2020 I discovered Italy. I now speak much better Italian!
2021, I want to come back to Italy (especially Sicily) to discover new persons and new regions...
I'm Claudine, a French woman, retired but lively and energetic. I like to laugh, to communicate, but to meditate too. I love culture and nature too.
I was born in Algeria where I spent the first eight years of my life (till the independance).
When I was 25, I went to Germany where I lived for 6 years.
After retiring, I went to Senegal (to the Casamance... the south of Senegal) where I spent 3 years in a small village, with good African friends (we had guest rooms).
Il like other people, languages and cultures. But I hate to travel as a tourist. I like to discover a country by living there and meeting local people, and Westerners who live in the country too.
I was in Chile in February 2015 and in Italy in October 2016 (to pick olives).
February, march, april 2017, I stayed 10 weeks in south India (Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka). A beautiful and interesting trip in Workaway-families (6 weeks) and involved with charity-projekts (2 weeks) . There, I could improve my english too!!!!
2017/2018 I stayed 5 months in Portugal and Spain. 2019 five months again in Spain and Portugal.
2020 I spent 3 months in Umbria (Italy) and 3 months in Sicily.
I was a teacher for most of my career: kindergarden and primary school teacher; German and French teacher for foreigners; teacher trainer. In Germany/ Berlin, I was a tourist guide too.
I don't like a life of routine. That's why I did different things: working one year on organic farms for example (goats, then vegetables, and finally cows, making cheese....).
Ad Angers partecipo ad un'associazione che ha fondato una valuta complementaria: la MUSE/ Monnaie à usage solidaire et écologique (association "Agir pour la transition").
Anche cucino come volontaria en il "Bistrot des citoyens du monde": cucina biologica, conferenze, concerti, un'universita popularia, etc
