We are Paul and Valentina, a Franco-italian couple with the passion for travelling and discovering new cultures.
Valentina comes from a small town situated in the heart of Tuscany, Italy. She took a Bachelor's Degree in Cultural and Linguistic Mediation and soon after that she worked as hotel receptionist during 9 months. She loves meeting people coming from everywhere in the world and sharing with them different points of view. This is what led her to study foreign languages since she is 13. In her spare time she likes drawing, dancing, swimming and cooking. The fact of growing up in the middle of the countryside defined her passion for natural landscapes and animals.
Paul just finish its second year of Master in international Management in Shanghai, China after having traveled for studies and fishing in Sweden, Italy, Scotland and Ireland. New Zealand represents a lot for him ! he was a fishing guide for a Bed and Breakfast in Ireland during 4 seasons. Fishing and mainly fly-fishing for trouts has an important place in its life and New Zealand is a dream which became true since he landed last January ! Also it is someone very active preparing one the toughest triathlon : The Iron Man.
We arrived in New Zealand last January and since then we have been travelling around the 2 Islands. Our goal is to visit this beautiful country and meet some locals in order to create interesting cultural exchange. We are an active couple plenty of motivation an curiosity! We will be happy to meet you and to help you !
