  • Description

    Hi I'm Ben, a blend of British/Kiwi having grown up in the UK and New Zealand. I love learning new skills and working outside - I always enjoy cooking and learning new dishes especially. I've only recently started learning to grow plants (in my small apartment) and want to really learn about living in the country and growing to appreciate natural processes.

    I'm never happier than when engaged in conversation on life, discussing films, books, travelling. We can all impart knowledge to each other to learn and grow.

  • What else ...

    I love studying history from just about anywhere in the world and of course here in Italy! You'll never find me far from a book or discussion.
    Cooking is my second great passion, something I can definitely improve upon with a willing teacher. I'd say that these are my two great passions in life, but of course there are many other things I am interested in.
