  • Description

    Left behind old roads to seek new ones. We lately entered new paths to look for inspiring and thrilling opportunities, at both professional and personal level. Everyone owns only one life. More suitable playing the game well.

    We are Federico, an Italian guy, and Genilyn, a Filipino girl. We are happily married. Federico was born and raised in the wonderful Tuscany, while Genilyn grew up in the uncontaminated Filipino countryside. We both love travelling, ongoing learning and practicing foreign languages. Federico is a fond of nature, biodiversity and environmental conservation. Genilyn has a huge experience with elderly and kids. We would like to make some wonderful experiences while exploring the world and getting to know nice people!
