  • Description

    Ciao ! My name is Riccardo and I come from the beautiful Piedmont, Northern Italy. I'm studying Mechanical Engineering in Torino and I play the trumpet in a young Street Band. I love hiking, exploring nature and taking pictures with my drone.

    Travelling is my passion. I do like both short and long trips, especially those involving the use of kayaks, sailing boats or bicycles. I would be glad to improve my English, visit new countries and find great people around the world !

    I am an easy going boy suitable for teamwork and any other kind of project, not afraid of getting my hands dirty. I joined Workaway because of the great opportunities a work&travel experience can offer to those who want to discover the world and get in touch with different cultures.

  • More details about your skills

    I lived half of my life in the countryside and I achieved a quite good experience in gardening, cutting wood and animal care. My house has always been surrounded by many animals: cats, hens, rabbits, parrots, a dog and a horse. I know how to deal with wine making and homebrewing.

    A couple of years ago I have worked with other engineering students on a handmade sailing boat. Here I learned to use fiberglass, carbon fibres, epoxy resins and other composite materials. Moreover, I'm a self-taught sailor and I would love to help you with your boat.

    I consider myself a sociable tourist guide and a reliable host: I love to interact with AirBnB guests and join them during their trips, as well as welcoming them when they first arrive to the place where I am staying. Since I usually collect a lot of information about the surroundings and the local culture, people often like to entertain themselves talking with me.

    What about computers ? Even if I'm not an expert, I would be glad to give you a hand to produce posts, photos and videos for your website/blog/facebook/you tube channel. If you're interested, I could translate your contents and make the italian version of your internet page.

    I can help children with homeworks - especially Maths, Physics, Science, Latin and Ancient Greek - and also teach them the Italian language, if interested. I'm used to work with children because I volunteered for many years in a local summer camp: group games are my favourite !

  • What else ...

    I had my first workaway experience in the beautiful Lofoten archipelago (northen Norway), working with the renovation of an old wooden house by the ocean and helping with tourists. Then I spent another summer in the fjords, taking care of a big hobby farm: a lot of animals, stunnig landscapes and amazing guests.

    I visited most of european countries, but there are still some awsome regions I would like to explore. This is the reason why I want to have my next workaway adventures there. I love outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, kayaking and sailing. I like to be part of a young working team and learn as much as possible from other people: their skills, their language and above all their culture.
