Florence, so it is easy to reach both towns. I live with two dogs (belgian shepherd Groenendael) so you should have a good feeling with dogs and don't be afraid. I am often spending weekend in mountains because I like outdoors sports in particular climbing and excursions. Few Km. from my home the ancient path called Via degli Dei connects Bologna to Florence crossing the Tuscan-Emilian Appennines and retracing parts of the ancient Flaminia military Roman road

    I like to make conversation so I hope to hear about your travels, experience and life and if you want to learn italian we can alternate some italian and some english conversation. I live near to mountains and I like outdoor sports (climbing and mountaineering) so it is possible to organize some weekends in mountain visiting the neighborhoods. I often join some friends that have the some interest and you could be part of the group.

  • Help


    I live by myself so I don't need that you help with chores very much. I just would like that you take care of your room and we can divide between us the tasks to be done about common area (cleaning, cooking and feeding the dogs). During spring, autumn and summer I could need some help in the garden to cut the grass and the wood but this will depend on your skill and I won't ask you to do activities that could be dangerous like cutting wood.
