  • Description


    Hello and thank you for being interested in our profile.
    We are a young and funny family of 3. Camelia, John and Lucas 29 month old. We are living in a flat in Elche, a beautiful city near Alicante. The city has excellent communications thanks to the international airport Alicante-Elche, the complete network of motorways, the nearby port and the railway connection, which will soon have a high-speed train too. All of this, together makes Elche a unique place to go for visitors that want to discover somewhere different.
    I love learning languages and knowing other cultures and I used to make exchanges and to travel, but nowadays with my son, the work and the house, I don't have time enough so it would be great receiving another people to practice languages and exchange any experiences instead of going ourself.
    I am native speaker of Romanian and also fluent in Spanish. In Brazilian Portuguese I'm intermediate and some more than basics skills in English and German.
    Any doubt, please don't hesitate to contact us.
    Best regards!
